Mumbai: "Balika Vadhu" star Sidharth Shukla has emerged as the winner of celebrity stunt-based show "Khatron Ke Khiladi' Kabhi Peeda Kabhi Keeda", hosted by Arjun Kapoor.
Sidharth beat co-finalists Sana Saeed and Mukti Mohan to bag the title on the Colors show and walk away with Rs 25 lakh of prize money along with a swanky new Tata Tiago car.
The 35-year-old actor displayed tremendous mental and physical strength on the show and be it injuries, untimely eliminations or stunts that challenged his agility, Sidharth always remained at the top of his game.
The finale stunt saw Sidharth scale different elements including water, air and fire in a race against time.
"'Khatron Ke Khiladi' was an experiment for me to fight situations that could have had the slightest potential to scare me.
"As I take this trophy home, my mission is accomplished. I am glad that I managed to strive through it all injuries, quarrels, and stunts involving a combination of speed, thrill and creepy crawlies," Sidharth said in a statement here.
Debutant host Arjun said, "What started as an uphill trek into the unknown has, for me, become a journey of all-round discovery. From emotional upheavals as contestants faced their deepest fears to pure determination, Khatron Ke Khiladi has been a beautiful experience."
The grand finale weekend was an entertainment extravaganza, as the episode brought together the contestants' friends from the industry including Mouni Roy, Karishma Tanna, Arjun Bijlani, Surbhi Jyoti, Radhika Madan and Rishabh Sinha as they dared to face their fears and achieve what their buddies have sailed through.
Paving the way for the winner announcement was Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun's "Ki & Ka" co-star, who partook in the fun and excitement.
Be it interacting with Arjun or facing her own fear of cockroaches, Kareena Kapoor-Khan raised the glamour quotient manifold making the Grand Finale truly memorable.
They were joined by comedienne Bharti Singh.
