One of the reasons to join the show was to explore other sports. Of course, I asked my family, my father, they said it’s up to me if I wanted to do the show. Sisters said that you must not say no to any stunt no matter what.”But turned out things didn’t go as planned. Geeta had to say NO to performing certain stunts.DIDN’T WANT TO ATTEMPT CERTAIN STUNTS”There are things that I haven’t done since my childhood. And I don’t do those things whatever might be the consequences. In Khatron Ke Khiladi, I felt that I shouldn’t do a certain stunts, and I refused to do them. You will know the details only once you watch the show,” she smiles.advertisementYES, I FELT SCARED; I CRIED”I didn’t fear the stunts, but there were certain things that happened due to which I felt scared, I cried. But then again, I can’t share much details about it,” she adds.I DIDN’T HANG OUT WITH OTHERS”I never used to go out, party or hang out with other people. I can understand that nearly all of them are TV stars and they are used to partying and going out. They used to ask me on all off days, if I wanted to go out with them, but I always used to tell them ki aaj neend poori karni hai, ek hi din ka rest mila hai,” she smiles, adding, “but I’m really lucky to have worked with all of them; they all were very supportive and very nice.”MY HUSBAND GETS IRRITATED WHEN I TALK ABOUT KKK”Life after marriage has been good. Earlier we used to talk over phone, now we stay together. And it helps that we are from the same field. We talk about wrestling mostly. But after doing Khatron Ke Khiladi, I talk about the show all the time and that has got my husband irritated. He says that these talks disturb him.”NO SATISFACTION IN DOING TV SHOWSMeanwhile, Geeta is looking forward to going back to what she loves the most–wrestling from this Monday. The wrestler admits that she wants to stay away from the limelight as much as possible and wants the promotional activities to end soon. “There’s no satisfaction in this life. The satisfaction that I get from wrestling is unparalleled.”last_img
