New Delhi: Khatron Ke Khiladi host Rohit Shetty says that the stunt-based reality show is 'mentally taxing,' reports news agency PTI. Rohit Shetty's films like the Singham series and Dilwale and comedy films like the Golmaal series and Bol Bachchan are replete with cutting-edge action sequences and stunts. Then what made the director make such a statement about Khatron Ke Khiladi? "When you are performing with stuntmen or Ajay, who has been doing stunts for many years, you're not that stressed out. But on the show you have twelve people who have never done stunts. You are making them perform stunts. There is stress, because you need to take care and make sure nothing goes wrong," he told PTI.
