Known as the mastermind of the reality show Bigg Boss 11, Vikas Gupta has been a part of the stunt-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 9. This season of the reality show has been hosted by Rohit Shetty and has a unique mix of contestants. While shooting the stunts, the contestants have to refrain from taking any medications or if they are taking any, they have to let the makers know. Well, that was something that Vikas Gupta didn’t keep in mind. In the latest promo of the show, it was revealed that Vikas Gupta took drugs during the show.
As a consequence of that, when Rohit Shetty and the makers found out about it, Vikas was disqualified from the show. In the promo, we can see Rohit Shetty getting extremely furious on Vikas and can be seen shouting at him. He also tells Vikas that despite whatever medication it was, his heart rate could have plummeted during any stunt which could prove fatal as well. Post this promo, everyone has been shocked about Vikas’s disqualification including his mom.
In an interview to Times of India, Vikas revealed that he was taking pain medication for an injury he had previously had. The nerve pain had aggravated in his neck during a helicopter stunt due to which he had to take the medications. However, he failed to let the makers know of the same and when they found out, he was disqualified. Vikas said, “The pain killers also increase your heart rate, which while doing stunts can even go higher resulting in major health risks, which even I wasn’t aware of. Yes, I was disqualified from the show and rightfully so. It was a stupid thing to hide the injury. With the telecast I am hearing another round of reprimanding from my mom all over again.”
Vikas surely has been the centre of attention since the time he has been on the show. Rohit Shetty has time and again scolded him for trying to quit the show. This season of Khatron Ke Khiladi has been doing well and has the right mix of contestants. The most loved contestant on the show is Bharti Singh whose humorous banter with Rohit Shetty surely entertains everyone. Other than that, Haarsh Limbachiyaa, Jasmin Bhasin, Zain Imam, S Sreesanth, Punit Pathak, Ridhima Pandit, Avika Gor, Aly Goni and Shamita Shetty are a part of Khatron Ke Khiladi 9.
