Indian Idol 11 is amongst the most loved singing reality television shows in India. In this season, the audience witnessed a slew of commendable performers, who made the competition tougher with every passing episode. The top five contestants in the Indian Idol 11 finale were Sunny Hindustani, Rohit Raut, Adriz Ghosh, Ankona Mukherjee and Ridham Kalyan. The five singers set the stage on fire with their soothing and soulful performances. In the end, Aditya Narayan declared Sunny Hindustani as the Indian Idol 11 winner that sparked a happy and yet emotional aura on the stage.
Sunny Hindustani, hailing from a small town in Bathinda, had a very inspirational story to tell.

In a clip that was played on the Indian Idol 11 finale day, Sunny's mother was also seen borrowing rice grains to fulfil their meals.
Aditya Narayan, in the show, declared that Sunny would now change the whole scenario and also take his mother to see the world. Sunny Hindustani's win has taken social media by storm. Fans in huge numbers are sending in wishes, thus calling Sunny Hindsutani's win 'deserving'. Take a look at what fans have to say.

Thank you #IndianIdol for bringing us the likes of #SunnyHindustani, young man who supported his poor Sansi family by polishing shoes in small town of Bathinda. There must be countless more such talented youngsters whose talent doesn't find any platform.— MadhuPurnima Kishwar (@madhukishwar) February 23, 2020
