Rohit Shetty’s stunt-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi is currently in its 10th season and it has been welcomed with a lot of love by fans and general audiences. What’s more, is that this season boasts of an impressive contestant list with popular actors like Tejasswi Prakash, Shivin Narang, Karan Patel, Dharmesh Yelande and Karishma Tanna among others.
But one contestant who has won over everyone with her candid nature and strength while performing the stunts is Tejasswi Prakash. The actress has an exceptionally impressive track record in the show so far. As a result, it came as a rude shock to many when the actress refused to perform the ‘Ticket To Finale Stunt’ over the weekend.
What was more shocking were allegations from the remaining contestants that Rohit Shetty and the team of Khatron Ke Khiladi has rigged the show! However, the hit-making director gave it back to the contestants sternly when Shivin Narang failed to complete a task. Shetty said, “If I send Tejasswi Prakash to do this stunt and she will do it successfully, you all will call it rigged and accuse the channel and Endemol (Production house) for rigging the stunts. In this particular stunt, nothing can be rigged. It is a simple one. The channel and production house are doing a lot of hard work”.
Meanwhile, Tejasswi Prakash said that she feels her body giving up and does not feel very confident of performing the stunts anymore. But looks like physical pain is not the only thing that has been bogging her down. If industry insiders are to be believed, it is being whispered that Prakash is feeling cornered by co-contestants that is taking a toll on her mental health too.
Opening up about the same, a source has been quoted by Telly Chakkar saying, “If you watch the show closely, you will realise that nobody motivated Tejasswi Prakash as such when Rohit Shetty was giving her a pep talk on changing her decision of quitting the show during one of the tasks while all the contestants went out of their ways to cheer up and motivate Karan Patel for doing the creepy crawlies’ stunt. Even in the last episode when Tejasswi won against Shivin, the contestants were not very happy. It was very evident that the contestants were wanting a lesser competitive person to qualify in the stunt so that it can be easier for them to defeat him in future. Not only physical bruises and injuries, but Tejasswi was also suffering an emotional meltdown because of the way she was treated in the show.”
Well if that is truly the case, it certainly is a very sad scenario with very little sportsman spirit shown by the contestants. Do let us know what do you think about the whole episode in the comments section below.
