“It was a delight to be a part of this show. Remo Sir and STAR Plus did not just give me a platform, they gave me the opportunity to go out in the real world and live the life I did not even know. Winning this show was a very big surprise. I did not know so many people out there have been supporting me. Most importantly, Punit Sir has supported me throughout and I dedicate my win to him. In addition, Shakti ma’am & Dharmesh sir gave me constant motivation. Entire team behind Dance Plus has given me their unreserved support through their comments that only inspired me to work harder and win the love of so many fans. I dedicate my win to my mom, Punit sir and the Dance plus family. Without them, this would not have been possible," said Sherpa after his win, according to The Indian Express.

Also, Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez appeared as special guests in the season finale of the reality show. The Indian Express reports that the three stars promoted their upcoming film, David Dhawan's comedy Judwaa 2 by shaking a leg on the hit songs of the film.
