“Talks were on with Divyanka for quite some time and the deal has finally materialised. She has come on board with us to participate in the 11th edition. This is the first time television’s popular bahu, Divyanka, will be performing hardcore stunts on a reality show,” Times of India quoted a source as saying.
Divyanka was recently seen hosting TV show Crime Crime. Apart from this, the actress has been seen as a lead actress in popular daily soaps like ‘Banoon Main Teri Dulhan’ and ‘Ye Hai Mohabbatein’.

Talking about his preparation, Arjun tells IANS: “I have already started preparing for it because I want to win and take that award home. To be fully equipped, I am going through a regular training regime. Along with physical exercise, I am also working on mental strength because it is very important to keep your mental balance while doing any stunts”.
