Farah Khan On Replacing Rohit Shetty On Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made In India, 'Unlike Him I Am A Funny Host Who Kept Spirits High'
It was only some days ago that the rumours of Farah Khan replacing Rohit Shetty for the special edition show titled Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made In India came floating on the internet. And in no time, the Om Shanti Om filmmaker confirmed the same by sharing a picture of her from the action reality show's sets. However, she's there as a substitute for only a couple of episodes as Shetty is busy with his other professional commitments. Now, in an interview with Times Of India, Farah Khan shared her excitement and nervousness on stepping into Rohit's shoes for the action-packed show.

A soft-hearted Farah Khan recalled how she was warned by the channel to not to feel sorry for any of the contestants. She said, "The channel warned me I couldn't feel sorry for the contestants, most of whom I know from before, and tell them they could abort the task whenever they were in pain. But the fact is that I'm the first host on the show who was actually scared." Farah added, "For instance, when a car goes underwater, it can be really scary. And it would take a lot of money to make me get anywhere near creepy crawlies."

Farah agreed to come on board for the show in a couple of minutes after Rohit asked her to. "But as the only woman director who's had a lot of action in her films and a reality show junkie, I was on board in a flash when Rohit asked me to. Unlike Rohit, who can perform the stunts he gives the contestants, I was a funny host who kept spirits high," said the filmmaker.


Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made In India will feature Rithvik Dhanjani, Harsh Limbachiyaa, Rashami Desai, Nia Sharma, Jasmine Bhasin, Aly Goni, Jay Bhanushali and Karan Wahi. Well, we are damn excited about this one already!
