The sixth season of Maanada Mayilada, that saw competitive pairs of dancers contesting for the title for the last eight months, came to a colourful culmination on Monday. The pair, Sathya- Monica was announced winners, as elected by the public through votes, and actor Dhanush presented them the keys of villas in Puducherry — the title prize, at the Chennai Trade Centre, Nandambakkam Trade Centre. Their choreographer, Prem, was also given a cheque of Rs 1 lakh.

Asif and Bhavana emerged runners up and were given a cheque of Rs 5 lakh. Karthik and Soundarya secured the third prize – Rs 1 lakh, while Girsh and Sunitha were left with the fourth place. Actor Dhanush said that he has been watching Maanada Mayilada, all these years.

“During the initial seasons, I had a superiority complex, that I could perform better than the contestants. After the fourth season, my ego turned upside down and now I wonder if I too, can perform like the participants,” he said. He also praised Kala, director of the show, for its success.

All four finalists and semifinalist couples staged a spectacular performance, before the prize distribution ceremony. Maanada Mayilada crew also honoured Dhanush as he won the National Award for Aadukalam.

He cut a huge cake as part of the celebrations.
