Speaking on participating in this unique format, Rithvik who is in the city of Chandigarh today said, “It is a homecoming for me as Zee TV has always been my lucky charm. People know me as a dancer, actor and anchor but now is my chance to surprise myself even before I surprise my audiences … attempt things I’ve never imagined I could possibly do. It is going to be a tough competition and my first task itself is something that no other celebrity has ever attempted before on Indian television. I will be seen hung mid-air, performing dare-devil stunts on an aerial trapeze swing. This is the most dangerous challenge that I have ever undertaken in my life. I have no idea what are the challenges that are going to be thrown at me as we go along, but I am totally excited! The idea is to do something new in every round.”
The show will be hosted by the dynamic, multi-faceted actor-director Farhan Akhtar, who will be a friend, confidant and motivator to the celebrities.
