Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) On a stage made in the image of the outer space with a cut-out of the moon in the background, Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan crowned 13-year-old Aishwarya Majmudar as the first “Amul Star Voice of India Chhote Ustad” here late evening Saturday. Amitabh, who came to promote his upcoming film “Bhootnath”, walked onto the stage in a studio here and announced the winner after a power-packed welcome performance by the eliminated contestants of the show.

The Ahmedabad-based girl, who was fondly referred to as ‘Style Ben Aishwarya’ for her high style quotient, triumphed over 14-year-old Anvesha Dattagupta from Kolkata.

Playback singer Kunal Ganjawala, who was among the judging panel of the TV show, told IANS: “Our duty was to bring the right contestants to fight it out at the finale and I am happy we were able to do so. It was a neck-to-neck competition and the results entirely depended on public voting.

“I think both contestants were equally good and deserving and, believe me, unlike most other reality shows, both these girls will be seen and talked about for a long time to come.”

The entire show saw a series of livewire performances by the two contenders, with fillers by the eliminated contestants, host Abhaas Joshi, playback singers Shaan and Ganjawala, and also song-based reality show winners Ishmeet Singh, Abhijeet Sawant, Rahul Vaidya and Himani Kapoor.

For the fist time on television, the young girls provided live playback to Bollywood actors Malaika Arora Khan and Isha Koppikar.
