Viacom 18's Colors is all set for the season 7 of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi', the stunt-based reality show. Actor Arjun Kapoor will play host to fourteen contestants during this expedition. The show's new theme 'Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda', is based on 'the resilience and courage that will take centre-stage, as phobias will be shown the door and inner strength will reign supreme.' Arjun Kapoor is expected to bring in his quintessential sense of humor and a happy-go-lucky attitude to this edition of Fear Factor India. Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and director Rohit Shetty have been previous hosts of the show. The team is all set to shoot the new season in the Buenos Aires, Argentina in November over a month long schedule.
Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, adds, "One needs to be mentally tough and willing to challenge one's grit to participate in a show like Khatron Ke Khiladi. Our fourteen daring contestants are looking stellar and are raring to go. And making his television debut, Arjun Kapoor will be the cool and mischievous Gen X host who will not only take digs at contestants, but also be their source of moral support. As their perseverance of the contestants comes to test, a self-assured and assertive Arjun Kapoor will lighten the mood while combining elements of fun and fear to create unparalleled entertainment for both contestants and viewers."
Speaking about his television debut, Arjun Kapoor said, "I love action in all its forms. Be it daredevil stunts or intense action sequences in my films. The thrill and adrenalin rush which accompanies a well-planned stunt is an experience which cannot be put into words. With Khatron Ke Khiladi, I'm not only going to be performing stunts, but will also be involved in designing them and watching them come alive. And with the 'peeda and keeda' concept, I'm definitely looking forward to having some mad fun with the contestants in Argentina."
Deepak Dhar, Managing Director, Endemol Shine India said, "This season Khatron Ke Khiladi -Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda will be a gruelling challenge for the contestants! They will have to deal with our many innovations in stunt design, with additional keedas (trouble and insects) and peedas (the pain) to overcome their many apprehensions and fears. With Arjun Kapoor hurling the challenges to the band of daredevils, this year, the fun, action and entertainment quotient will explode! We cannot wait for the contestants to reach Argentina and experience the thrill first-hand."
