Rohit Shetty will be back on Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made in India this weekend. He took a a break for few episodes during which Farah Khan hosted the show. Incidentally, this time it is his charity rather than the appearance that is making news. According to reports, the actor will be paying a portion of his remuneration from Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made in India to the financially-stressed cine workers.
He will use the paycheck from this work to help cine employees. These will include junior artists, light men, stuntmen, background dancers, etc. Rohit will directly send the amount to the accounts of these cine employees to ensure that it reaches the right people. According to reports, the famous producer-director even helped many Bollywood photographers who did not have any work during the lockdown.

We recently met up with #rohitshetty and we requested him for few pictures but we wanted something to match his persona and his energy. So he did this fo us 🙏🔥 Rohit Shetty who has started the shoot of the new season of Khatron Ke Khiladi – Made In India from Sunday, is all set to use his work as a way to support many cine employees such as the Junior Artists, Background Dancers, Stunt Men, Light Men etc. by directly sending money to the accounts of these individuals as a portion of his remuneration from the show. The filmmaker has been trying to do his bit to support the cine workers from the beginning of the lockdown by making his contribution to Film Federation (FWICE) & the photographers who were homebound due to the lockdown caused by the Pandemic. Yes we have become his army now as he even helped our boys during pandemic. Also hear what @ashokepandit1 has to say about his contribution 🙏👍
Rohit has been donating money since the lockdown to the cine employees and has won their hearts. The Golmaal director has already kick-started the shooting for the upcoming episodes of Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made in India. Usually, the show is shot in some exotic locations abroad. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the makers have come up with the made in India concept.
This installment of Kahtron Ke Khiladi is a bit different from the other previous seasons. It is because it includes participants who were a part of the earlier shows. Those who are a part of Khatron Ke Khiladi: Made in India include Rithvik Dhanjani, Karen Patel, Karen Wahi, Harsh Limbachiyaa, Jay Bhanushali, Jasmin Bhasin, Aly Goni, and Nia Sharma.
