Phobias: Driving. But I just started taking driving lessons so I am trying to overcome that.
I am a big fan of the show and it's like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. No one gets to do all those crazy stunts in normal life.
On host Akshay Kumar: No one else can fit the show apart from him. He is an amazing taskmaster and I am looking forward to meeting him.

Phobias: I am a total adventure freak and don't really have a phobia. Roadies though was definitely torturous. I try to motivate myself by taking deep breaths and it helps.
On host Akshay Kumar: He is the perfect host.

Phobia: I am scared of everything because I have lived in a protective environment. I am on the show to test myself and overcome my fears. I hope this show will help me to become a stronger person who doesn't fear anything.
On host Akshay Kumar: He is the best host and a lot of fun. I think he will be my lucky charm.

Phobias: I am scared of cockroaches and darkness. Jet skiing in rough waters is something I have attempted before. I am expecting to have an awesome experience on the show.
On host Akshay Kumar: I love the way he does his own stunts and the dedication he has towards his fitness. He has always been my favourite actor ever since we worked together in Aawara Paagal Deewana.

Phobias: I am really scared of going underwater and snakes. My son is a big fan of the show and thinks that his mom is a superwoman and can do all the possible stunts.
On host Akshay Kumar: I don't know him personally. The only connect I have with him is the fact that my son is his biggest fan.

Phobias: I am into sports and that has helped me overcome my inhibitions but extreme limit of anything is scary. For me, playing for my country is the most adventurous thing.
On host Akshay Kumar: He is a great host and a motivating factor to many people.

Phobias: I am scared to be locked in a certain parameter. Also, reptiles. I have not done anything adventurous so far and this show will be a life time experience.
On host Akshay Kumar: He is going to be a motivating factor.

Phobias: Brave people do things even though they are scared. When it comes to overcoming my fear, I will just go for it. The most adventurous activity I have done so far is jumping off a cliff in Canada and crossing the road in Mumbai in peak traffic (laughs).
On host Akshay Kumar: Since he is fit and active, he seems like the perfect host for this kind of a show.
Phobias: I am scared of almost everything, from heights, to water to creepy crawlies. I have never done adventurous activities in my life so I'm looking forward to test myself.
On host Akshay Kumar: He motivates and pushes you to go that extra mile and achieve something.
