Mumbai, Feb 2 (TruthDive): Small screen actress Asha Negi won the sixth season of the dance reality show Nach Baliye with actor-boyfriend Rithvik Dhanjani on Saturday. The couple has won a trophy, over Rs 35 lakh as prize money, a trip to Australia and a Renault Duster SUV. The winning choreographers Vibhav and Bhavana were awarded Rs.5 lakh.
Asha told both of them were confident that they would win the show. There was never a moment when they lost the confidence or that they were over-confident. She said they did their best, gave it 100 percent and they knew it would pay them back.
The actress said that competing with Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary was difficult for them as they always had something new or different to perform.

Initially, the show started with 11 couples and the other couples who were challenging for the trophy included Vinod Thakur-Raksha Thakur, Ripudaman Handa-Shivangi Verma and Debina Bonnerjee-Gurmeet Choudhary.
The grand finale was a striking show with performances by all the contestants of the season in different groups.
Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who co-judged the show along with choreographer Terence Lewis and filmmaker Sajid Khan, performed a wonderful aerial act on `Ram chahe leela` from `Goliyon Ki Rasleela…Ram-Leela`, “Dhating naach” from `Phata Poster Nikhla Hero` and “Pani da rang” from the film `Vicky Donor`.
