In a spectacular grand finale for the reality show, the amazing instrument player took home the prize money of Rs. 50 lakh and Maruti Suzuki Celerio.
Suleiman was competing with Papai & Antra, Akash & Atharva, Nitish & Group, and Trishna to win the competition. He chose AR Rahman’s ‘Taal Se Taal Mila’ for the final performance which got him the perfect score of 30 and a standing ovation from judges and the audience.
After successfully reaching the 20th episode of India’s Got Talent, Suleiman fulfilled his father’s dream. His highest praise came from Salman Khan when he performed in the Semi finals of the competition. The Sultan star had said, “Jo Sonu Nigam ne gaaya hai, usse better bajaya hai aapne. Aapne gaana nahi bajaya hai, aapne Sonu Nigam ko bajaaya hai.”
Judges Kirron Kher, Malaika Arora Khan and the hosts Bharti Singh and Sidharth Shukla performed at the finale to increase the glam quotient
