Will help 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' contestants overcome their fears: Rohit Shetty
The filmmaker had previously hosted 'Big Switch - Season 3' and was seen actively encouraging the contestants.

Mumbai: Director Rohit Shetty, known for making action comedies, takes it forward as the host of TV adventure show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'. He accepted the offer because he feels people can relate the show to him.

"Khatron Ke Khiladi", an Indian adaptation of US show 'Fear Factor', sees celebrities from different walks of life fighting their worst fears to win the title.

Asked what made him say 'yes' to the show, Shetty laughed and said: "Just imagine me sitting in Karan Johar's place and hosting 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' or 'Nach Baliye'. People will not associate it with me."

"I thought this is one show where even I can give something rather than just sitting there. The whole format, and the earlier seasons that I have seen, I felt it's a grand show infused with action. I am quite excited about it," Shetty told IANS.

This is not his first stint as a host of a reality show. The 40-year-old had previously hosted "Big Switch - Season 3" and was seen actively encouraging the contestants.

And in 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' too he will try to help participants overcome their fears.

"I will definitely encourage them. And the biggest fear is what people will think of them if they are unable to do something. So, I will try and remove that fear (from their minds) - I'll tell them there is another day and they can improve," he said.

Celebrities like Ranvir Shorey, Gauahar Khan, Kushal Tandon, Mugdha Godse, Rochelle Maria Rao, Nikitin Dheer, Dayanand Shetty, Salman Yusuff Khan, Pooja Gor, Rajniesh Duggall, Gurmeet Choudhary, Debina Bonnerjee and stuntwoman Geeta Tandon will be seen in "Khatron Ke Khiladi 5", which will go on air on Colors in near future.
