Saumya Kamble from Pune became the winner of India's Best Dancer Season 2 on Sunday night. Saumya is beyond happy right now. She thanked her parents, her choreographer (Vartika Jha), judges, and other choreographers and people who voted for her and supported her journey. Speaking to Times of India, she shared that it wasn't easy for her as her father wanted her to become a doctor but after witnessing her perform on stage, he was convinced that she is a dancer.
"When I won, he picked the trophy and I could see that he felt really proud. I was emotional to witness that because he did not support me earlier. When I was selected in the top 5 then he said that I can become a dancer," she shared. "Jab unhone bola ki yeh dancer hi banegi, that meant everything to me," she added.
She further shared that her mother always supported her and she worked hard to make her mother proud. "I am here because of my mother's hard work and support, it has kept me going. It was her dream to participate in a dance reality show but she could not. She has stayed awake stitching costumes for me and nobody knows about this struggle. That is why I wanted to work hard because I wanted to make her proud."
