By Madhup Yadav , Chandigarh : It’s not necessary that every dream is fulfilled. Same is the case with Bollywood cutie Nauheed Cyrusi who initially wanted to be an air-hostess but after doing ads and modeling for about 3 years, she decided of being a part of the film industry. After moving down to Bollywood, Nauheed did Lakeer, Anwar, Life Mein Kabhi Kabhi and this year Kisaan. Recently Nauheed has performed stunts in Colors show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ level 2. During a chit chat with her, she shares some his scary experiences with us.
What is your biggest fear?
I am petrified of crocodiles and alligators and I’ve not yet overcome my phobia.
What you say about creepy crawlies like snakes, lizards, worms, cockroaches and all?
I find snakes very interesting and amazing creatures that I love very much. Tiny lizards freak me out but the big ones are fun to watch. Worms are okay, even I don’t like them but I’m also not scared of them. I hate cockroaches allot & I will kill any and every cockroach I see!
Did you ever face any particular scary situation? Earlier, I performed a stunt on an airplane in Khatron Ke Khiladi-Level 2 which was quite tricky and I got really scared. When I put my fingers out, I realized the gravity in the air. At that moment, I was really petrified.
What happens when you feel scared?
I try to calm myself down. I take control of myself. My Heart starts beating fast. I get more alert and concentrate much better whenever gets scared.
Why did you joined this show KKK?
Being the biggest fan of this show I have watched all the episodes this show. In real life, I’m quite an adventurous person who loves skydiving.
What you do to overcome your fear?
Whenever there is a new situation, every time I thought of doing it. I am that person who even scared of taking a flights but this show has made me realize that I am a stronger person.
How did you prepare yourself both physically & mentally?
I had never prepared myself physically and never worked on it. But I make sure that I slept well and to prepare mentally, I watched a lot of earlier episodes of Fear Factor.
If you had to tell the viewers about Akshay Kumar, then how would you describe him?
He is stunning! He’s way better off screen – witty, genuine, approachable and very fit. He is coming back with a punch and no one can do the hosting better than him.
Do you believe that KKK Level 2 is an ultimate test of facing your fears?
Of course! I didn’t want it till the end but now I feel sad b’coz when I wake up, I have no tasks & stunts to do.
Any expectations from this show?
It had made me come face to face with my fears. I have become a strong person. It has changed my life for the better.
