Mohit Malik will forever remember his latest stunt on Khatron Ke Khiladi 12, because he credits it for getting him out of a slump. He revealed, “Prior to this stunt coming my way, my graph had kind of gone down unfortunately. I was unable to win my stunts and I had also injured my hand. I remember I was feeling very low that day. I was missing Ekbir, Addite and my family and I had to push myself really hard to do stunts. I was also starting to feel like going back home. The only thing that kept me going was that one instinct to win this for Ekbir. I remember speaking to Addite and my family, who motivated me to keep going and not give up after coming this far. A few people in the crew also came up to me, said a few words of encouragement because they knew I wasn’t up for it. I received a much needed pep talk from everyone around me, even Rohit Sir came to me to pep me up. And then I went for the stunt.”
The stunt required the contestants to balance on two podiums, and release a switch, after which they are required to jump off it. And Mohit had an exhilarating experience doing it. He explained, “I was up against Faisu who did the stunt in a very short span of time. I usually take my time doing stunts and everyone keeps telling me to be mindful of the balance between time and speed. When I saw Faisu’s performance, I was a little worried. But something in me had changed.”
“This day, I was not afraid of losing the stunt and just went for it. I was very fearless this day and that was very important and it worked for me wonderfully. I was not afraid of either falling or failing and I ended up beating Faisu by a mere 5-6 seconds. I managed to stump everyone on the sets. I felt like I was back in the game and this brought back my confidence,” Mohit added.
“This stunt was a lovely one for me. And also a very memorable one from my journey. But this was the stunt that changed everything for me,” he concluded.
