Model-actor Shashvat Seth breaks ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’ record by breaking 5/5 slabs
The 24-year-old brat from Indore, who is into acting, modeling and working out, broke the record of ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’ show on COLORs in Season 4’ during the GLASS SLAB STUNT. He broke all 5/5 slabs and this was unexpected by the stunt team too.
Shashvat Seth successfully took the ultimate challenge in COLORS in the Fourth and one of the most torturous ever seasons of Thums Up Fear Factor ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ – Torchaar and Akshay Kumar at the show’s helm to inflict some real torture on show’s contestants. Shashvat Seth, who along with model Alesia Raut, faced some torturous times with danger always on the menu for Khatron Ke Khiladi contestants and says that Alesia should be grateful to him. He hadn’t taken any acting classes but when he got a call from Endemol, he had to go through driving test, physical test, swimming test, endurance test and medical Test.
As Akshay Kumar returns to test the mettle of contestants, Shashvat Seth raised the bar way higher as the danger levels rose higher. Shashvat was fighting fit as there were going to be no harnesses and cables supporting the contestants in most of the stunts. He headed out on a wild ride with stunts that involve predators from the wild – cheetahs, lions and crocodiles. Teeth, fangs, nails and bloodlust – that’s the name of the game.
Shashvat has full faith in what he can achieve and his ability to perform. “KKK4 is the show where I shall start and perform the most adventurous activities I have ever done. KKK has been an intense show and it is 100% real as compared to the other self claimed reality shows. I had a lot of challenges been thrown at me and for me to discover my phobias.”
Talking about Akshay Kumar, Shashvat Seth says, “Akshay Kumar is the only one who perfectly fits the bill to host the show. He is humble and extremely supportive. I have never met him before but I have seen the show. He is a down to earth and a very easy and an effective host.”
Referring to phobias, Shashvat Seth says, “I haven’t so far discovered my phobias, but I discovered the same when I have got a chance to be on the show and confront more than one task. I’ll consider every task as a fear to overcome though I do fear numbers in real life and consider that to be Arithmophobia. For me Torchaar meant solving math puzzles but now that has changed forever.
Talking about his experiences on the show, Shashvat says, “Alesia Raut should be grateful to me because we really complimented each other very well.
Shashvat says he is Interested in shows which are better than Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi or of the same category but not interested in shows like ‘Roadies’ & ‘Splitsvilla’. He is keen to begin wok on movies.
