It was his need to face his fears which made actor Shivin Narang agree to be part of the upcoming season of reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi. The actor says that he felt it was time he got out of his comfort zone and did something different. “I have never faced any fears or phobias or any challenges in my life which I am not comfortable with. I think it’s really very important to face these so I said yes. To be honest, I am not good at all the things which happen in Khatron. Whether it is heights, insects or water, I am not comfortable. I know I have fears and I don’t want to face them. Being an actor and after working for a long time, I am in a very comfortable space. I am good at what I am doing. Apart from the stunts, coming into the reality space is also a kind of fear which I have not faced until now. With this, I want to explore, face challenges, face my fears and do something which I have never done before,” says Shivin, who has been part of shows such as Ek Veer Ki Ardaas…Veera, Suvreen Guggal–Topper of The Year and is currently part of Internet Wala Love.
The actor has watched very little of the show earlier. “I used to follow Fear Factor when I was a child but Khatron Ke Khiladi is a very different Indian concept. I have not followed much but I have seen some clips. I have seen the season in which Bharti and Harsh were there and it was really very entertaining. All of them were really very good. It’s more a mental game than a physical one,” he says.
The actor is focussed on enjoying the show, and not just winning it. “Generally, my habit is to win everything or to be number one in whatever I do but this time, I am just going with a very open mind. I don’t know what is going to happen. Maybe I will be evicted in the first episode itself or maybe I will be in the finals. My only challenge is with my own self and with my fears. I am not going to make a name for myself or to get fame or money. Will power and a strong mental self are the biggest things that I want to work on building during the show,” he says.
