But no such luck for Karan Singh Grover as he is back to Mumbai after his stunts se bharpur shoot in Brazil. He’s back from playing with loads of danger in Khatron Ke Khiladi 3 (KKK). He shares his experience with TellyChakkar. He claims he was a bit under the weather while performing the stunts but managed to sail through with the help Aarti, his partner from Jammu.
How was it?
It was a lot of fun because the place we were in was one of the most beautiful places. There were Incredible Hulk shots and it was quite scary.
Which was the scariest task on the show?
There was this task where we were on a 65-80 feet high barrel that we had to roll with our feet and there was nothing to hold on. And I was down with the first step itself but even the others could not complete it.
Though Priyanka(Chopra) said she had performed it we did not get to see her perform.
You had shot for a couple of episodes before you left for KKK. How did you manage that?
It wasn’t an easy task I did work hard for it though I was unwell. The illness continued even during my trip to Brazil. So, I have performed a lot of stunts with high fever.
How was Priyanka as a host?
She is just awesome though she has this evil side to her. But she was good at her job. She was very professional while she was hosting it but otherwise she was very friendly. We chatted a lot.
Who did you admire the most among your fellow contestants?
Shabbir (Ahluwalia) and Rahul (Bose). Especially Rahul’s partner was just superb and she was called Superb Annie on the show.
With Shabbir it’s just not the performance but the way he does is you feel ‘wow’. He is awesome.
Who was your partner and was she a good support?
My partner was a 23-year-old girl called Aarti from Jammu and she was a great support.
Did you make buddies on the show?
Actually there was not just one person but all of us were together and it was all because of Cyrus (Broacha). He just kept us together but Rahul is who I really look up to. He is a great guy and I even told him that.
What is that one thing that you are going to miss about KKK?
I am going to miss Rio De Janeiro and the beach. It was a beautiful place with gym at every corner. They also had good food especially the meat. I thing I would have loved the place more if I had to be there on a holiday (laughs).
When do you start re-shooting for Dill Mill Gayye?
I am still not well and am recovering from all the illness. I have even lost three kilos. I will be rejoining Dill Mill Gayye from September 10.
