MUMBAI: Action director-producer Rohit Shetty is back on Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi wherein 12 daredevil (jaanbaaz) Khiladis will test their fear quotient in Spain.

Twenty episodes of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' have already been lined up to be telecast on Viacom18's Colors channel which is accessible in over 90 per cent television households in India. Around Rs 60-70 crore has already been invested in the show of dare-devilry, it has been reliably learnt by www.indiantelevision.com.

'Pain in Spain' is the theme of the new season of the biggest action=packed reality show on Indian television, for which celebrities will be travelling to Spain on 17 May.

The show will showcase action from the land of flamenco, fiesta and folklore – Spain, this year. Shetty makes a comeback after a year to host the upcoming season.

Produced by Endemol Shine India, the beautiful terrains of Spain are all set to turn into a battleground with never-seen-before stunts as Khatron Ke Khiladi preps up to premiere this monsoon.

Speaking about the newest edition, recently promoted Viacom18 COO Raj Nayak said, “Both the seasons that Shetty hosted earlier yielded rich dividends. This time, with an exotic destination like Spain and carefully handpicked contestants, we are sure the show will become a blockbuster.”

Living the ‘pain’ in Spain on Khatron Ke Khiladi will be 12 enthusiastic khiladis who will taste fear at every step of their journey on the show. The handpicked khiladis include internationally acclaimed wrestler Geeta Phogat, Bigg Boss’s common man champion Manveer Gurjar, bold and daring Shibani Dandekar, Lopamudra Raut, Monica Dogra and Nia Sharma, charming actors Ravi Dubey, Karan Wahi and Rithvik Dhanjani, television beauties Hina Khan and Shiny Doshi, and hip-hop king Shantanu Maheshwari.

Together, these jaanbaaz khiladis will battle not only Spain’s unpredictable spring weather, but also specially curated stunts that will challenge their limitations.

Said Manisha Sharma, Programming Head – COLORS, “The line-up this year is very promising and the fact that we must take the show to its next level is very challenging. With Shetty back, we have tried to custom-make stunts going by the playout of the previous seasons. Shetty too has his own ideas of frying this new bunch of contestants! The season is truly going to be Darr Ki Nayi Definition. The viewers will have a blast watching the Dangal girl - Geeta Phogat fight in a new battleground, daily soap bahu - Hina Khan test new waters out of her comfort zone, and have other television heartthrobs, Bigg Boss winners, singers and anchors prove their mettle against fear.”

Shetty, said, “Muchas gracias, Colors for having me back on Khatron Ke Khiladi. Spain has some amazing locations that can truly test the daredevilry of the khiladis. With Colors and Endemol, together, I’m hoping we create another blockbuster experience for all. Colors has picked up some excellent contestants this season and like the viewers, I’m looking forward to know them and test their fear quotient."

Deepak Dhar, Managing Director & CEO - Endemol Shine India said, “With Khatron Ke Khiladi, Endemol Shine India continues to push the threshold of action, drama, and entertainment, on a grander scale with every passing year. Our constant endeavor is to redefine the notion of fear while creating a wholesome entertainment experience. This year, Spain will form the perfect setting for the stunts that we have planned. It’s going to be a fear-filled ride; Khatron Ke Khiladi will explore uncharted avenues of ‘Darr’ this season.”

As Khatron Ke Khiladi’s 12 unsuspecting khiladis depart for Spain with Shetty, they will be faced with a mix of stunts featuring not only heights, water, creepy crawlies and wilderness, but also some of the wildest experiences that will change their perspective of fear altogether!
