Reality shows based on high octane stunts picture the audaciousness of celebrities who challenge themselves to go beyond their comfort zone. Such is the show Khatron Ke Khiladi which is an adaptation of an international reality show where participants dare to take the plunge.
As per the reports in a leading daily, television producer Vikas Gupta, who is currently shooting in Argentina for the ninth season of Khatron Ke Khiladi has severely injured his shoulder so much such that the makers of the show aren't ready to take any risk on his health that could possibly add to the problems of the show.
The makers of the show have asked him to leave the show owing to the same reason. Informing about the same, a source close to the development revealed to a leading daily, "Vikas was one of the top contenders on the show. But, he hid his shoulder injury from the makers and was performing all the stunts after taking painkiller injections that could have become lethal. Keeping the safety of the contestants in mind, the channel has booted him from the competition."
The source added that the medications can lead to shoot up the heart rate and if rigorous physical activities are involved then it can prove fatal to his health.
"The doctors refused to give him a clean chit and he was asked to leave," the source added. The decision came into light just two weeks before the finale of the show. It's not the first time that the producer has faced physical injuries. Earlier, he was bitten by a snake while performing the stunts in the show.
