Director Rohit Shetty said he would push the contestants of the adventure reality show ‘Khatron ke Khiladi’ to their limits.
Rohit, 40, is hosting the fifth season of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi – Darr Ka Blockbuster’ being aired from March 22.
“While I know how to ensure that the contestants are always on their feet, I am going to push them to their limits. Action and entertainment are my forte and the lighter moments that I hope to create will make the ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ experience a truly memorable one,” Rohit told PTI.
The filmmaker said he cannot keep himself away from giving a touch of humour to his work.
“While I am excited by the concept of action and adventure, I can’t keep myself away from adding a touch of humour to my work,” he said.
“While the scripts were being narrated to me, I kept improvising on them and that’s how it all started. The seriousness, aggression and synergies will continue to be intact as per the theme of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’,” he added.
Rohit recalled his father late stunt man M B Shetty on the show aired yesterday, which involved toughened glass. He said his father had introduced the special glass in Bollywood.
The ‘Chennai Express’ director broke one such piece of standing toughened glass with gloved hands in the show.
