The actress Aarti Chhabria, who recently won the show ‘Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi’ said that the host of the show Akshay Kumar was source of her inspiration.
She also said that working with Akshay previously in the movie "Awara Paagal Deewana" made things easy for her.
"Akshay has been a great source of inspiration. As I knew him even before the show, so I was quiet 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," said Aarti.
"There was a time when I was very afraid of doing one of the stunts and Akshay came to me and said, 'Ye ladki haar maanane vaalo mein se nahin hai' (This girl never gives up). "After listening to such words from none other than Akshay Kumar, anybody would try to give her or his best. This is just one of the incidents, he gave such boosters all through the show to everybody. He is very witty and has a great sense of humour and also great sense of timing," she added.
The actress and her partner Dhavak Thakur defeated Mauli Dave and Dhiraj in the finale. The actress had been previously eliminated from the show but had made a come back as wild card entry.
Talking about the journey she said, “The journey has been a complete rollercoaster ride. I have been using this word 'mindblowing' quiet often, but now after winning the title I understood the real meaning of it. The journey of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' has been mindblowing. I have learnt so much.”
