New Jersey girl, Aratrika Dey wins Zee TV SRGMP Little Champs North America
MUMBAI: Bollywood star Ali Zafar, model and actress Lauren Gottlieb and actor Jackky Bhagnani showed up as celebrity guests at North America Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs finale.
The episode was shot recently at Famous Studio in Mumbai. Hosts Aditya Narayan will be seen giving company to Ali and Monali.
From over 20,000 audition entries, top 14 finalists of SRGMP Lil champs North America were selected and competed on the SRGMP sets specially crafted for them! Aratrika Dey from NJ takes home the winner trophy; Niranjanaa Kannan from WA and Preetish Chakroborty from IL becomes the 1st and 2nd runner up of Zee TV SRGMP Lil Champs North America held in Mumbai, India.
Sameer Targe, General Manager of Zee TV Americas says, “I am very surprised to see the level of talent that exists amongst the 2nd generation South Asian kids. Ironically all the top 14 finalists are born and raised in America and seldom get to visit India to understand the language. Yet singing fluently and soulfully without understanding the lyrics is commendable. For me the real winners are the parents who despite living so far away from India have encouraged their children to explore Indian music and culture.”
