NESTLÉ NESFRUTA recently celebrated Pakistani talent with a grand, multidimensional TV show, NESTLÉ NESFRUTA FUNKAAR.

The grand finale of the show aired an exciting string of performances by young individuals who travelled from all corners of Pakistan to showcase their unique talent.

The best out of these acts was chosen to be a teenaged Hindu girl's performance on the sitar.

Hailing from Hyderabad, Ritika Dhanja, who was named the NESFRUTA FUNKAAR-E-AALA for 2018, has been learning and honing her craft under legendary classical sitarist, Ustad Raees Khan.

The 16-year-old won the grand title of the show by performing hypnotic sitar led musical pieces, one of which included a profound tribute to the guitar legend Aamir Zaki.

Here's a glimpse into it:
