There are reports suggesting that actor Sharad Malhotra, who was last seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Naagin 5, has been approached for the upcoming season of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. However, there is no official confirmation on the same.
Sharad was paired opposite actress Surbhi Chandna in Naagin 5. It was the duo’s first collaboration and their chemistry was hit among the viewers. The supernatural show went off air in February after running for a period of six months.
Talking to Calcutta Times, Sharad said, “You get used to a certain routine. When you work round the clock with the same set of people, you become a big, happy working family. As the project gets over, there’s suddenly a void. Your daily schedule changes. You miss those evening addas, having coffee with the cast and all the action on the set. Am missing all the fun.”
Naagin 5 also had actor Mohit Sehgal in the lead role along with Sharad and Surbhi. Actors Hina Khan, Dheeraj Dhoopar and Mohita Malhotra were roped in by Ekta to launch the new season. Post their exit, the three actors took over the show.
