“Akshay has been a great source of inspiration,” said Aarti, who endured weeks of gruelling tasks involving underwater stunts, fighting off creepy crawlies and jumping off dangerous heights during the contest.

“As I knew him even before the show, I was quite comfortable with him. He is a great host. He not only does his work well and to the best of his ability, but takes special interest in understanding his contestants’ strengths and weaknesses. He always encouraged us.

“He is very witty and has a great sense of humour and also great sense of timing,” she added.

Aarti and her partner Dhaval Thakur beat singer Mauli Dave and Dhiraj, after facing risky stunts in the grand finale.

“The journey has been a complete rollercoaster ride. I have been using this word ‘mindblowing’ quite often, but now after winning the title I understood the real meaning of it. The journey of Khatron Ke Khiladi has been mindblowing,” explained Aarti.

“I have learnt so much. Now I feel much more confident. Initially, I had a lot of fears whether it is height, water, fire or creepy crawlies, but now I have overcome so many fears,” she added.

The actress, who is currently enjoying her win, promises to return to films.

“I have been enjoying my time and trying to overcome the small injuries. But you will soon see me in films. I have a few projects coming up. I might do all kinds of different things like anchoring and dancing, but acting is my passion.”
