Reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi, which is in its eight season, was launched officially on Tuesday night. The show will be hosted by filmmaker Rohit Shetty and will be shot in Spain. Khatron Ke Khiladi line-up includes 12 contestants: wrestler Geeta Phogat, Bigg Boss 10's Manveer Gurjar and Lopamudra Raut, VJ Shibani Dandekar, actors Monica Dogra, Nia Sharma, Ravi Dubey, Karan Wahi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Hina Khan, Shiny Doshi and Shantanu Maheshwari. Of the show, Rohit Shetty said, "I'm hoping we create another blockbuster experience for all. I'm looking forward to know them and test their fear quotient."
Hina Khan of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, also posted a picture from the press meet. Khatron Ke Khiladi will be Hina's first reality show. She quit Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai last year in November.
Khatron Ke Khiladi is an adaptation of the American television show Fear Factor, where celebrities are made to face their fears through different stunts. Last season was hosted by actor Arjun Kapoor, who is now prepping for the release of Half Girlfriend. "Arjun won't be able to host the show for the second time as his hands are full with three films," a spokesperson told news agency PTI.
Rohit Shetty had hosted the fifth and sixth season of the show. Akshay Kumar hosted season 1, 2 and 3 in a row while Priyanka Chopra hosted the third part. Last year, actor Siddharth Shukla was named the winner of Khatron Ke Khiladi.
