The much-anticipated Khatron Ke Khiladi 12 is set to premiere on Colors soon. While Rohit Shetty returns as host this season, fans are divided between the many popular celebrities who will demonstrate their adventurous side on the reality show. Mr Faisu, Sriti Jha, Rubina Dilaik, Shivangi Joshi, Pratik Sehajpal, and Mohit Malik are among the contestants chosen by the producers. While these celebrities face their fears while performing daredevil stunts, host Rohit Shetty revealed that many in the audience believe they are only ‘acting,’ and that the action-packed stunts are all computer-generated.
In a recent interview with reporters, the filmmaker revealed that he is frequently asked if the stunts seen on Khatron Ke Khiladi are real. “Normally, we shoot the entire show and send the package to the channel.” This will be the first time we will go live on TV while still filming. I am frequently asked if the stunts are real. Many people ask me, ‘CGI kiya hai kya?’ I’m then forced to explain that “yes, every stunt is performed by these contestants themselves.”
Given the inherent dangers of filming, we inquired as to whether they had ever encountered a concerning situation. After a brief pause, Rohit Shetty stated that they never had a scare jump moment during his time on the show, and he thanked his team for diligently taking care of everything. “Of course, tasks are intimidating for contestants, but my team works meticulously to avoid any mishaps.”
The Singham director described this season as a “blockbuster,” and revealed that the contestants have set a bar for the lowest number of aborts. As he piled on his squad, we wondered if actors want to do well on the show in order to impress him and land a role in one of his films. “I don’t believe so. I had previously worked with Mugdha Godse in All the Best, Dayanand Shetty had already signed Singham, and Nikiteen Dheer later worked with me in Chennai Express. “But they don’t come on the show to audition for me,” he laughed.
Khatron Ke Khiladi 12 is being shot in Cape Town, South Africa, and will be completed by July 16. The show will premiere on July 2 and will air every weekend at 9 p.m.
