The exhilarating grand finale episode of MTV Roadies Xtreme was aired on Sunday. The final task tested the strength, intelligence and confidence of the contestants. Neha Dhupia’s gang member Kashish Thakur Pundir and Prince Narula’s gang members Nishkarsh Arora and Preeti Kuntal fought the final battle. And Kashish managed to win the task taking home the winner’s title and a brand new car.

The task required the contestants to first solve a difficult puzzle. The next stage required them to showcase their archery skills. In the last round, they had to wrestle their way out to reach the target.

Ex-Roadies also had a chance to give a disadvantage to any one of the contestants. Nishkarsh was given the penalty after garnering maximum votes. He had to carry a heavy weight iron ball while performing the task. This prevented him from performing the task well. While Kashish and Preeti did not manage to solve the puzzle, Kashish’s archery skills helped him go ahead in the final task.

The 24-year-old MMA expert was overjoyed at winning the task. And more than him, his gang leader Neha Dhupia couldn’t hold back her emotions. Kashish, who was initially in Prince’s gang, was roped in by Neha in a mid-season contestant auction. This is Neha’s second win in a row, after Shweta took home the title last year.

Expressing joy on her gang member winning the season, Neha Dhupia, said, “My journey this season without a doubt has been absolutely extreme. Lots has happened from living in a tent to going to all these crazy terrains to doing all the stunts as a gang leader but nevertheless it’s been very exciting. One always waits for this opportunity to be a part of the Roadies journey. It’s been tough. I’m not going to lie. But it’s great when at the end of it, you taste victory because that is sweet. It’s really amazing to beat the boys two years in a row. Kashish was a gamble. I put all my money on him half way through the season and I’m glad it has paid off because no matter what we do as gang leaders, it is our gang members who perform under all the pressure. Kashish definitely did not let himself down or let me down. Of course, I fought many a times for him and for my gang but at the end of the day, it’s about the gang member and Kashish deserves every bit of it.”
