Talking about his best moment from the show Akash said, “The most memorable moment from the show for me would be the auditions round when I was very nervous but Parineeti ma’am motivated me and she called me her brother and it was the biggest moment of my life. I will cherish this for my lifetime. I am extremely happy that I could make her proud by winning the show. She told me that I will be her brother for a lifetime. She gifted me a jacket, and shoes during the show and also tied Rakhi. I gifted her a sari during the show because she had told me once you start earning you would also give something to me, so I bought a sari for her and she was extremely happy. She has also made me promise to take her out to a restaurant.”

When asked how he plans to utilize the winning amount, Akash shared, “I would like to use the winning amount to build a house for my parents. We don’t have a house of our own in our village so first I would make a house for my parents.”
