Mithu competed for the title with four other contestants, namely, Shraddha Shah (Surat), Phulwa Khamkar (Mumbai) (Maharashtra), Cecille Rodrigues (Goa), Zoya Khan (Dehradun). She received the trophy from actress Sonakshi Sinha and thanked actor Mithun Chakraborty, the show's 'grandmaster', for giving her a chance to come on the show.

"Main Mithun da ka shukriya ada karna chahti hun jo mujhe yahan le kar aaye aur mujhe yahaan perform karne ka mauka diya (I want to thank Mithun-da for bringing me on this stage and giving me a chance to perform)," Mithu said after being adjudged the winner of the show based on audience voting.

The 34-year-old mother of two, who runs a small classical dance school in Kolkata, is on cloud nine after winning the Zee TV's talent hunt show.
    
"I am extremely happy as I did not expect to win the show. Now that I have won, I think my childhood dream of choreographing a dance for my favourite actor Salman Khan will be fulfilled. I will work hard now and soon make my dream come true," Mithu said.
    
Being a housewife, Mithu says it was not a tough call for her to participate in the show because her husband supported her.
    
"I give all the credit to my husband, who encouraged and supported me in every step. I was not supposed to participate in the show but he asked me to do it. I would like to celebrate my win with him and my kids. I would like to cook fish and mutton for them as it's been long time I haven't cooked for them," said the trained Bharatnatyam dancer.

Mithu has won a cash price of Rs 10 lakhs. "With the cash price, I will make my dance school big. I will donate some money to orphanage and old-age homes. I would also buy a surprise gift for my husband," she added.
