During one of the tasks, Kushal suffered an injury to his shoulder and had to seek medical help.
Despite the injury, Kushal not only completed the task but also won the stunt. This task was for episode eight of Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi.
However doctors advised him not to take further risk. As such, Kushal had to quit the show after eight episodes.
Kushal had not lost a single task during those eight episodes, and was not even nominated throughout his journey in Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi.
However, even after quitting the show, Kushal stayed back in Cape Town where the show was being shot, so that he could be with Gauhar.
During the shoot, Gauhar and Kushal were seen to be inseprable. Their chemistry had began in an earlier reality show Bigg Boss 7, where the couple met for the first time and fell in love instantaneously.
The speculation that the couple were romancing for camera and to earn votes in Bigg Boss 7 were proven wrong, as Kushal proposed to Gauhar on the show, and she accepted his love.
When Kushal was evicted from Bigg Boss 7 for violence, Gauhar too walked out of the show. Giving in to her popularity, the show hosts invited Gauhar back in the show in less than two days. Kushal joined her a few days later.
Adding interesting dynamics to the real-life plot was the entry of Ajaz Khan, we created a love-triangle in the mix. Gauhar Khan, who went on to win Bigg Boss 7, did not mince words in expressing her disapproval of Ajaz Khan.
Their animosity continued even after Bigg Boss 7 as the three of them expressed their strong opinions in the media. The fire was equally visible during the shoot of Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi in South Africa, where Kushal threatened to walk out of the show if Ajaz was a participant.
It was only after the show host Rohit Shetty reportedly intervened that the tempers calmed down.
Both Gauhar and Kushal were the key drawing card of big boss season 7 and it seems they will be the charm of Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi.
The show, which goes on air on Colors from 22 March, has other well-known names from the Bollywood as well as television industry including Karanvir Bohra, Mugdha Godse, Ranveer Shorey and Nikitin Dheer.
