What can we say about Mohit Malik these days, apart from drooling over how amazingly he has been performing his stunts in Khatron Ke Khiladi 12?
The actor has rightfully progressed in the show by conquering his fears time and again, most importantly that of being at a height. And while Mohit’s latest stunt did not require him to be suspended very high up above ground level, it did involve a considerable amount of height, combined with other factors like 2 trucks, a tight role, flags, speed and Rohit Shetty. And what’s more… Mohit won the stunt and lots of applause too.
“This was a very very important stunt for me, a very difficult one, very challenging. I think this was one of the key stunts on the road to winning Khatron Ke Khiladi 12. And I am so glad that I not only completed it, but also won it.”
Recalling the stunt, Mohit revealed,
“What really helped me was that Rohit Sir was on one of the trucks. He was there, guiding me in his own way, telling me what not to do so that I don’t end up falling. He was there for the entire duration of the stunt, encouraging me. What also helped me along with Rohit Sir’s advice was my habit of focusing on my breath, centring myself and then doing the stunt. You have to be focussed as you do not have any other option. And my way of staying focused, was to focus on my breath and calm myself. That is the way that I have performed all of my KKK12 stunts so far and gotten to the position that I am today, in the competition.”
“I remember after the stunt was completed, I told Rohit Sir that as actors, we are taught to be to be relaxed and then proceed with our scenes. We also have to be in the moment of the scene to feel it and emote. And that was what I did here too. That’s how I completed this stunt- by being in the moment and focusing on my breath. It was a very difficult stunt and I surprised myself by not just completing it but also winning it. This will definitely make it to my list of favourite KKK stunt,” Mohit concluded.
