Shabbir Ahluwalia will be the "partner-in-crime" with Preity Zinta on Colors' Guinness World Record Ab India Todega starting tomorrow. The rough and tough actor who was crowned the Khatron ka Khiladi last year will be encouraging the contestants to break records. While he will manage all the action in the outdoor records, Preity will be in the studio.
I had just taken a break in between because I had to set up my production company after which Khatron Ke Khiladi happened. These are things I like to do as I like adventure, thrill. The feeling of being on the edge keeps you pushing a little further. This show happened now, so there is no way I am trying to stay away.
You have been a participant and now you will motivate others. Which is easier?
Obviously, encouraging is a lot more easy (laughs). It's like being a commander who orders you to go and fight but when you take part you are required to be brave as you do not know what's going to happen next? They are like two different things, if you see KKK and if you had to participate in it you wouldn't know what you'd be doing the next day. But, Guinness World Records is a show where people come to break records. And try a task that they have been doing for a long period of time in their life. They make a record on the basis of that talent.
Taking part is far more exciting and encouraging is easy for it just takes a few words to encourage someone. So the real heroes are the ones participating.
How is Preity as a co-host?
She is incredibly amazing as she is one of the spunkiest actresses in Bollywood. Her energy just rubs off on you. I have shot for very few days but the amount of screen space I have shared with her has been good for she has this amazing comfort level. She is an amazing co-host and a fantastic host.
How do you rate yourself as a host?
It's up to others to rate me.
Any contestant who has stayed in your mind in the record breaking process till now?
It's incredible to see these people break records so it's very difficult to forget them. They are making a world record and it's not a show where a scene gets over and you forget it. So these people are here to stay and become part of history.
Did you try breaking any records with the contestants?
I did try to do a lot of things like when they were setting up this heaviest pull thing I did go and try pulling the truck but it did not move.
Have you ever thought about making a record?
Yes. I want to make a record in sleeping. I want to break Kumbhakaran's record. He used to sleep for six months but I want to sleep for 12. On a serious note, I haven't thought about it. I like challenges and if someone gives me a chance to try my hand at breaking their record I will try. But I just hope it's not dangerous.
Have you tried breaking any records career wise?
In my career, I haven't made any records but I do keep breaking and setting records otherwise. As when I do something I do it from my heart. It's not that I take something for one year or five but when I take up a thing I put my heart and soul into it and finish it well. I am a good finisher but not a good planner!
Is anyone designing your clothes for this show?
The thing is every time I have a designer, I ask them to cut my clothes from different places; and they all leave me and go to save their reputation.
You have been acting and doing reality shows all this while but what do you like more?
Both are different. Acting helps you prepare so it's good but I like reality because it's easy.
Have things changed after Khatron Ke Khiladi?
Yes, the moment people see me they say things like 'yeh toh khatron ke khiladi hai na' and kids tell me 'stunt karo na uncle'. Earlier people asked me to say one dialogue but now they ask for a stunt.
Now I have started taking things differently in my life. I have learnt to take challenges in the right way. I have learnt a lot from the sportsmen in KKK. They always have this killer instinct and never say die attitude that helps you focus and approach things differently.
Career wise which way are you heading?
I would want to act, produce and play throughout my life. I love sports so till my legs work I will play after which I will do films and serials throughout my life.
Is anything happening on the film front?
It's too soon to talk about it. There is something I like but I can't talk till it happens from both the fronts.
Any new shows coming up as a producer?
Working, it's a dog's life!
You are busy all the time so where does it leave time for love and romance?
Only on screen (laughs).
Are you planning to tie the knot?
No, am not.
