In Khatron Ke Khiladi 6Khatron Ke Khiladi season 6 seems to be a party for good looking people. Handsome lad Harshad Arora was seen doing difficult stunts in the series. Now he has got eliminated from the show.
He said, "It was a great experience. I loved Cape Town and the contestants, they were really good. Shooting with Rohit Shetty has been a great experience. We had a great amount of support and safety crew with us. I think it was my bad luck because I was there in every stunt but it's something which is not in your control. I would definitely love to be a part of Khatron Ke Khiladi again if I would ever get a chance in future."
