Reality shows can be dangerous at times especially when the show itself is named as 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'! It is season nine of the show and by now all the fans know the kind of stunts are performed here by the celebs. From water, air stunts to involvement of creepy creatures, everything has to be dealt with by the contestants. During the shoot of the latest season, contestants Vikas Gupta and Aditya Narayan had to face the brunt of the format. While Vikas was bitten by a python snake during an attempt of saving co-contestant Bharti Singh. Also recently, Aditya Narayan too injured his eye.

"During one of the stunts, Aditya fell and injured his eye. He was rushed to the hospital and has been advised a week’s rest. On another instance, a python was going to attack contestant Bharti Singh. Vikas tried to save her and was bitten by the snake. He was given a few injections and has been asked to take some time out to recover,” a source told DNA.

The source further added, "The team is currently shooting in Argentina. And unlike other seasons, it seems this time the crew is finding it difficult to ensure proper safety measures for all the contestants." Other reports also suggest that host Rohit Shetty is upset with the incident wants extra safety measures on the sets of KKK9. Meanwhile, Shamita Shetty recently resumed to shoot for the episode soon after recovering from Dengue.
