16 March,2015:Â TV actress Ridhi Dogra says she was â€œirritatedâ€ with insects-based stunts due to which she was unable to tackle them and got eliminated from stunt-based reality TV show â€œKhatron Ke Khiladi â€“ Darr Ka Blockbuster Returnsâ€.
She has become the fourth contestant from a line-up of 14 to get eliminated from â€œKhatron Ke Khiladi â€“ Darr Ka Blockbuster Returnsâ€.
For Ridhi, who has appeared in shows like â€œSavitriâ€ and â€œNach Baliye 6â€, the six-week journey was â€œa very good experienceâ€.
â€œI used to believe that Iâ€™m not really fearful and scared of anything. So, I wanted to test that and I realised that Iâ€™m really not scared of anything,â€ Ridhi told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
â€œMy elimination stunt was with cockroaches. It was not that I got frightened, but I got irritated with them. So, itâ€™s not fear that got me eliminated.
â€œI didnâ€™t want them on me. I was so angry at them for walking on my body. They really made me feel annoyed,â€ she added.
However, Ridhi says she has learnt a lot from the show.Â â€œOne thing that I was able to overcome was my fear of height. Now, Iâ€™m not that scared of it. Iâ€™ve gained a lot of mental strength from the show. If we can put our mind into something, then we can definitely attain success from it,â€ she said.
Remembering her days on the show, which was shot in Cape Town, South Africa, she said: â€œWe did all kinds of stunts there. For one stunt, I was in a tank full of water. That time I felt I was in the middle of a tsunami.â€
Ridhi is planning to do more challenging roles in future in the fiction genre.
She added: â€œRight now, Iâ€™ve purposely not taken up a show because Iâ€™m waiting for something challenging and exciting. My previous two shows â€˜Maryadaâ€™ and â€˜Savitriâ€™ have really spoiled me as an actor. My work on both these shows required me to challenge myself as an actor. I want to do fiction in future.â€
Video jockey and host Archana Vijaya and actors Harshad Arora and Sidharth Bhardwaj were previously ousted from the show, hosted by filmmaker Rohit Shetty.
The line-up of celebrity contestants who are left comprise actors Ashish Chowdhry, Hussain Kuwajerwala, Iqbal Khan, Sana Khan, Sagarika Ghatge, Rashami Desai, Asha Negi, the multi-faceted Meiyang Chang, Kabaddi star Rakesh Kumar and item girl Nathalia Kaur.
