Joined the show to understand myself as a person: Daisy Shah on ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’￼
Mumbai May 18 dmanewsdesk: Actor Daisy Shah, known for films “Jai Ho” and “Race 3”, says she made the decision to participate in reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi” as she wanted to discover her limits and fears.
Shah is taking part in the 13th installment of the stunt-based series, hosted by filmmaker Rohit Shetty, along with the likes of Shiv Thakare, Rohit Roy, Rashmeet Kaur, Dino James, Anjali Gautam, Arjit Taneja, Ruhi Chaturvedi, Anjum Fakih, Anjali Anand, Nyrraa M Banerji, Aishwarya Sharma and Soundous Moufakir.
The 38-year-old actor said she is always on the lookout for opportunities where she can try her hand at something new and exciting.
“What better than ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ because of the kind of adventure you go through, and the fears that you face and overcome. I am going there to understand myself better as a person, to understand my fears, which I don’t know yet,” Shah told PTI in an interview.
Being a part of the popular reality show was something, the actor said, she manifested over the years.
“A year before, I had mentioned in one of the interviews when I was asked ‘If there is anything that I want to try in the space of TV?’ I said ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’. It is a show that is my kind. I manifested it for myself,” she said.
Shah said she doesn’t believe in differentiating between movies and television as they both are different mediums of entertainment.
“In my dictionary, I do not have categories when it comes to the entertainment industry, like TV and movies are different. What are they doing at the end of the day? Entertaining people,” she said.
The actor said she is looking forward to meeting Shetty, with whom she previously collaborated as an assistant dance choreographer on quite a few films, including the “Golmaal” franchise.
“I know him, his direction, team. It has been more than a decade that I have not met him. So, it will be like refreshing the memories,” she said.
On the movies front, Shah said she will soon feature in two films.
“There are two projects which have already been completed. They are likely to be released in October. Besides, I have a film, which will begin in November. I have two-three months in between, where I am free, and this (‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’) came to me as a blessing.
“I thought, why not do it? I had my family and friend’s support,” the actor said.
The 13th season of “Khatron Ke Khiladi” will premiere in July on Colors channel.
