Filmmaker Rohit Shetty loves action and this is something that every movie-goers knows. Shetty's films are always high on action and it was no surprise when the director decided to host the stunt reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi'. Rohit is hosting the eighth season of the stunt based reality show and the director admitted in a recent interview that it is mentally exhausting to be a part of such a show. "It's actually a very difficult show. It's not normal. I've done other shows also as a judge - where I would go once a week and sit. But this was mentally taxing. You're working 40 days at a stretch," Rohit said.

Talking about the show, the director said that it is very difficult to work with people who have never done stunts in their life. This causes a lot of stress and one has to make sure that nothing goes wrong. Some of the prominent names from this season are Geeta Phogat, Hina Khan, Manveer Gurjar, Shantanu Maheshwari, Lopamudra Raut, Shiny Doshi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Ravi Dubey, Nia Sharma, Monica Dogra, Shibani Dandekar and Karan Wahi. The filmmaker feels that if there is no drama in a reality show, then it would be boring hence they have added some filler segments this time.

The show is already on air and has received a positive response from the viewers so far. Rohit is currently awaiting the release of his upcoming film with Ajay Devgn, 'Golmaal Again' which is set for release on Diwali.
