In an exclusive interview with News18, Daisy Shah opened up about her participation in Khatron Ke Khiladi 13 and the fears she wants to overcome in the process. She said, “I am a little bit of both nervous and excited, and more in the processing zone, I guess because I am the last person to come on board and we are like days away from leaving for the shoot and [there are] a lot of things to prepare, and no time at all.”
She added that she is mentally preparing herself to face the challenges and thinks that although she does not have time to build her strength, her dedication to staying fit all her life will help her sail through the difficult tasks.
When asked about what she fears the most, the actress said that there is no particular thing that she is scared of, but she added, “Insects, bugs, and creepy crawlers, they gross me out, and I don’t know what is going to happen.”
Meanwhile, this year on Khatron Ke Khiladi, popular faces such as Arjit Taneja, Ruhi Chaturvedi, Anjum Fakih, Anjali Anand, and Archana Gautam, among others, will be seen competing. Reportedly, the contestants will be departing for South Africa to begin filming towards the end of May.
