Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 8 23 September 2017 Review: Lopamudra Raut, Shantanu Maheshwai And Rithvik Dhanjani Receive The Fear Funda In The Family Special Episode
Last week, we saw how Nia Sharma qualified to become the first finalist of Khatron Ke Khiladi 8. This week is the final week of the show. Today’s semi finale episode put us at the edge of our seats as the names of the next finalists were revealed. Today’s show began with Rohit Shetty surprising all contestants by calling their relatives over. Given that Nia had already qualified to become the finalist, Rohit Shetty sent her and her brother off to explore Spain, while the others began preparing for the next round with their loved ones.
So the first task entailed the contestants to rescue their family members from a box filled with roaches by handling them the key within the first 4 minutes. In order, to get the keys, the contestants were expected to pick the marbles from their mouth and put it in a box. The contestants who were selected to perform this stunt were: Lopa Mudra and her sister Bhagyashree Raut, and Ravi Dubey and his wife Sargun Mehta. First, Lopamudra and sister went on to do the task. She began the stunt confidently and got the keys within the stipulated time to rescue her sister from a box filled with roaches. Next, Ravi Dubey had to do the same thing. He too followed suit and confidently completed the task within the given frame of time. While Lopamudra completed the stunt in 2 minutes and 19 seconds, Ravi wrapped the stunt within 2 minutes, thereby winning the round to become the next finalist.
In the next task, contestants had to rescue their loved ones from an explosion by assembling a detonator with a crowbar. Hina Khan and Shantanu Maheshwari were selected for this task. While Hina had to save her rumoued boyfriend Rocky Jaiswal, Shantanu had to save his brother Shashank. Both began the task but Hina was able to assemble the detonator thereby winning the task. Thus Shantanu joined Lopamudra, the two contestants who were defeated by their competitors in their respective tasks. They two thus received the fear fundas.
The team is then joined by Bhoomi father-daughter duo stars, Sanjay Dutt and Aditi Rao Hydari on the sets. Karan Wahi and Rithvik Dhanjani dress up like ‘Circuit’ from Munnabhai MBBS to entertain. Both Sanjay and Aditi indulge in a fun activity which requires them to burst balloons by hitting them on each other’s heads. Following the activity the two leave the sets wishing the participants all the very best for the stunts ahead.
For the next stunt, Rithvik represented the Boys team, where as Monica Dogra represented the girl team. They had to compete with each other in the task. While Rithvik had to rescue his mate, Karan, Monica had to rescue Shibani Dandekar. Both contestants have to save their buddies by unlocking them from a glass box submerged in water. Rithvik went in to do the task first and was successful in unlocking one of the locks. However, due to misunderstanding between Karan and Rithvik the stunt had to be aborted. Then came the girls’ turn. Even Monica was successful in unlocking one of the locks but was unable to do the second one as Shibani Dandekar aborted the stunt.
Given both of them aborted the stunt, the time they took to do so was checked. While Karan Wahi aborted the task in 47 seconds, Shibani aborted it in 57 seconds. Since Monica unlocked the lock and removed it first, she won the task, resulting in Rithvik joining Shantanu and Lopamudra in getting the fear funda. The episodes ended with Hina Khan singing Lag Ja Gale in her beautiful melodious voice for which Rohit Shetty gave her a gift. Stay tuned to this space as we keep you updated about the finale episode tomorrow. Who do you think will win this season? Let us know in the comments’ section below.
