Despite their expertise, it will be their daredevilry and action feats that would help them get further in the show, which is set to premiere on Colors on July 2.
Talking to Indian Express, the Cirkus filmmaker had said that he and his team have often been asked if the stunts performed in the reality show are real. “Many ask me, ‘CGI kiya hai kya?’” he said, adding that he has had to explain to them that every action sequences are performed by the contestants themselves.
While in the previous seasons, the show is shot first and then the edited package is sent out to the channel, for this particular edition, the team will be going live on TV. Though this could pose a risk, Rohit said that in all the years he has hosted the show there was never a scary moment and the thanked his team for taking all necessary precautions. “Tasks are scary for contestants but my team works precisely to avoid any mishap,” he said.
