The adrenaline pumping reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 has found its winner. The eight season that was packed with some daring tasks found its champion in Shantanu Maheshwari. The 26-year-old ‘Dil Dostii Dance’ actor has beat Hina Khan and Ravi Dubey to win the coveted title. The finale episode that was telecast today also saw host Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 4 cast joining the team of the reality show.
Kolkata boy Shantanu, who is also an exceptional dancer impressed all with his mind power, strength, and consistent performances. Time and again, the young actor performed well in all his tasks, and only in the finale week, that he got his first fear fanda. Shantanu was even christened as ‘Silent Killer’ by Rohit Shetty for his talent of doing every task with complete focus. Having his own way of shrugging off his nervousness, the actor was even chosen as the strongest participant by his co-contestants.
Shantanu, apart from a prize money, and a glamorous trophy, has also been awarded a Jeep Compass car.
From the time of the launch, Khatron Ke Khiladi 8, produced by Endemol topped the TRP chart. It kept a consistent place among the top three shows throughout its run. Though Nia Sharma managed to attain the ‘Ticket to Finale’, Shantanu got his place as a finalist through his sheer dedication and hard work. Apart from Shantanu and Nia, Hina Khan, Rithvik Dhanjani, Manveer Gurjar, Lopamudra Raut, Karan Wahi, Monica Dogra, Shibani Dandekar, Shiny Doshi were the contestants in the show.
