Rohit Shetty is back to host another daring new season of Khatron Ke Khiladi. Shetty, who is currently filming for the show in Cape Town, South Africa, recently opened up about the reality series.
In conversation with PTI, the host talked about the immense popularity of the show, especially among the youth. Shetty revealed how the makers tried to cater to the young audiences of the show by designing the kind of stunts which would give them a ‘high’. The host also spoke of how ‘clean’ the show was, and there would be no banter happening without reason.
Shetty said that care was taken to ensure that the stunts did not become repetitive. Although the show had different versions all over the globe, Shetty said the love it got from India was ‘unimaginable’. He credits the team behind the series for making that happen. “It is like an ensemble film every Saturday and Sunday where you get action, drama and comedy," he said.
The upcoming twelfth season will mark Shetty’s seventh stint as host. He recalled his first time hosting, and how he had been ‘shocked’ seeing the high ratings the show gathered. He also revealed that the reality show was one of his ‘favourites’ and it presented new challenges for him every day. Shetty said he ‘manifested’ becoming the host of the show when he’d seen Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra host it.
Khatron Ke Khiladi 12 will premiere on July 2. The series can be watched on Colors TV and can be streamed on Voot.
