It was a sad news for all the Khatron Ke Khiladi fans when the season 9 got delayed by several months due to some technical issues. Usually, Khatron Ke Khiladi is aired before Bigg Boss and just after the grand finale, Salman Khan’s reality show is aired on Colors TV. However, this year we saw a change of schedule. Bigg Boss 12 is being premiered from September 16 while Khatron Ke Khiladi has been pushed to 2019. As per latest report from India Forums, Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 will start from January 19. Last year, KKK was aired from May to September.
This year, the line up of contestants includes Zain Imam, Aly Goni, Bharti Singh – Haarsh Limbachiyaa, Punit Pathak, Vikas Gupta, Ridhima Pandit, Jasmin Bhasin, Aditya Narayan and Shamita Shetty.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is coming back to action to host the ninth season of Khatron Ke Khiladi. Last year, dancer and TV actor Shantanu Maheshwari took the winning trophy home along with a brand new Jeep Compass. Hina Khan and Ravi Dubey also made it to the finale.
This year, Khatron Ke Khiladi was shot in Argentina contrary to Spain last year. Season 7 was also hosted in Argentina with Arjun Kapoor as the host.
This year, many celebrity contestants suffered some or the other injury while shooting for Khatron Ke Khiladi. Former Bigg Boss contestant Vikas Gupta was bitten by snake while Aditya Narayan got injured while performing a stunt. Also, Bollywood actress Shamita Shetty called in sick just before the shooting commenced. However, she was back on her feet before we knew.
