Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 Winner Punit Pathak On His Victory: "Nothing Comes Easy"
After 10 weeks of thrilling and emotional moments, COLORS Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 draws to a close with Punit Pathak being crowned as the ultimate Khiladi of the season. The build-up to the winning moment was as nail-biting as ever, with Khatron Ke Khiladi truly living up to its reputation as one of the most adventurous shows on Indian television.

In the nerve-wracking stunt during the grand finale, Punit Pathak’s determination and strong-headedness helped him rise as a winner over Aditya Narayan and Ridhima Pandit. Rohit Shetty had designed a complete Bollywood dhamakedaar finale stunt. The stunt was a combination of height, speed and dexterity. With a car, truck and a helicopter, all the three contestants were really geared up to perform the last stunt of the season. But Punit’s swiftness and accuracy, made him win this task, defeating Ridhima and Aditya.

Right from the beginning, he seemed to be one of the strongest contenders. He completed his tasks well on time, and never entered the elimination round. His competitive nature, clubbed with his outgoing and fun-loving personality, was a delight to watch. However, the highlight of his performance during the course of the season was when he selflessly performed a stunt for an injured Aditya Narayan even when he didn't have to. Aditya, who had sustained an eye injury during the course of the show, was in danger of getting into the elimination round because of the predicament that he was in. Not wanting his friend to suffer because of an injury, Punit went ahead and performed the stunt on his behalf. Not only that, the stunt was so good that he got the highest score for Aditya during that round. Punit even went ahead and did his stunt, once again highlighting his hunger to win the competition.

Talking about his victory, Punit said to a leading portal, “Nothing comes easy. For me, this win was due to sheer hard work, focus, determination and self belief. It feels great to be crowned as the ultimate winner of Khatron Ke Khiladi 9. Winning a show that directs its participants to face their fears and overcome them, does wonders to their confidence. I would like to thank Rohit sir, my fellow-participants for this amazing journey."

The finale of the show was indeed a grand one with the former host Akshay Kumar giving a live parkour demo to the participants. After his demo, the original Khiladi asked the participants to perform this heart-thumping stunt. The comical duo Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa repeated a previous act called ‘a fear, mind you’ where they kissed creepy crawlies, much to the amusement and delight of the other participants. The finale was also graced by the presence of the Rising Star expert panel i.e Neeti Mohan, Shankar Mahadevan and Diljit Dosanjh.  Being the most celebrated and awaited reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi will continue the legacy of delivering unmatched drama and action in seasons to come!
