Gottlieb came into prominence after winning American dance reality show “So You Think You Can Dance” and she made her bow in Bollywood with Remo D’Souza’s 3D dance movie “ABCD – Any Body Can Dance“.

I’ve fallen in love with India and the people out here. I came to India as a foreigner, but I’m staying in India as an Indian,

Lauren Gottlieb, 25, posted on Twitter.

Lauren, who showed her dancing prowess on “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6“, impressed the viewers when she gave a spell-binding classical performance in one of the episodes.

To come from a different country and be voted all the way to the finale just shows how much love and warmth the people of India have.

She is grateful to all her fans for letting her and partner Punit Pathak reach the finals, which were on Saturday where TV actress Drashti Dhami won the title.

Thank you so much for making me and Punit Pathak’s ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6‘ journey so beautiful and memorable. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Even though I am the runner up, I truly feel like I won the hearts of everyone in India and that to me means more than winning a trophy.

… Lauren Gottlieb said.
