Dance-based reality show 'Nach Baliye' ended on a controversial note in Mumbai, as family and friends of the loser pair cried foul play.

The runner-up paid of item girl Rakhi Sawant and Abhishek Awasthy walked out. The controversy centred round the rules which depended on fans' votes which could be mobilised.

Months of hard practice finally paid off as actors Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Sheikh were declared as the winners of 'Nach Baliye-3'.

In a neck-to-neck battle, Aamir and Sanjeeda danced their way to victory outshining the pair of Rakhi and her beau Abhishek.

Aamir said: "I wasn't going to participate in Nach Baliye as I am not a dancer and Nach Baliye is a dance competition. Reaching this place from scratch is like a dream come true. I always told Sanjeeda that if she gets a good partner she will win Nach Baliye for sure."

Aamir-Sanjeeda have been extremely popular and it was their fans' votes that helped the couple clinch the title.

Hari Awasthy, elder brother of Abhishek Awasthy, said: "It is a game in which one losses and one wins. Amir Ali and Sanjeeda have won this contest as their performance has been appreciated and whole country has voted for them."

Bollywood hunk Salman Khan declared the winners. The judges included choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant, Director David Dhawan and actress Isha Koppikar.

The winning pair of Aamir and Sanjeeda walked away with the grand prize of Rs 20 lakh and a car autographed by all the pairs and celebrity guests on the show. (ANI)
