MUMBAI, February 24, 2015 — A month-long intensive audition and inspiring live performances culminated with the finale of KidZania Zuperstars 2015 on February 22, 2015, with KidZania Mumbai crowning Diya Anam the winner, who won the grand prize of a family trip to KidZania Kuala Lumpur. Vishesh Jain, Saanjh Aggarwal, Ayesha Khemka, Trisha Khanna and Sheena Ghadvi were adjudged runners-up.
The grand finale held at KidZania Mumbai featured an evening of excellent performances by the finalists who were judged by eminent personalities from the music and dance fraternity, including RJ Sucharita Tyagi from Radio City, Amjad and Nadeem, the Bollywood music duo, and Aneesha Dalal from Shiamak Davar Dance Company.
This year’s talent hunt saw over 3,000 entries by kids, aged between 4 to 16 years, showcasing their creativity through singing, dancing, acrobats, playing music, acting, stand-up comedy, sketching and more. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) we invited kids from various NGOs and the audition witnessed participation of 18 kids from the Teach India NGO who also made it to the semi-finals.
Speaking on the occasion, Viraj Jit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer, KidZania India, said, “KidZania believes that every child has at least one innate talent and it is important to support and encourage them at a young age to help build their self-confidence. The response to KidZania Zuperstar 2015 has been overwhelming and we have found the cultural ambassadors for KidZania Mumbai. We are proud that we were able to provide an opportunity to kids from NGOs, making this platform special and accessible to everyone.”
