Indian Idol 11 came to an end on Sunday as Sunny Hindustani from Bhatinda in Punjab beat four other finalists to take home the coveted trophy and cash prize. The talented singer, who floored judges and the audiences throughout the season, crooned to songs like Mere Rashke Qamar, Bhar Do Jholi Meri and Halka Halka Suroor. Apart from the trophy, Sunny also won a grand cash prize of Rs 25 lakh. The other four finalists who he gave tough competition to included Adriz Ghosh (Kolkata), Ridham Kalyan (Amritsar), Ankona Mukherjee (Kolkata) and Rohit Raut (Latur). The first runner-up was Rohit while Ankona was declared the second runner-up.

There was a whole lot in store for Sunny as he also won a car and a contract to sing for T-Series. In a heartfelt video, Sunny revealed that the smile on his mother's face after he won the trophy was heartwarming. Sunny gained a massive fan following over the last few months since the show began in October. 

Take a look at Sunny's post win video:

Post his win, Sunny told Indian Express, "I never thought of getting through the first round, leave alone winning the competition. I have come a long way and can’t believe that the journey has just started. From getting the opportunity to sing on such a big platform to winning the show is like all my dreams have come true."

Sunny was the stand out singer! A well deserved winner - a truly unique talent.

Sunny’s was a great inspirational story - a very gifted person, he was nevertheless limited in versatility. My personal favorite was Ridham Kalyan - a very soulful singer.

Ridham Kalyan...totally versatile!

Sunny was very screaming not soulful like Salman ali sunny is over hyped singer and winner rohit Ridham were very good..

Outstanding singing by Sunny, a rightful and fully justified win

Though the gained sympathy but he lacks versatility. Other singers like adriz and ridham were more deserving.

Sorry but I disagree, his hard work got him where he is. I think he win was well deserved.

Ridham,Ankona ,Rohit and Adriz were more qualified than Sunny. He was not versatile . But the judges were partial to him from the beginning.

This is not based on judges votes only. The public put him there. All contestants were good no doubt but the best man one at the end of the day.

I concur with this comment

Rydhum Kalyan was versatile, Ankhona had sweet voice but Sunny was gifted and different, he deserves the trophy.

Although all contestants were good enough to reach top 5, but I personally had been blown away by Ridham Kalyan's performances..almost each performance recieved a 'mausam badal diya'..hope Ridham gets better opportunities to show what the potential he has...

Sunny is a very talented singer.His selection as winner of Indian Idol is what whole India wanted.

All singers were good , but Sunny was outstanding , he has the charm in his voice and the elegance which he shows in his singing brings peace to heart. The rest were good and will soon see a prospering life . God bless you all

Sunny is very talented singer but not a vertasile...his voice just resembles like Shri Nusrat Fateh Ali kha ji..whereas Rohit and others where versatile.

Resembling nusrath Ali ji voice is god gift and people who come from humblebackground like him needs a chance and big achievement and audience love was with him ..well done sony

Sunny is a versatile singer. He adapted every song to his way of singing. A extremely well deserved win.
Unfortunately Rohit and Ridham can only sing as in the song made. Not versatile at all. Rohit would make it as an actor than singer. Poor him.

Better get ur brain checked.. versatility is not singing the songs of only one type of genre his voice is much better than sunny copying Nusrat Sahab is not called versatility he is know for singing only Nusrat sahabs song by Rohit and others sang all the songs in their very own voice n not copied the way they were go n listen to the original songs n the songs sang by them...

I think u explained the point to everyone.

Sunny didn't deserve to win at all. Just won cuz of sympathy. His voice was annoying at best. True winner was either Rohit or Ridham.

Quite a few have favoured Rythim Kalyan. Spare a thought for Ankhona guys. At 15 what a talent. She was the best. A winner for me

"Not trained singer"

He emulated Nusrath Sahab throughout the competition and won millions of fans.Now he is slated to become a playback singer with Tseries offering him contract to sing for their forthcoming movies.From hereon he need to develop his own identity in the highly competitive field.

A well deserved win of course

Well derved

Not a playback voice. He has voice of Nusratji, no doubt very good, but will that voice click as playback singer? I doubt. None of actor will like to have that voice on screen for himself. Might be good voice for backdrop of scenes!

He desreved for the title thnx sunny.as far as rohit is concern his voice was not good

Rohit Shyam Raut was the best and versatile singer. He was capable of singing songs from all genre. He was well deserving this award. Sunny sang only typical songs kawwali sort of. Indian idol judges were biased towards him from the begining due to his poor background and they wanted to prove that this show changes the lives of people. No doubt he is extremely talented singer but an idol should be the one who should be able to sing all types of songs. Was disappointed with the result last year also and same this year.

Sunny was outstanding.. he was so different and the best part was he had never learnt how to sing .. very well done

Well deserved win from the very beginning!!!!!

Sunny Hindustani, gifted talented, with excellent voice, was technically far superior than others. He has been consistently singing from his heart and touched a plethora of audience, worldwide public. In fact he enhanced the value of the show.

Although he had his limited comfort zone, a great deserved victory for a very soulful singer.

Over hyped !!! Stands no where near Salman Ali. Only sympathy made him win !!!

I completely agree with you

I completely agree with you

My favorite sunny Hindustani.. Very well deserveing candidate.

Well deserved victory.I became a big fan of his when I heard him sing at the audition.

Well sunny was good but rohit deserved to win

Sunny not a versatile singer. He won because of sympathy for his poor background. Rohit deserved to win.

The hell with those who don't like Sunny & his poor background. He is the winner and a very well deserved one. Sorry guys Salman & AR Rehaman and Amit Kumar did not ask for votes to select Sunny to sing for them. Bravo Sunny may you shine always with your unique talent!!!!!!

Ridham 100%
