The ace footballer beat Gauhar Khan in the finale – which will be televised on May 31 – and thereby went on to become the first male winner of the show. Gauhar, who reportedly was the favourite among judges and was their first choice, lost out to Baichung as the latter received more votes from across the country.

Baichung was known for foot movements on the football playground but from now on he has some more to add to the repertoire of his foot movements.

Baichung Bhutia is the pride of Indian football. Baichung came into national reckoning with his sterling performance in 1992 with Subroto Cup school tournament. In the next three years, Baichung made his international debut with the Nehru Cup and by the year 1999, he became the first Indian to play professional football in England.
