Geeta Phogat will be the real competition in Khatron Ke Khiladi – Rithvik Dhanjani

Rithvik Dhanjani, who is doing the latest season of action packed reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi, continues to fight shy from fiction. He has not done a long running show after Pavitra Rishta, which ended in 2014. “I will wait till I get a juicy script, nothing so far has piqued my interest. Indian content is changing for the positive but it will take time for the masses to give up on regressive content, so I am ready to wait. Till then nonfiction (hosting & participating in reality shows such as Nach Baliye, Jhalak Dikhlaja & Dare to Dance) keeps me busy.”

One of the main reason for doing Khatron Ke Khiladi  on Colors according to Rithvik is host Rohit Shetty. “Glad he is back (last season he was replaced by Arjun Kapoor). Asha Negi was full of praise for Rohit’s handling of stunts and how he motivated contestants.”

He also took a fun dig at fellow contestant Karan Wahi saying Karan is scared (smiles) of him. “On a serious note I feel Geeta Phogat (wrestler on whose life Dangal was based) is the one to beat  given her background.” Rithvik also has eyes set on films, “My first film will release in a while.”

He refused to  give out any more details. He is not apprehensice of several small screen actors having unsucesfully tried to make the leap to films. “No fear, it depends on person to person, talent to talent and how inclined you are. I am sure I will  make it as I have put in lots of hard work and perseverance.”
