The last season of Khatron Ke Khiladi was won by Siddharth Shukla. Season 7 was hosted by movie star Arjun Kapoor. The show when launched on Colors TV was hosted by Akshay Kumar, who did hosting for 1st, 2nd and 4th seasons. The 3rd season saw the appearance of gorgeous Priyanka Chopra – yes, the same girl who had recently hit Hollywood through the TV series “Quantico”. Rohit Shetty bequeathed the host’s chair from Priyanka and Akshay in 5th season of the TV show. Shetty is known for his unique methods of fiddling with contestant’s mind and giving them creeps and dreads that the contestants possibly remember for a long time. This year too, Rohit is back and the entire crew of the show will move to Spain to start shooting in the latter half of this year.
