After confirming Akshay Kumar as the host and the anchor to the 4th Season of Khatron Ke Khiladi – Fear Factor, all the thirteen pairs of contestants were introduced in a grand show. The first episode of “Khatron Ke Khiladi” that is scheduled to be aired on July 21, 2008 on Colors channel, will be shot from 18th April in
and is going to be more dangerous and thrilling as Khiladi Kumar will give some very daunting tasks to the contestants. Cape Town, South Africa
While the thirteen female candidates include out of league film actresses like Aarti Chhabria, Kashmera Shah, and the like; the show other candidates include television personalities, veejays, and models like Smita Bansal, Aashka Goradia, Sambhavna Seth, Mauli Dave, Anjum Chopra, VJ Bani, Mia Uyeda, Alesia Raut and Diandra Soares. The scene stealer of this show remains the one-minute-to-fame model Poonam Pandey, who sensationalized the nation with her bold dialogue (and it was just a dialogue) of going bare if the
team wins the world cup. However, the surprise package this season among female contestants is Dina Singh (better known as Vindoo Singh’s wife and Dara Singh’s Daughter in law) who have started showing up on all sorts of shows these days - right from “Maa Exchange” to a cookery show on a new food channel “Food Food”.

According to Colors head of programming Ashvini Yardi, "This season of Khatron Ke Khiladi is going to be way more torturous and dangerous than all the earlier ones... hence the very fitting name Torchaar. We're looking at 13 jodis this season who will be participating in the show and undertaking some of the most physically and mentally challenging tasks ever set on the show. What's going to be of utmost importance this season; along with being able to perform under extreme pressure and dangerous conditions; is the ability of the participants to work together as a team. These 13 pairs can expect to face their worst nightmares as they set foot in the beautiful locales of
. And the participants are going to have to not just build a rapport with their partners, but will have to have enough blind faith and trust in them as well while performing the stunts on the show. Here's wishing them all the luck and hoping to see some brilliant action on the show." South Africa
Endemol India MD Deepak Dhar said, "We constantly strive to bring innovative content to our viewers. Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi is one of our biggest properties and we are excited to present a renewed fourth season. Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi has always kept the viewers at the edge with its death defying stunts and this time with an integrated partnership with Thums-up, we are confident that it is going to be country's most watched show."
The introduction show of the thirteen pairs of contestants, took off on an action packed note with all the 13 pairs walking the ramp as the host for the evening Shabbir Ahluwalia kept the crowd in splits with his witty punch lines. However, the host of this season Khiladi (Akshay) Kumar kept away from this introduction party. No doubt that the winner of this novel drama and adventure integrated show will receive a fantastic cash prize but the icing on the cake this time is an unbeatable opportunity to act with Akshay in a promising ad. No guesses that the ad will be for the sponsors of the show - Thums Up.
(Corrigendum: We did mention in our earlier news article that Gladrags Contestant Arnav Singh is one of the contestants to this show. It seems that the information we received was just a rumour. We regret for the same)
