Sarikakapoor---I wholeheartedly agree with you. For me, Bharti is the true winner of this season simply because of her sincerity, determination, and hard work. She is the only contestant with the greatest personal limitation (her body size) and despite the fact that she isn't the best dancer, she nonetheless strives to overcome her limitations and try to aspire to the levels of people like Rithvick, Rashmi, and Isha in terms of technicality. That really takes guts to not only pass such a big hurdle but to even try to reach such high standards is simply mindblowing, heart-warming, and inspiring.
To me, Bharti is not the best dancer, but the best performer. She takes dance very seriously, she bring grace in her movements where it's needed, her expressions are so fitting and lovely to watch, she brings a large degree of cleanliness in her movements, she recently has been having superb energy in her dances, and brings an excellent entertainment value to her acts. It's like almost a complete package of enjoyment.
With the way I sound now, like a Bharti pankhi, it may be hard to believe that before the show started, I had very great doubts about her dancing and was sure she was going to be out in the first or second week. But she exceeded my expectations and I began to have hopes about her. Then when the time came for double performances, I fell into doubt again. I figured two performances is not what her stamina will be able to take (since even in a single performance, she forgets some steps or her movements are vague a few times). That prediction came true the first week the double performances started and I felt Bharti had done the worst of all the contestants and she deserved to be out that week. I was rather disheartened since I did not want to see Bharti go (as I was quite fond of her)...but I had to play fair.
Well, public (or CVs as some conspiracy theorists say) decided to keep her in and give a second chance. That second chance was this last week and my goodness, not only did she excel but even went beyond my expectations again. Bharti is simply amazing. She has so much of my respect and I feel so proud of her. Just love this woman...she does things that normally people like her don't do: matching levels with other comedians in a male-dominated comedy world and now dancing like no other woman of her body size can.
I salute you, Bharti.
