About 200 actors were in the fray for the crown, but Rajeev defeated all of them by a huge margin in the popularity chart.
Khandelwal was overwhelmed when the Telly Buzz team gave him the news.
Talking exclusively to our reporter Barnali, an emotional Rajeev said, ‘I would actually say that more than me it’s got to do with them. The victory is not mine but everyone who thinks that I am good. If you ask me personally I see no reason to win any of these contests. Maybe the only thing that sets me apart from others is that I very strongly believe in myself. I work for my own creative satisfaction and will do so as long as I can afford to. And being liked by people while you are following your dreams is like a bonus…nothing can be better than that. To be voted as the favourite actor of the people, along with huge feeling of satisfaction it also adds so much of responsibility. Because every time I get myself in such a situation to me it translates itself straightaway into expectations and responsibility that I carry on my shoulders. Not that it bogs me down. It kind of keeps me on my feet. The quest to attain a better standard is always on. But by the end of the day I get a very peaceful sleep knowing people are very kind to me.’
We congratulate the top three winners in both categories and wish them all the best.
