Sriti told the Hindustan Times that she and Shabir must continue because the show itself had to continue with its story. After Sriti’s Pragya and Shabirov’s Abhi fell into a coma in a dramatic twist, the show shifted its focus to the next generation starring Mugdha Chaphekar and Krishna Kaul as the lead characters.

She said: “The story was supposed to go on, and it progressed wonderfully. It was for the good of the show, but we had to go on because the story had to go on. It’s going so well and it’s amazing to see it happen because I’m very close to the people who are currently on the show and I’m in touch with the team and everything else. I’ve made so many friends so there’s no loss. “

Sriti is currently in Cape Town, where she is filming the 12th season of the Khatron Ke Khiladi series with her 13 famous co-contestants and host Rohit Shetty. In the promotions of the show, she was seen kissing an alligator and walking on a rope with a snake around her neck among other stunts. She said catching alligators is a new experience for her, while slecklineing is something she used to train on her own.

She said: “Taking an alligator in my hands is not something I expected to do in my life, and being able to do it without injuring an animal was a challenge. Extremely terrifying. It was quite bizarre. For years. and to the team that they are incredibly kind and gave me the opportunity to slackline in front of the camera. It’s really nice of them to make room for my personal source of joy in this show. “

Although Sriti excels in the fitness department, he does not think he has an advantage over his competitors. She said: “I can’t even explain how much lower my arm is if it’s an expression. I’m not very brave, I’m afraid of too many things and I have too many inhibitions. So I don’t have an advantage in that regard. This is a really bizarre show. to do crazy things. There is no way to prepare for such things. I think this is preparation for the rest of your life. “

Apart from Sriti, he will appear in the show Rubina Dilaik, Pratik Sehajpal, Nishant Bhat, Faisal Sheikh, Shivangi Joshi, Jannat Zubair, Tushar Kalia, Mohit Malik, Erika Packard, Chetna Pande, Kanika Mann, Aneri Vajani and Rajiv Adatia. The actor described his teammates as an ‘amazing group of people’ with whom she lovingly talked about the time they spend together off camera. Sriti mentioned that, although she had already established a connection with most of them, she was “very close” to Aneri and Nishant.

The actress mentioned that she went to the show to have a good time and to have an adventure, and that she was not aiming to win. She said: “I’m not looking at the trophy at all. I’m looking forward to having fun and doing what I’m doing, and now that I’m connecting with this amazing group of 13 people, I’m looking forward to having a good day. They’re all great and it’s fun. to see them conquer all. “

Sriti also received all the praise for the host of the show and the mentor– the filmmaker Rohit Shetty. She said: “Apart from being a guide and mentor on this trip, he is also a man with an incredibly mischievous sense of humor. So he doesn’t miss any opportunity to throw himself at any of us. And when someone does a really good job of stunts, he really he feels happy in his heart and he feels proud. I really like to see that. It’s very nice. “

Khatron Ke Khiladi season 12 will premiere on Colors TV on July 2.
