New Delhi: Actor Nandish Sandhu, who will be entering stunt-based reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi - Darr Ka Blockbuster Returns” as a wild card entry, says his rebellious streak prompted him to take up the show.
“Personally I have always been a little rebel. The show challenges you at every step with tasks which seem to be impossible to do. Hence, this factor made me say 'yes' to the show,” the actor told over phone from Mumbai.
“I have always believed in breaking my comfort zone as I feel if we keep on doing the same thing again and again, then we won't be able to learn something new,” he added.
The actor also insists that the stunts are not so easy to perform as they seem to be on screen.
“It is very easy to comment that the stunt could have been finished a little faster. But it's not easy to perform in front of the camera. You don’t have any retakes.
“There is pressure with so many people watching you, fear, anxiety and a lot of other factors come into play. But despite all that you have to stay calm and do it,” the actor said.
Nandish says his worst fear is “not being able to do something and heights”.
“I’m hoping that they don't come in between while I am doing stunts,” the actor said.
Nandish is known for his guy-next-door image courtesy his TV shows like “Uttaran” and “Beintehaa”. He says he is not entering the show to break his image.
“I don't think like that. I don't feel that I need to change my image or do something so that people get to know the other side of me. If that was the question, I would have done so many things in the past,” Nandish said.
His entry in the show is the talking point as his wife and actress Rashami Desai is also in the show. Rumours are rife that the couple has separated owing to some differences; however, Nandish has always maintained a dignified silence.
His entry is bound to raise questions about his personal life, but Nandish says “there's no point in running away from something”.
“It's perfectly fine. There is no point in running away from something. Let there be questions. It is not compulsory for me to answer all of them. If I feel that I need to talk about something I will do it. As far as my personal life is concerned I don't think I need to discuss it with the world,” he said.
“She is a part of me and I look forward to meet her in South Africa,” Nandish added.
