The most awaited stunt reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 will soon hit the television screens. Interestingly, Rohit Shetty is back as a host, this season. Apparently, the venue has shifted to Spain. The shooting will begin in the last week of April or first week of May.
This time, the makers have roped in many popular celebrities compared to the previous season. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress Hina Khan, Jamai Raja actors Nia Sharma and Ravi Dubey, Bigg Boss ex-contestant Rimi Sen and Bigg Boss 10 winner Manveer Gujjar are among 10 celebrity contestants, who have been approached.
Check out the 10 celebrity contestants who have been approached for this season of KKK...
1. Hina Khan
Hina Khan, who had quit Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, has been approached for KKK 8. A source was quoted by an entertainment portal as saying, "The actress will be on board of the upcoming season of action adventure show Khatron Ke Khiladi." We have seen Hina Khan posting a lot of gym pictures on social media. Is Hina getting ready for KKK 8?
2. Nia Sharma
Jamai Raja actress Nia Sharma has also been approached for the upcoming season of the stunt reality show. The actress has been in news for her sensational videos and pictures that she has been sharing on social media.
3. Ravi Dubey
Nia Sharma's Jamai Raja co-actor Ravi Dubey is also on the list of probable contestant of the stunt reality show.

4. Karan Wahi
Karan Wahi was quoted by the entertainment portal as saying, "I have been approached, and talks are on." He had said that a few days are getting clashed with his shows. Karan was seen hosting Indian Idol. He will also be doing a web-series Barcode.
5. Rithvik Dhanjani
Pavitra Rishta actor Rithvik Dhanjani has also been approached for the stunt reality show. It has to be recalled that his girlfriend Asha had participated in Season 6 of the show. He was last seen hosting Sony TV's Super Dancer. He will also be seen in a new show, Aye Zindagi.
6. Geeta Phogat
Apparently, the makers have managed to rope in India's finest wrestler Geeta Phogat as contestant on board. It is said that the ‘format interested her and thus the deal was cracked'.
7. Rimi Sen
Surprisingly, the makers are in talks with Bigg Boss 9 contestant Rimi Sen. It has to be recalled that Rimi was not interested in doing any tasks on Bigg Boss, we wonder how the makers approached the actress! What do you think - Will Rimi manage to perform dangerous stunts?
8. Manveer Gujjar
Apparently, the makers have managed to rope in Manveer Gujjar, who impressed the audiences with his daredevil acts in the Bigg Boss 10 house for the stunt reality show. He created history by becoming the first commoner to win Bigg Boss. It has to be seen what record he creates in KKK.
9. Shibani Dandekar
Shibani, who was last seen in I Can Do That, has apparently been roped in for the adventure reality show. Shibani is multitalented (Singer, actress, anchor and model). She was seen in Bollywood movies Roy and Shaandaar. She had also participated in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5.
10. Shantanu Maheshwari
Shantanu Maheshwari, who is an amazing dancer, has been approached for the stunt reality show. He has already shown his talent as an actor and dancer, now we are eager to watch him doing dare devil stunts on KKK 8.
Apart from the above mentioned contestants, Bigg Boss 10 contestants Rohan Mehra and Manu Punjabi, Bigg Boss 9 contestants Prince Narula and Yuvika Chaudhary (who are apparently dating) were also approached for the show.
Rohan was also offered Nach Baliye 8. But since he didn't want to take up another reality show, he had rejected the offer. We assume Rohan has also not accepted KKK 8 offer as well, for the same reason.
While Yuvika chose not to respond, Prince was quoted by an entertainment portal as saying, "I've gotten a few calls but haven't spoken to them at length. I will call them back soon."
Prince (as Lakhan Singh Ahlawat aka Lucky), is seen on Badho Bahu Yuvika was last seen on Amma as Rehana Sheikh.
The last season of Khatron Ke Khiladi was hosted by Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor. Sidharth Shukla emerged as the winner of KKK 7.
