They showed us their innovative style of Kathak, kept the classical form pure and today they stand as winners of IGT-5. Hip Hip Hurray for Raagini Makkar and Naadyog!
This group of 50 girls has been named as winners of IGT-5 from among top 10 worthy finalists. The journey began for Raagini Makkar as a challenge and she decided to teach Kathak and open an academy. Soon lot of girls joined in and entering IGT-5 became a dream. After successfully owning the auditions, the group went on to impress the judges and the audience in the Semi Finals with a unique act on Balam Pichkari. The USP of this group has always been to portray Kathak in its purest form and not Bollywood-ize it.
On winning this prestigious title and her enlightening journey Raagini commented, “I am really thankful to all the audience who voted and believed in us. And more importantly I am grateful to the judges for having the faith in us. I believe if we put in our hard work and devotion into something we really believe in, we will achieve our goals.”
Other than Raagini and Group the top 3 contestants named are little genius Anshu Kumar, magical fingers Saei Jamshed and dance wonder Subhreet Kaur!
