Arun is one of those rare cases where a wild card entrant has won the show. Not only did he win many hearts but also was consistent in his performances throughout. Arun emerged victorious in the finale task- Roadies Real Hero task which was the ultimate test of strength and courage. The ex-contestants cheered for the finalist and kept the excitement exceedingly high.
Says Arun, "Coming from a remote village called Nahoti near the LOC, with financial issues and lack of language skills, it was difficult for a boy like me to make it. But as they say, the one who has seen the difficult times, values victory more. Being rejected from the culling, was never a setback because of 2 reasons: A. The respect I earned after the culling itself was inexpressible and B. Because I crawled my way back into the game with even more vigor."

"Tasks was one thing I was forever confident about because I believed in my strength and that helped me win titles like those of the Task Monkey, the Beast or Bolt Lightning. Moreover, the biggest hand in my success has been of my gang leader, Raftaar sir. The epitome of humbleness, integrity and love, I was mesmerized being guided under him and can never forget those eyes that looked at me as his final hope. The journey was well-lived, with my friends and foes, but I conquered them all and I can't thank them enough. I believe that with a stubborn mind and a constantly improving skill set, you can conquer anything,” he concluded.
