Television artiste Hussain and his wife Tina took home Rs.2 million in prize money after winning the mega finale of STAR One's dance contest "Nach Baliye 2".

The couple won by 400,000 votes Monday night, beating runners-up Gauri and Yash Tonk. Last year's winners Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar gave away the awards.

"I would like to thank STAR One for such a lovely wedding gift," said Tina, who will celebrate her first wedding anniversary Thursday.

"We are here because of (choreographers) Harshad and Vithal. I must thank them for this trophy. Everything fades out with time but memories live with us forever and I will always cherish and relish the lovely memories of 'Nach Baliye'," said Hussain.

Hussain and Tina's choreographers were awarded Rs.1 million.

"We took the criticism in the right spirit and that's why we are here. We thank everybody backstage for positive feedback," Hussain said.

Both finalist pairs - Gauri-Yash and Tina-Hussain - danced to hit numbers like "Is kaal kaal mein", "Jhoom jhoom jhoom ba ba", "Khallas" and "Khai ke paan Banaras wala".

In addition to the main trophy, Tenaaz and Bakhtiyaar were declared the most 'Damdaar' (explosive) couple, Narayani and Gaurav got the title of 'Mazedaar' (fun) and Ketaki and Rasik Dave received the best 'Joridaar' (coupledom) titles for their performances.

The mega final, hosted by Shabbir and Sangeeta Ghosh, also saw sizzling performances by all the eight eliminated couples. The show was also livened up by Shabbir and Rajeev Paul's 'Munnabhai-Circuit' act.

Malaika Arora Khan's performance to the hit song from "Don", "Ye mera dil", added spice to the proceedings. She dedicated her performance to Hindi cinema's dancing queen Helen, saying: "Helen aunty is an ultimate screen goddess for me and this is my tribute to her."

Saroj Khan enthralled the audiences too by dancing on "Mann saat smaundar dol gaya" from "Chameli". Participating choreographers also shook a leg to the title track of "Nach Baliye".

The second season of "Nach Baliye 2" went on air Sep 25. The sequel started with 10 celebrity couples as participants and well-known choreographer Saroj Khan, model-turned VJ Malaika and director Kunal Kohli as judges.

Apart from the finalists, the other eight couples who participated in the second season of "Nach Baliye" were - Hiten Tejwani-Gauri Pradhan, Narayani Shastri-Gaurav Chopra, Manav Gohil-Shweta Kawatra, Shweta Tiwari-Raja, Ketaki-Rasik Dave, Gurdip-Arjun Punj, Keerti-Sharad Kelkar and Tanaaz-Bakhtyaar Irani.
