On Sunday, 3 November, celebrity couple Yuvika Chaudhary and Prince Narula beat 13 other teams to win the trophy for dance reality show Nach Baliye 9. Anita Hassanandani and Rohit Reddy were the first runner-ups, followed by Vishal Aditya Singh and Madhurima Tuli. Prince has now become the only person on Indian television to win all the reality shows that he has participated in including Roadies X2, Splitsvilla 8 and Bigg Boss 9.
The couple was also all praises for the Nach Baliye judges, Raveena Tandon and Ahmed Khan. While some contestants reportedly had issues with their judging styles, Yuvika and Prince said they were motivating, guiding and fair. “We were huge fans of Raveena Tandon before, but we fell more in love with her after the show,” Prince said while speaking to Mumbai Mirror. He also added, “If anyone had complaints, it’s their problem.”
What will they do with the prize money? Prince says that he donates a part of all his winnings to NGOs for underprivileged kids. He revealed to the publication,
“Apart from that, we are going to use it to enjoy ourselves with a vacation in London after a family trip to Chandigarh, and then a trip to Switzerland that we won on the show,”Prince Narula, Winner - Nach Baliye 9
