According to Saach.tv correspondent, the grand finale of Sur Kshetra was held at the World Trade Centre on Thursday.
Indian and Pakistani music aficionados thronged the venue at the World Trade Centre in Dubai on Thursday evening to be part of the grand finale of the reality show Sur Kshetra.
As with most events, the show began almost an hour late, but once it started it ensured the audiences were glued to their seats.
So what, if the hall was not filled to capacity, they were treated to the mastery of legends, who comprised the jury panel – Asha Bhosle, Runa Laila, Abida Parveen, Ghulam Ali, Ismail Darbar, Sajjad, and Suresh Wadkar.
Once the teams stepped on to the stage, the crowd turned noisy. The audiences gathered, however, seemed to support the Pakistani singers more.
Pakistan team’s mentor Atif Aslam was the favourite, with girls especially hooting for him. And when he rendered his 5-minutes medley the crowd went berserk.
Himesh Reshamiya, Indian team’s mentor did not fail to impress either. He belted out 25 of his songs in 14 minutes. ‘Mujhe yaad sataye teri’, ‘Go go Govinda’ and ‘Hookah bar’ got the crowd on their feet.
But once the contestants took stage, it was serious business. The judges were seen attentively listening and so were the mentors, who were both seated on stage.
There were six contestants each from both teams. They were eliminated one by one and finally there were six finalists on the bench: Three from Pakistan and Three from India.
There were two rounds in Finale. In the first round the competition was held between Dil Jaan and Yash Raj. Dil Jaan won this first Round.
In the second round the competition was held between Nabeel Shaukat Ali and Mulazim Hussain. Nabeel Shaukat Ali won this second round.
The audience seemed to like Nabeel Shaukat Ali, while Yash Raj and Diljaan were the judges favourites.
Then the third and final round of finale took place between Dil Jaan and Nabeel Shaukat Ali.
Both the contestants were given a variety of songs to sing. As Dil Jaan can only sing one type of songs so he remained unsuccessful in singing few songs. Nabeel Shaukat Ali excellently sung all the songs because of his versatility and so he was declared winner!
Nabeel was awarded 200,000/- Rs, Suzuki Motorbyce, Touchmet Tablet, Gold Button Jacket, and the beautiful Sur Kshetra Trophy!
