Unfortunately, Avika Gor was evicted from Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 on January 19, after giving a tough competition to all her co-contestants. In a recent interview with leading news daily, she talked about the reason of her participation in the Colours show and also overcoming most of her fears.
The Balika Vadhu star actor Avika Gor was evicted from the show Khatron Ke Khiladi when she was pitted against Aly Goni and Jasmin Bhasin in an elimination task. Talking about her unforgettable jpurney, Avika said, “It was an amazing time that I had with the team. When we were flying to Argentina, I was still in a second mind on my flight. I was really thinking about going back. And now people are saying that if I could do this at such a young age, I can really do bigger things (laughs). I remember Rohit Shetty sir always said that more than winning, you should get all tasks done. I am so proud of myself that I completed all my tasks. I think everyone who gets a chance to do Khatron, should take it up without a thought. It is a life changing experience for sure.”
Everyone, who follows the show, knows that the first week turned out to be the toughest for the popular TV actress a she started to face some allergic reactions after an initial task but Gor overcome that. “The task was really very difficult. Not just me, even Sreesanth faced a reaction because of the insect bites. And cockroaches are my biggest phobia. To be inside the box with them was a nightmare. But I am happy that I did manage to get over my fear,” she shared.
Although she was the youngest contestant on KKK season 9 but when she was asked if that made it difficult to cope up with the other challenger, she replied, “Not at all. The show is not about age, to be honest. And being the youngest, I was simply pampered by all my co-contestants. Be it Bharti Singh, Aly Goni or Jasmin Bhasin, they took so much care. I remember once I didn’t want to go to the doctors, and Shamita Shetty and Vikas Gupta were on my door, and forced me to go for the check-up. I think being the youngest was the best part as I was loved and how!”
Further she also talked about the bonding she had developed and friends she made during this thrilling journey. The actor said, “It’s friendship completely. Unfortunately, as I fell ill, I couldn’t go out too often. But the connections that we have made are for life. It was really special. Jasmin and Aly are really fun to be around. I have found a brother in Aly. Bharti and Haarsh make sure that everyone is smiling around them. Competition is definitely there but we believed in backing each other more.”
The 21-year-old also revealed that the tough host of the show, Rohit Shetty has a soft side to his personality as well. “At times he would be really strict. But I think it’s only because he wanted us to complete the task safely. He made it an effort to make us comfortable during the stunts. Also, he really pushed us and supported us to give our best. It is because of his motivation that we could do so well," she said.
Gor felt really disappointed to get evicted first, she concluded her interview by saying, “I really felt bad as I wanted to do as many tasks I could and even win the show. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity after all. But then after the allergic reaction, the doctors gave me a lot of limitation. So I wouldn’t have been able to do most of the tasks. But yes, I will cherish each moment spent on the show. I will flaunt the injuries and marks like shields. It will remind me of how strong and courageous I was on the show.”
