Sushil first rose to fame after winning the jackpot prize of Rs.5 crore on the fifth season of game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati 5". He entered "Jhalak..." as a 13th contestant, whose identity was kept under wraps until the show went on air in July.
A non-dancer, the 27-year-old managed to win the hearts of judges Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D'Souza on the show with his humbleness and ever-smiling nature. Madhuri fondly called him "antarmukhi" (introvert).
Sushil worked hard to match steps with his choreographer Alisha as they performed dance forms like salsa, Bollywood and freestyle.
His endearing smile and hardwork helped him retain a place in the show so far, but his journey came to an end in a decision, jointly based on audience voting as well as judges' marks and feedback.
