Karishma Tanna has won the Rohit Shetty hosted reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi season 10. Karishma Tanna defeated Karan Patel and Dharmesh Yelande in the seasons finale to bag the winner’s trophy. Karishma talks about her win, the popular actress told Mumbai Mirror, “I have been in the film industry for a while now and the closest I ever came to winning is being adjudged first runners-up. Maybe God wanted me to win the ‘real’ reality show.” Talking about the celebration, she added, “Since I couldn’t call my friends to celebrate, my neighbours brought me cake and some amazing food.”
When asked whether there was any pressure in that period, to which she replied, “More than me, my mother was desperately waiting for the result, praying every day that I win. She was the one who pushed me, else I wouldn’t have done the show.” Speaking on stunts, Karishma said, “When I thought some task was doable, I failed at that. Everyone had their good days, but overall Dharmesh, Tejasswi (Prakash) and to some extent Karan, were very consistent.”

As I hold this trophy in my hand , I feel I am holding all the dreams I dared to dream❤️it feels like I am holding the dream of my mother. Coming from a simple conventional gujurati family it started with. She can’t do it . Why does she want to do it? Get an education, get a more secured job, get married,now who will marry her? It’s a tough world out there . It’s a mans world. How will she survive the competition.. she has no Godfather, no connections .. yes, I had none of those, but what I had and all young boys and girls who venture out of their safety zones to get to their goals have..they have the power to wake up and look beyond the doubts..the faith to look beyond the failure ..the blessings that come from the belief u see in the eyes of ur mother..your friends ur loved ones.. ur FANS I am proud bcz just like everyone else who is here to achieve their goals , I worked hard physically, mentally, technically.. I worked in letting myself believe that yes we all are trying and only 1 will win but the experience will make us stronger , better and together. When @itsrohitshetty sir announced my name, all I could feel is the love of my colleagues who rushed to me wit no bias but only love, the same love and support Wch I felt during every task. I could feel my mother smiling bcz she knows my internal battles, I could feel my father cheering me from above.. lookin at me with pride .. I feel only love and gratitude ❤️ To this milestone and many more to come🙏🙏🙏 Thanku @colorstv @voot @endemolshineind and everyone who prayed for me to reach here . Love you all ❤️🙏
