New Delhi: Wrestler Geeta Phogat is ready to face fears in the upcoming reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi season 8. However, Geeta, who is India's first woman wrestler to win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, calls herself the 'worst loser,' reports news agency IANS. "See, winning and losing is a part of the game, but I am the worst loser. In the game of wrestling, I lost some games, and that is quite natural. But if I lose one game, it takes time for me to accept that and I become quite a threat for my opponent. But I hope I won't disappoint my fans," she told IANS.
- "I am taking part in the show is to discover my fear," says Geeta
