Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded winner Faisal Khan said that Shah Rukh Khan is his idol.

Faisal won the show after beating celebrities like Shamita Shetty, Mohit Malik and Sanaya Irani. He won a cash prize of Rs 30 lakhs and a car.

"Shah Rukh sir is my idol. From being a normal boy, who started his career with TV, to becoming the King of Bollywood, he has proved that a normal person can reach the peak of success with hard work and sincerity. I shook a leg with him once but if I get a chance I would like to dance with him on Chaiyya Chaiyya and Bas Itna Sa Khawaab Hai," Faisal told PTI.

Faisal shot to fame after winning the show Dance India Dance Li'l Masters in 2012. He became equally popular for his role in the television show Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap, in which he played the young Maharana Pratap.

"Winning two dance reality shows is a big thing. The fact that I am the first professional dancer to win Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa gives me immense pleasure. My favourite performance of the season was on the song Main Hoon Hero Tera," he said.

Though he was competing with many celebrities, the dancer said that he always considered himself as his toughest challenge.

"My biggest competition was myself. In every performance I was trying to outdo my previous act," said Faisal.

Faisal said that he wants to learn music as well.

"I love dancing and acting both. I want to learn music now and become a perfect package. I find playing guitar very cool," he added.

Alia Bhatt also attended the show to promote her upcoming film Shaandaar, co-starring Shahid.
