All praise for the host of the show, Shiv told ETimes TV, “I have been following Rohit Sir’s line for a long time. It is ‘sau rupaye mein hazaar ka kaam karo (if you get Rs 100, you do work that’s worth Rs 1000)’.”Shiv exclusively spoke to ETimes TV and shared more about his participation in the show and visit to the temple. He said, “Koi bhi nayi cheez hum karte hai toh hum Bappa ko milke hi karte hain start. Mein akela hi nahi jitne log hai woh nayi shuruat Bappa ko milne ke baad hi karte hai. Mein Bappa ki wajah se hi yahan tak pahuncha hun. Bigg Boss ho, Roadies ho, ya ab Khatron Ke Khiladi bhi Bappa ka blessing hai mujhe par. (Whenever I start anything new, it’s always with Bappa. Not just me, others do the same. It’s due to Bappa’s blessings that I have reached so far be it Bigg Boss, Roadies or KKK). That’s why people love me. I always say money is not as important as blessings and I always get it from here.”Shiv revealed how his mother got worried when she first heard about his participation. “I am meeting Bappa to take care of me from keede makode saanp vaanp. My aai (mother) is scared. She asked my why I am going to a show where there are keede makaude. I told her not to worry. I have met Bappa and asked him to to grant me strength to fight like a warrior.”Talking about his preparation, the actor said, “Jaise exam ki taiyaari kabhi nahi hoti last moment tak waise hi Khatron Ke Khiladi ki taiyaari nahi hogi. I am excited yet nervous. Rohit Shetty is going to be like a Principal. Contestants share a great bond with him and he always motivates them for the tasks.”Shiv also revealed, “I am going outside India for the first time, that too for a show. I used to watch this show at home and now I am a part of it, it’s a big thing for me.” Shiv expressed gratitiude to his fans for loving him unconditionally and said that he’d do everything to keep their trust in him.At the temple, Shiv also obliged his fans with selfies and offered sweets to people.
