Informed a source associated with IGT, “Arjun is affable and has a good sense of humour. These are the qualities we were looking for in the host for our show. He has a natural flair for connecting with the participants.”
Arjun remained unavailable for comment.
In a previous interview with BT after he emerged as the winner of Khatron Ke Khiladi, he had said, “It feels amazing. Itne shock khaaye hain maine aur itni mehnat ki hai show par. During the finale stunt, I kept telling myself, ‘This is it. You have reached this far and now it’s a do-or-die situation. Just go and give it your all’. That’s exactly what I did… I gave the show my all.”
He had added, “Winning or losing really didn’t matter once I was in the finale. Of course, winning the trophy is like the icing on the cake, but what I am taking back home is a great experience, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I got and I am glad that I was there till the finale because of which I ended up doing the maximum number of stunts. The finale stunt was like the climax of a film.”
