Handsome hunk, Aly Goni, currently seen in Colors adventure show, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, really enjoyed his bit with this Rohit Shetty hosted show. “I had been approached last year as well but had chickened out. This year when they returned, I had a word with a few of my friends (Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi) who had also taken part before and they all egged me on to take a leap of faith. I am glad I did for it turned out be quite a unique experience,” says this Kashmiri lad who loves to take part in bike and car rallies.
“Among all the tasks, I was a bit fearful of height and water, being more of a terra firma guy. Grappling with insects also was yuck. Their bites were painful but luckily adequate medical care was provided.”
One thing which is surely common to all KKK seasons is the camaraderie among the contestants. “We all (Bharati Singh, Aditya Narayan, Vikas Gupta and Zain Imam) really bonded well and pushed each other to challenge our fears. No one was a loner and we spent time in each other’s rooms.”
Aly has always been lucky to have been a part of chart-busting shows. “First it was Ye Hai Mohabbatein, then Naagin and now one of the expensive reality format shows, KKK, which has not become the numero uno show but has broken records of all previous seasons. It obviously feels nice to be part of popular properties.”
For the moment, Aly is not part of YHM, “I am now looking for juicy projects across all mediums.”
He will also not be part of Sony show, Dil Hi Toh Hai, which moves to stand alone digital. He had an extended cameo in it. “Like I said above, I am in search of something fresh. I am giving myself a month before signing on something new.” He is also open to trying his hand at web series, “which give full freedom to actors to showcase their wares.”
