In fact, Hrithik Roshan appreciated the dedication of all the contestants in an address to TOI:

"I am very inspired. This competition is not just about looks. This shows lots of characters. These people, while doing their jobs, took out time and disciplined themselves to reach this far. I think that is commendable. I think, if they can achieve this, they can achieve whatever they want in life" 

Rohit Khandelwal passed down his 'crown' to Menon after a tough competition from others at a star-studded event.

Here's hoping Vishnu Raj Menon will make us just as proud as his predecessor!
