New Delhi, August 13 (Agency) 

 

Winning reality show "Dance India Dance Li'l Masters 2" seems like a "dream" for Faisal Khan, whose father is an autorickshaw driver. The 13-year-old is now nurturing bigger dreams of being a complete performer a la Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan.

 

"I'm very happy after winning the show. It all seems like a dream. There was a lot of competition, but my only strategy was to give my best," Faisal told IANS over phone from Pune.

 

"When I grow up, I want to be like Hrithik Roshan. He is such a good dancer as well as an actor. I want to be like him," he added.

 

Faisal, a standard eight student from Meera's School in Mumbai, pipped four other finalists to take home the 'Master Blaster' title, the winner's trophy and a cash prize of 10,00,000.

 

What does he plan to do with so much money?

 

"I have given my prize money to my parents, and they will invest it in my studies and learning dance," he said.

 

The show, he says was a "learning experience", and added: "I got to learn so many new dance forms. It was a completely new experience. I will relish all my time."

 

He says whenever he used to be nervous before going to the stage, he used to remember his dance guru, choreographer Prince's words.

 

"He said 'Just give your best" and I used to feel relaxed," said Faisal, who has also been promised his first brush with Bollywood thanks to Akshay Kumar.

 

Akshay came on the show to unveil the first look of his forthcoming film "Oh My God" at the show's grand finale, held in Pune Sunday night. He was so floored by the five finalists that he made them an offer on the spot - he promised them a chance to be part of an exciting promotional dance video of "Oh My God".
