Newlywed Rahul Vaidya battles his worst fears in Rohit Shetty-hosted reality reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 11, which premieres tonight on Colors.
The singer was also recently featured in Bigg Boss 14, where he finished first runner-up. While chatting with indianexpress.com, he shared that KKK 11’s “different” format told him yes to another reality show after Bigg Boss 14.
“It’s really very unconventional. I’ve never done anything like this, and things couldn’t be as real as they were on Khatron. Where do you get the chance to be close to snakes, lions or do all kinds of crazy things,” Rahul Vaidya said. He added that his biggest fears were snakes and water.
When asked about his performance on the show, Rahul gave himself an eight out of ten. He detailed one of his most difficult tasks, saying: “So we were hung upside down with legs tied to a crane. We were then dropped into a pool and underwater we had to remove flags. I wish I could tell you more about what happened.” happened, but I believe I nailed the task and I can’t wait for the public to see it.”
While Rahul Vaidya in Bigg Boss 14 had a hard time learning with other housemates, the singer shared to his surprise that he has a good relationship with everyone on KKK 11. He said: “Only a few participants get the chance to perform , so everyone else is cheering for them. Everyone tried their best and motivated others. It was so cool and I had a lot of fun.”
For the Indian Idol runner-up, the contestant who really surprised him was ‘Divyanka Tripathi’, as he said: “Her image is that she is a television bahu, but she was brilliant on the show. She surprised not only me, but everyone I feel.”
Rahul also had some positive words for Rohit Shetty as he said: “When it comes to his job he’s quite the teacher, but otherwise he chills with all of us. What I’ve learned from him is that you can see their work, technicians and colleagues must respect. It was great to work with him.”
Rahul Vaidya thanked his fans for all the love they have given him and added that everything he does and will do will be for them. Finally, when we asked him to choose between Bigg Boss and Khatron Ke Khiladi, he said: “Both had their own charm, but I think Bigg Boss 14 was more difficult. In Khatron, even if I had the worst day, I could come out, talk to my family and my girlfriend and feel good. Whatever happened in Bigg Boss, good or bad, I had no one to share.”
In addition to Rahul Vaidya, Khatron Ke Khiladi will see 11 Divyanka Tripathi, Arjun Bijlani, Abhinav Shukla, Sourabh Raaj Jain, Nikki Tamboli, Sana Makbul, Varun Sood, Arjun Bijlani, Vishal Aditya Singh, Anushka Sen, Maheck Chahal and Aastha Gill as participants.
