‘The greater the obstacle, the greater the victory’, was the mantra for the Khiladis this season of Khatron Ke Khiladi – Darr Ka Blockbuster Returns. Facing every fear and hurdle with more zest and enthusiasm, they embarked on the journey to conquer their phobias from the very first day on the show. But in the end there could be only one winner, one ultimate Khiladi that emerges as victor of the season and surpassing the intense competition from the rest and, Ashish Chaudhary proved to be the best among the rest!
The journey this season has by far been the most adventurous and demanding, with stunt maestro Rohit Shetty upping the ante of the stunts and the Khiladis putting in maximum effort to prove their mettle at every step of this eventful expedition. Just as spoils of the war go to the victor, Ashish Chaudhary won the hefty prize amount of Rs.25 Lakh along with the ‘New Generation Mahindra Scorpio’ car by marginally beating Chang in the final stunt of the show.
Exhibiting the uninhibited mettle of the ultimate Khiladi, Ashish Chaudhary pushed beyond his own personal limits, defeating not only competition but also the task-related obstacles which can strike fear into the hearts of many. From tackling crocodiles to taming lions, jumping off choppers to free falling atop buildings, from deep diving into the ocean to walking through flaming infernos –Ashish Chaudhary did them all and in the true spirit of sportsmanship and daring. Ever since he embarked on this adventurous journey he never looked back once, despite competition getting fiercer and daunting as the show progressed.
Commenting on his invigorating journey and winning the coveted prize, Ashish Chaudhary says, “After some rash decisions earlier in my career, I’ve reached a stage where I feel that work you ‘enjoy’ is work you do best. Before you chase a goal or a win, I feel you must see to it that you thoroughly enjoy the road that leads to it. To be happy, to be light hearted & to make great friends is the way I choose to live, and those are the precise reasons why I chose to do KKK. And just like all my endeavours in life, I chose to do it to the best of my ability. What came after that, the win, is just a perk. Even if I didn’t win, this has been the best decision of my life. Losses and wins come n go, what stays are happy memories and happy relationships. Being courageous, being kind and being happy can guide everyone, through anything.”
