After months of grueling tasks and fights, MTV Roadies Xtreme announced its winner on August 5, 2018. Haryana boy Kashish Thakur was titled as the winner, who took home a brand new car as the trophy. But the cross-fit trainer says the journey to victory wasn't easy and he was disappointed when the teams swapped and he ended up being in Neha Dhupia's team. But, he revealed in an interview with Indian Express that he won the show for his mentor Neha Dhupia.
Talking about his victory, Kashish told IANS, "I have no words to explain my feelings. Roadies Xtreme was and will remain my most cherished experience. The fact that I was on the journey was such a big achievement in itself and winning the coveted title was icing on the cake."
"I had completed half of the journey with Prince Narula and our bond had strengthened to such an extent that it could not be described in words. To be shuffled and sent to a rival gang was not something that I was expecting. It was extremely hard for me to win their trust but I am thankful to Neha ma'am for trusting me in the process," he said while talking about being disappointed with the shuffle.
But, he respects his mentor Neha a lot, and also thanked her for being by his side when he was contesting on the show. Kashish said, "I had my moments of glory and I had an equal share of moments of despair. Ma'am is a very supportive gang leader and she has always let me take decisions for the gang. And I emerged as the title holder this year."
Kashish Thakur is originally from Haryana and is trained in martial arts. He impressed the judges during the auditions by showing off his athleticism. He has completed his degree in Civil Engineering and also holds a masters degree from the Punjab Technical University.
