The 41-year-old 'Dil Dhadakne Do' actor hosted the show where participants were challenged to showcase their skills on various tasks.
"Farhan is a fantastic human being. He was very encouraging throughout the show and constantly talked to us about our performances, cautioned us for the danger regarding the stunts and complimented us after the act," Rithvik told PTI.
Rithvik beat Gurmeet Choudhary, Gauahar Khan and Madhurima Tuli in the finals to bag the trophy of the inaugural season of the Zee TV show.
The 27-year-old "Pavitra Rishta" actor says his win was a surprise for him as at "no point" he thought he would make it till the end.
"At no point I thought I will win this. For me, performing on the show was beyond winning or losing. Each and every act was a learning process where I gave my 100 percent.
"After a couple of days, people might forget the show, or the winner but never the act. It was never about the destination but the journey."
Rithvik, however, feels there was no competition among the contestants as everybody on the show was an achiever.
"There was no competition per say. Everybody on the show is an achiever. They all wanted to give their best and had the hunger to do well."
The actor now wants to follow the footsteps of his TV industry friends and venture into the big screen soon.
"I hope to come in movies soon... I will definitely be there to do great work and hope to leave a mark."
