Sheezan Khan reveals Khatron Ke Khiladi made him overcome his fears says, its ‘Once-in-a-lifetime’ experience

The actor is eager to put his co-star Tunisha Sharma’s tragic death behind him.

Actor Sheezan Khan, who was arrested after his co-star Tunisha Sharma committed suicide in 2022, said the stunt-based reality programme ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ helped him bring back his confidence.

Elaborating on his thoughts about the show, he says, “I had put a lot of pressure on myself, but when I began my adventure on ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, executed stunt after stunt, and progressed in the competition, there was a sense of relief that I could do it. Every stunt made me a little different and gave me more self-assurance. The show really helped me regain my confidence.” He says, “I think KKK-13 has allowed me to showcase myself to the audience in a much better way than in daily soaps. In daily soaps, we, as actors, play a character and portray it, but in reality shows, it’s a different case. Especially in a show like Khatron Ke Khiladi, you have to be yourself, and you perform the task for yourself, which shows the real you to everyone.”

‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ brought forth a lot of “firsts” for Sheezan, which encouraged him to be more spontaneous and confident in his actions. He feels the show helped him regain his confidence and bring out his true self. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for him that he recommends to anyone with the opportunity.

He says: “KKK-13 has taught me a lot – to overcome my fears, to never give up no matter how tough it gets, and to always work on bettering myself. It has also taught me perseverance. I often got bruises on my knees and legs while performing some stunts, but because I was so engrossed in the task, the injuries hardly affected me. I was able to push forward and give my very best to complete the stunts. In fact, I think the scars serve as a pleasant reminder of the lovely time I had on the show.”

Sheezan also had the opportunity to interact with prominent show host Rohit Shetty during the show. Shetty is well-known for his kind yet ambitious demeanour and sense of humour.

Sheezan says of his meeting with Shetty, “He is a great motivator. I met Rohit Shetty for the first time ever through this show. His aura is very powerful, and he is very helpful. Each time during a stunt, whenever anyone got scared, he motivated them and helped everyone get through the stunt safely.”
