After almost three months, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10 has found its winner in Gunjan Sinha. Social media star Faisal Shaikh and popular TV actor Rubina Dilaik were announced the first and second runners-up, respectively. Gunjan, who participated in the show with partner Tejas Verma and choreographer Sagar Bora took home the trophy and cash prize of Rs 20 lakh.
