The sixth season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa was won by Drashti Dhami and her dance partner Salman Yusuf Khan this Saturday, but on social media, the war between her and Lauren Gottlieb, who was first runner-up and considered to be her closest competitor, is still waging.

Both #VoteForLauren and #DrashtiShouldWinJDJ6 are trending on Twitter today, and fans are battling it out on Twitter about who was the deserved winner. The two hashtags were even trending in Pakistan.

Lauren supporters hold the belief that Lauren was a superior dancer, who lost out because Lauren was unable to get international voters to vote for her, since the rules of the game only allow for Indians to vote.

Drashti supporters also took to Twitter to support their favoured contestant, but they were much fewer in number.

The Madhubala fame actress won the title, while Lauren Gottlieb was the first-runner up and Sonali and Sumanth won the third place. Singer Shaan was among the four finalists.

After winning the show, the 28-year-old Drashti thanked everyone and said: “I want to thank everyone. My mom, who is not here right now, she is out of town…I love you mommy! I want to thank my friends, Salman’s friends…”

The show has been judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-filmmaker Remo D’Souza.

The show went on air 1 June with 12 celebrities that included Shweta Tiwari, Karanvir Bohra, Siddharth, Meghna Malik, Suresh Menon, Ekta Kaul, Aarti Chabaria, and Krishnamachari Srikkanth.  The show was judged by Karan Johar, Madhuri Dixit and Remo D’Souza. Shweta, Siddharth, Karan Patel, Karanvir, Mantra and Mukti came to support the finalists.
