Rohit Shetty launched the eighth season of the reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ with a bang and introduced the participants in style.
Staying true to the theme of daredevilry, the filmmaker too performed a few stunts as a part of his entry on the stage. When he injured himself in the process, he took it in his stride and said, “If I can do this to me, just imagine what I can do with you contestants.
“Introducing the celebrity contestants from the fields of television and sports, Rohit welcomed wrestler Geeta Phogat, ‘Bigg Boss 10’ winner Manveer Gurjar, Rithvik Dhanjani, Lopamudra Raut, ruling TV queens Nia Sharma and Hina Khan.Rohit was also probed about his upcoming Diwali release ‘Gomaal Again’.
Talking about the impending Mumbai schedule, he said, “For the next 5 days, we will be shooting an action sequence for the film in Kamalistan Studios; we have a 7 am shift. After that, we will shoot a song in Filmistan Studio. Then I will go to Spain for ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’.
Once I return from Spain, we’ll complete the remaining chunk of ‘Golmaal Again’ and then release the movie on Diwali.”The filmmaker was also asked whom he considers the real Khiladi in Bollywood. The ‘Chennai Express’ director said, “Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar are the real khiladis, according to me. Earlier when there were no stuntmen and modern techniques for stunts, they both actually performed their own stunts.”
