The journey of NDTV Imagine’s Lux Junoon Kuchh Kar Dikhaane Ka comes to a resounding finale today. Harshdeep Kaur from Sufi Ke Sultan, was crowned the winner.

After she was declared a winner, an overwhelmed Harshdeep Kaur said, "Manzilein unko milti hain jinke kadmon mein jaan hoti hai! Pankhon se kuch nahi hota…hoslon se udaan hoti hai!"

We had a talk with the winner about the journey in the show and this is her take...

“I was positive about winning the show and today I’m very happy as my hard work paid off,” she expresses.

Elaborating on her journey she explains, “These four months for me was full of activity. Every time there was a new challenge and we all were busy preparing for it, doing riyaaz and then shooting for long hours. Today it’s the end of my journey with Junoon, but also a new start.”

“Junoon was an important platform for me as it has given me recognition. I have sung number of songs as playback singer, but this show has given me face. Today people not only know me for my voice, but also recognize me by face which is a good feeling,” she adds further.

Why did you choose Sufi when you could have easily gone for Bollywood? “I had been doing playback singing but in this show, I wanted to do something different. I have not learned this special gharana, but heard it and thus tried singing. My take away from the show is the experiences,” she quips.

Harshdeep has recently sung for Himesh Reshamiya’s Karzz. “I have sung the title track for the film. Besides that I also sung for Rang De Basanti and many others. Today my family is very proud of me and I also thank my mentor Ali Khan">Rahat Fateh Ali Khanji for supporting and nourishing me,” she concludes.

The finale episode also saw all the eliminated contestants of each genre perform for one final time and stupendous performances by the mentors Ustad Ali Khan">Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Ila Arun, Anand Raj Anand, leaving the viewers and studio audience hooting for more. And above all, Bollywood's most sought after stars Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan will be gracing the Grand Finale tonight, September 27th....
