Week 8 of Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 -Darr Ka Blockbuster saw a whole new level of action with host Rohit Shetty playing sadist. The two episodes this weekend were named 'Torture Days' owing to the nature of the stunts featured in them. Various forms of torture were administered to the participants, leaving them wincing, writhing and screaming out of extreme pain and suffering.
The first stunt of Saturday's episode, 'Pani Pila Pila Ke, involved contestants chained to a mighty looking guillotine, with a continuous and forceful stream of water hitting their head and face. The Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 contestants were required to unchain themselves by opening the lock using their mouth.
Saturday's second stunt was the most torture-inducing one among all the stunts of the week. Contestants were literally reduced to trembles as they were electrocuted while struggling to open a series of locks, and finally shot with a laser gun ejecting an electric hook straight into their backs, giving them seizures. Gurmeet Choudhary, who went first in the stunt, fell on his back, piercing the hook into his flesh and giving him serious injuries.
The third stunt on Saturday's episode of KKK 5 had the unlucky ones buried in dark underground gas coffins, sending them into suffocation. The claustrophobic ones clearly did not appreciate this.
The only lucky contestant this weekend on Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 was Salman Khan, who spent the week sightseeing and bike riding across Cape Town as a result of obtaining the Idea Lifejacket, promoting him directly to the semifinale.
