Geeta Phogat Is Highest Paid Contestant In ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 8’

Is the first Indian woman to win gold medal in wrestling, Geeta Phogat, joining the ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 8’ squad? Well, the Olympian wrestler is leaving no stone unturned in her preparation for this season of Colors TV’s adventure reality show.

According to the source of BollywoodLife, “Geeta Phogat is apparently the highest paid celebrity on the show. She is actually getting paid more than popular celebrities like Nia Sharma, Hina Khan, Rithvik Dhanjani and Ravi Dubey, among others.”

Not only is the wrestler earning more bucks than others but also banking on her sheer ability to win the season potentially. She is also being tagged the biggest competitor of Manveer Gurjar, India’s best-loved guy after his win in Bigg Boss 10.

Having wooed the Indian audience in the reality show, now the contestant is taking up the next challenge in Khatron Ke Khiladi 8.

In a chat with BollywoodLife, Manveer said his toughest competition in the show – definitely — is Geeta Phogat.

He says, ”If I see anyone as a competition, it is Geeta Phogat ji. I’m proud of her. I want to see her win, if I don’t win. She has won a gold medal for the country. We are nothing compared to her.”

He added, ”I want to sort things out amicably. Things have happened in the past that I would not like to share but I am trying to work things out with her.”

Ummm… that’s riveting!!

The release of Aamir Khan-starrer, Bollywood film ‘Dangal’, was just the right tonic to fuel the Phogat sisters’ ambitions. Now, the wrestler is set to head to Spain for this season of the show, that will be far more difficult than before.

While the other contestants are pretty much confident, watching Geeta Phogat using her wrestling turns and techniques would definitely be fun.

Apart from Geeta Phogat and Manveer, Lopamudra Raut, Nia Sharma, Karan Wahi, Yuvika Chaudhary, Prince Narula, Ravi Dubey, Shantanu Maheshwari, Shibani Dandekar, Additi Gupta, Hina Khan and Shiny Doshi will also be the part of the show.

So ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ fans, Rohit Shetty will see you in Spain soon.
