One of the most exciting shows to look forward to in the coming year is Khatron Ke Khiladi 9. The last season was a huge hit on the BARC charts, and the channel is sparing no efforts to make this one a success as well. Action enthusiast and top Bollywood director Rohit Shetty is going to host it this year as well. The makers are trying to rope in A-List TV celebs like Zain Imam, Karan Patel, Shamita Shetty, Devoleena Bhattacharjee to name a few. One of the names doing the rounds was that of Avika Gor. Now, it is confirmed that the Balika Vadhu, Sasural Simar Ka and Laado 2 actress is doing the show. She has been a channel favourite since a long time.

Talking to Bombay Times, Avika confirmed the news. She said, “I was approached earlier for other seasons as well, but due to prior commitments like my show ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ and some southern projects, I couldn’t be a part of it. This year it was practical and possible, so I immediately gave a nod.” Like previous year contestants Hina Khan and Nia Sharma, she is also an adventure junkie. She told the paper, “I am an adventure junkie, but honestly, even if a person is adventurous, there is something or the other that he or she is scared of and in ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ there is no mercy. I have always been the youngest and the most pampered on the sets. Here it’s a competition, this show will be a challenge for me.” (Also Read: Bigg Boss 11: Arjun Bijlani, Avika Gor and Meghna Malik to enter Salman Khan’s show)
Incidentally, she also revealed that she has no fears as such. “I have no phobias as such, just a little scared of creepy crawly creatures, they aren’t cute at all. This show will be a test of my strengths. I am going with a lot of hopes. I will face all my fears with complete control, focus and confidence,” she said signing off. Well, after the no-show of Laado 2, we’re sure that she will want to make a great comeback. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates!
