Ishita Vishwakarma on Sunday emerged as the winner of Zee TV’s ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2018’. Along with the winner’s trophy, Ishita Vishwakarma also took a home cash prize of Rs 5 lakh and a brand-new car. The Ishita Vishwakarma 16-year-old beat Sahil Solanki, Tanmay Chaturvedi, Aishwarya Pandit, Sonu Gill, and Aslam Abdul Majeed to win the coveted title. Tanmay and Sonu were announced as the first and second runner-up, respectively.
Talking about her win, Ishita Vishwakarma told BollywoodLife.com, “When the names of the third and second runner-up were announced then my name was not there. In this case, the last fight was to be between me and Sahil Solanki. At that time, I had lost every hope. She is a playback singer and already has a tremendous fan following.” Ishita further added, “I was feeling 100 percent that Sahil would be the winner. As soon as my name was announced, I thought it was a joke.”
Apart from Ishita Vishwakarma musical career, the young girl is keen to study further. “I am in my 11th standard now pursuing commerce. Post my schooling, I plan to take up music. While my mother always wanted me to pursue music, my father wanted his child to become a doctor. Though I love music, I want to fulfill my father’s dreams also. I will do a Ph.D. in music so that he gets to see the ‘Doctor’ title added to my name,” concluded Ishita Vishwakarma.
The Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2018 grand finale also saw performances by Sunidhi Chauhan and Ankita Lokhande. Hosted by Aditya Narayan, the season was judged by Shekhar Ravjiani, Wajid Khan and Richa Sharma.
