ABU DHABI // Serge Ramahenintsoa will be able to dine out on his win in a worldwide Bollywood dance competition, but dining out with the Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif is no small boast either.

Mr Ramahenintsoa, a French resident, won the dream lunch date in Mumbai last weekend in the Etihad Airways Next Stop Bollywood dance competition.

More than 100 entrants uploaded their dance videos to a Facebook page where the public had a say in who took the honours. The page received more than 4,500 visitors from 70 countries.

"It was amazing to see so many talented people around the world share their passion for Bollywood dance through this competition," said Kaif, who is also an ambassador for Etihad.

Mr Ramahenintsoa also won US$5,000 (Dh18,362), two Pearl business-class tickets on Etihad Airways to Mumbai and five nights in a five-star hotel.

The second prize winner was Litty Wilson, who lives in Kuwait and won two Pearl business-class tickets from Etihad. Chaya Fernando, from Sri Lanka, came third and received two Coral economy-class tickets to any of Etihad's 67 destinations.

The winners, announced at Etihad's award ceremony last Friday in Mumbai, were selected based on votes from the public, Etihad Airways and Kaif.
