Like last year in Season 1, BRAVURA Young Season 2 also saw equal and enthusiastic participation of kids with Down Syndrome, who managed to amaze the audience and jury alike thus breaking many myths and beliefs. Aaradhya Giri, Falak, Shubro, Saideep, Shivansh, Jeesha Kaul, Manas Mehra, and Vihaan Vyas walked the ramp like a superstar among the cheer and applause from the audience.
