Khatron Ke Khiladi is back with its ninth season and this time the theme is ‘Jigar pe Trigger’. The show will premiere on January 5, 2019, and will air every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm on Colors. Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 was launched last night in Mumbai and at the event, Rohit Shetty said that this time, the makers have taken the stunts to a new level.
“Khatron Ke Khiladi is a very tough show. Lot of planning goes into designing stunts, work begins at least three to six months before the show goes on air. We first have to scout for apt location for the season. Plan and do the stunts we end up doing three stunts a day, overall there are 100 stunts performed during the entire season. The credit for the show goes to the technicians who work hard I just come in the end look at the stunts and tweak a bit if required. And on TV it may look like the stunt is performed in few minutes but the reality is it takes six months of pre-planning. Once the show is edited it looks cool on TV,” Rohit told reporters here Thursday at the launch of Khatron Ke Khiladi, season nine.
“When we do stunts contestants do stunts even when the weather plays a spoilsport. Like last season which was held in Cape Town it was raining on the day when we were supposed to do the finale shoot but we planned the stunt with rains. This season the contestants have performed stunts in minus 1 or 2 degree temperature that’s how much real the show is.”
Celebrities including Bharti Singh, her husband Harsh Limbachiya, Sreesanth, Vikas Gupta, Aditya Narayan, Shamita Shetty, Jasmine Bhasin, Ridhima Pandit, Zain Imam, Puneet Pathak, Avika Gor, Aly Gony have participated this season. “Khatron Ke Khiladi’ this season is like masala entertainer movie it has all the right ingredients like action, drama, comedy and emotion. This season the stunts are unique,” Rohit said. “The contestants are actors they are not stunt artists. My job is to encourage them to do stunts and also see to it they are safe and secure,” he added.
