Why did Kushal Tandon accept Fear Factor-Khatron Ke Khiladi 5?

Kushal was last seen in the high voltage reality show Bigg Boss 7

TV actor Kushal Tandon, who declared his love for model-turned-actor Gauahar Khan on the reality show Bigg Boss 7, says he doesn’t want to keep his relationship under the wraps. No, why should I hide about my relationship with anyone? I proposed to Gauahar on national television and I love her, so there is nothing to hide. Pyaar kiya toh darna kya!(If you love someone, why to be afraid),” said Kushal. “I met a girl on a reality show and fell in love with her. Everyone saw it, so why should I lie about it or hide it,” he added.

The 28-year-old is participating with his girlfriend Gauahar in action-adventure show Khatron Ke Khiladi and 10 other celebrities. He says it will be “fun” to do the show, which will air on Colors. “I accepted the show because it will be fun. I will get to do so many adventurous things and I will get to spend time with Gauahar too. I am really looking forward to it,” he said.

When asked about his fear, he said: “I am scared of reptiles. I don’t like lizards and snakes. If I get something to do with these I will just pass it.” “I will not pass it, but I can’t say now how I am going to react to it. I can do things related to water and heights, but I really have this fear of reptiles,” he added.

Apart from Bigg Boss 7, Kushal has been part of TV show Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai and celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye 5. When asked if he would concentrate on fiction shows in future, he said: “Right now, I am focusing on my Bollywood debut. I can’t say much about it now, but it will be out by the end of 2014 or in 2015.”
