Mumbai, March 9 (IANS) It couldn't have been a better day for their victory - Raagini Makkar and her troupe Naadyog picked the "India's Got Talent 5" trophy here on International Women's Day Saturday.

Raagini is a housewife and a kathak dance teacher and she runs her family institute called Naadyog, which is 25 years old and has 360 students. The kathak group is unique due to its ability to show different forms and formations involving the classical dance.

As winners of the talent-based reality show, the group, which has women aged 18-32, has been awarded Rs.50 lakh, a brand new car and the trophy.

The other finalists for the finale were 13-year-old musical talent Saei Jamshed, dance group Beat Breakers and Subhreet Kaur, 25, who dances despite one amputated leg.

The finale was graced by "Gulaab Gang" stars Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla, while megastar Amitabh Bachchan added more star power to the show.

He came to promote his upcoming movie "Bhootnath Returns". The 10 finalists of the season paid a special tribute to the iconic actor by singing and dancing on some of his best hits. He even shook a leg with the contestants.

"India's Got Talent" is the Indian franchise of the hugely successful "Got Talent" series.

The fifth season of the show went on air January 11, 2014 with Kirron Kher, Malaika Arora Khan and Karan Johar as its judges. Video jockey Andy and radio jockey Mantra were hosts of the show initially, but later comedian Bharti Singh replaced Mantra.

One highlight of the fifth season was seven-year-old boy Akshat Singh, a huge Salman Khan fan, who is good at B-Boying, Hip-Hop, contemporary and Bollywood styles of dancing.

He became a rage following his performance on "India's Got Talent", and he was also invited as a guest on "The Ellen DeGenres Show" in Los Angeles.
