MTV Roadies Xtreme aired its grand finale on August 5 and it was Kashish Thakur Pandir from Neha Dhupia’s gang who emerged as the winner of the popular reality show. The Haryana boy took home the winner’s trophy and a brand new car. After battling it out for months with the other Roadies contestants, Pandir, Nishkarsh Arora and Preeti Kuntal made it to top three of MTV Roadies season 15. The three finalists gave their best in the final task which combined puzzle-solving, wrestling and archery. In the end, it was the 24-year-old Kashish, who overcame all the odds and won the task.

Taking 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."

Interestingly,  the mixed martial arts (MMA) expert was initially in Prince Narula’s team and Neh Dhupia roped him in her team in an auction task.

"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," Kashish told the news agency.

Kashish’s victory was very special for Neha as it marked her second win in a row. MTV Roadies Rising was won by Shweta Mehta, who was also from her team.

Kashish wrote a long & heartfelt post on Instagram talking about his journey on MTV Roadies Extreme. He said that his journey was nothing short of a roller coaster ride and he had his own share of ups and downs.

What a journey it has been. To being the first one in a gang and then finally the last Man standing. My journey has nothing been short of a roller coaster ride. I've had my share of ups and downs, betrayals, drama, action and everything you'd want to see in a movie! I made friends that have stuck with me through thick and thin, have supported me throughout the journey and had my back when no one else did. To be able to have them perform the finale task for was everything that I had hoped for because I did not get the opportunity to perform any task with them on the show .I dedicate this post to my friends who made this day possible. @mehakdeep_official is the flagbearer of true friendship on Roadies Xtreme. He put himself on the line to stay true to his friends. His dedication to his friends is what people know him best for. A true friend indeed. @thesonujat was a lone warrior this year. The guy has always had my back. He gave his heart and soul in the finale task. Quite misunderstood, Sonu is actually a very intelligent man and a lot of our strategies were possible due to his smartness. @geetikasood_ , fondly known as Panda, was the heart of our tiny friends circle. She had no time for dirty politics or cheap mind games as she was always busy napping. She took a stand for me in every situation, performed like a lioness in the finale task even injuring herself in the process but never giving up even once. Her contribution was instrumental in creating that massive time difference between the final timings.! @shubhadanishtalaa was always in my alliance, be it the Nikhil-Prince or the Neha-Raftaar alliance. She was loyal to her gang but deep down valued friendship just as much. She may not have been a part of my tiny friends circle with mehak, geetika and Sonu, but she was a good friend to me, taking a stand for me when the entire camp went against me. I am so thankful to Roadies Xtreme that I could meet all these wonderful people who have gone to prove the bond strongest. To be continued. Happy friendship day...❤️???? ???? @rjdeigg
