TV actress Riddhi Dogra, the latest contestant to be ousted from “Khatron Ke Khiladi 6”, says host Rohit Shetty’s image of a tough task master will change with this season.
Riddhi has become the fourth contestant to be eliminated from the Colors show after Harshad Chopra, Siddharth Bhardwaj and Archana Vijay.
“I think that strict image of his will change from this season. This time he has laughed so much, he is enjoying and making fun of the situations. So, there was a little less of scolding us and more of laughter,” Riddhi told PTI.
The 30-year-old actress said most of the contestants were just competing with themselves, which created a healthy environment on the sets and eased out everyone including the “Chennai Express” filmmaker.
“Everybody says he is a tough host but I think because we all were really confident and secure in who we are, most of us were just competing with ourselves so it was a healthy environment. We were having fun. Everyone was quite eased out and because of that even Rohit sir was fun,” she said.
The actress called her elimination stunt “easy” but blamed going first for the task for her eviction.
“It was just a bad day and a couple of bad things which led to my eviction. My stunt involved cockroaches and I freaked out but I accept my eviction with all humility.
“I think going first was the biggest disadvantage. If I wouldn’t have gone first I would have known how to do it properly. It was an easy stunt but I was so annoyed with cockroaches running all over my body that I just didn’t want to do it,” Riddhi said.
She said either Hussain Kuwajerwala or her good friend Asha Negi should win the competition.
“In girls, I would want Asha to win because she is mentally very strong. Among the guys, I would be happy if Hussain wins. He does his stunts with precision and clarity. I don’t mean that others have malice but Hussain is very clean and sensible and a very positive guy,” Riddhi said.
The actress said her friendship with Asha helped her stay on the show.
“Asha and I are friends from before. So it helped that we had each other during our stay,” she said.
Hailing the show as one of the best experiences of her life, the “Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak?” actress said, “I feel blessed to have been on the show. It was such an amazing experience. I think I have done all my life’s adventure on this show. Every day was a new day and with a new task for us.”
The celebrity contestants left on ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi Darr Ka Blockbuster Returns’ are Ashish Chowdhry, Hussain, Iqbal Khan, Sana Khan, Sagarika Ghatge, Rashami Desai, Asha Negi, Meiyang Chang, Rakesh Kumar and Nathalia Kaur.
