The popular reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 is coming to an end tonight. Yes the show has been ruling the TRP charts courtesy the dare devil stunts that our favourite contestants are undertaking every episode to inch closer to the winning title. And now after a ten-week long successful run, the show is coming to a close–an epic one that too. The charming dancer, choreographer, actor Shantanu Maheshwari has been declared as the winner of the show. Since the beginning of the show itself he had been a promising contestant. However, there had been a buzz doing the rounds, for the longest time, that Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame actress Hina Khan would go on to become the winner of the show.Now, it’s been confirmed that the Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 winner is none other than Shantanu.

We’re sure that fans of the actor must be rejoicing hearing the news. After fighting with their fears on the show for several weeks, the three contestants who had reached the final round were Shantanu, Hina and Ravi Dubey. Like every time, even this season was exciting with some unique task which looked simple but wasn’t so. Rohit Shetty, who hosted the show after two long years, had pinned his hopes on wrestler Geeta Phogat and Big Boss 10 winner, Manveer Gurjar, who he had thought were tough competition. However, both of them got eliminated from the show and didn’t make it to the final round.

The show opened with 12 contestants–Asia’s third sexiest woman Nia Sharma, Hina, Manveer, wrestling champion Geeta Phogat, Lopamudra Raut, Ritwik Dhanjiani, and Karan Wahi among others. At the beginning of this season, Shetty said that this time the show “has the best ever set of celebrity contestants.” And now having reached the end of the show we couldn’t agree more. This season was immensely loved by small screen audience. Karan Wahi and Rithvik Dhanjani’s antics, Hina’s songs, did grab eyeballs.

While yesterday’s episode had the Bhoomi father-daughter duo, Sanjay Dutt and Aditi Rao Hydari cheering the team on, today’s finale episode will get even more exciting with the ‘Golmaal 4’ team joining the contestants and egging them on in the final round. Do stay tuned to this space as we keep you updated with the written update of the show tonight.
