The finale was further enhanced by the presence of the cast of Murder Mubarak – Sara Ali Khan, Vijay Verma, and Sanjay Kapoor, who joined the contestants on stage for a dance. The team from Sony Entertainment Television’s upcoming comedy show 'Madness Machayenge India Ko Hasayenge' – led by Madness Ki Malkin Huma Qureshi, host Harsh Gujral and comedian Inder Sahani were also part of this episode and elevated the entertainment quotient with their humour-filled sketches, witty remarks, and memorable moments, ensuring a laughter-filled experience for the audience.

Manisha Rani made a remarkable wildcard entry into Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, instantly winning the hearts of viewers. Her challenge on the show was to prove herself as a versatile dancer without any prior professional training. With her choreo-partner Ashutosh's supportive mentoring, Manisha transformed into one of the most graceful dancers on the 'Jhalak' stage. Throughout the season, Manisha delivered breath-taking performances ranging from Bollywood to hip-hop, and from classical to robotics. Beyond her dancing prowess, Manisha charmed everyone with her dynamic personality and sweet demeanour. She mesmerized Shahid Kapoor with her moves, leaving him wondering if he should take some dancing tips from her, she took the opportunity to give the ever-so-graceful Juhi Chawla a few tips on posing for the paparazzi, and she also left Nora Fatehi in awe of her belly dancing skills. Despite having entered the season midway, Manisha Rani walked away with her head held high as the winner of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa,' proving that hard work and dedication can truly make dreams come true. 

On her winning, Manisha Rani said, "This journey has been nothing short of a dream come true, and I owe it all to the love, support, and encouragement of the Judges and the audience. I knew this experience would change my life, and it truly has. As a wildcard entry, I had to work twice as hard to prove myself, and every moment has been filled with excitement and my growth as a dancer. I am grateful to my choreographer, Ashutosh, who has been very understanding and each week, he has pushed me to broaden my horizon and discover new facets of my dancing abilities. This win is not just mine; it belongs to everyone who believed in me and supported me throughout this journey."
