First Step on Fear Factor
There's mind-blowing action, death-defying stunts, crazy thrills, hair-raising chills…something Indians have only seen till date in Bollywood films. Fear Factor India– Jo darr gaya so mar gaya, the new action reality show, coming on Sony Entertainment Television, is about watching a Bollywood-style action reality thriller on small screen. Real people from across India, including some of Indian television's busiest & popular stars, will be seen doing real stunts and participating in the local version of the popular American stunt-reality show, Fear Factor. The show, from the top class production house, Endemol International, is about that adrenaline rush…watched from the safe confines of your home! Coming on Sony Entertainment Television from Friday March 10th at 9.00 p.m., after its successful run in countries like USA, Russia, Canada, France, UK, The Netherlands, South Africa, Brazil, Denmark, Norway, Australia, Germany, Sweden, Argentina, Mexico, Malaysia, Fear Factor India– Jo darr gaya so mar gaya is part of the new Friday line –up.

Conquering fear with death-defying stunts that's what Fear Factor India, Jo darr gaya so mar gaya is about. The show, in spite of its international format, has all stunts performed by Indian participants, who also include some of the biggest & brightest actors from Indian television. Though all the participants were selected after rigorous physical & mental tests, even these brave hearts seemed edgy when it came to performing certain stunts. However, this one-hour challenge show is about coming to terms with their fears. Some of the viewers' greatest fears become reality when they see real people put into situations that only trained professionals have been in before. In each of the pulse-racing episodes, these real people compete against themselves and challenge each other in the hope of winning Rs 10 lakhs. The death defying stunts that the contestants take part in are as much a mental struggle as a physical one. The show, promises to offer the viewers unlimited action, death- defying and stomach- crunching challenges never- seen-before on Indian television.

Shot in exotic locales of Kuala Lumpur, where the Indian participants were taken, Fear Factor India-Jo darr gaya so mar gaya, tested its participants with death-defying challenges that they accepted bravely. Apart from ordinary participants who loved the challenge, famous television stars like Vikas Bhalla, Achint Kaur, Rohit Roy, Tina Parekh, Swetha Salve, Mandira Bedi, Nausheen Ali Sardar, Shraddha Nigam, Vikas Sethi, Swetha Kwathra and many more were able to overcome their own fears and delve into their inner strength they never knew existed!

Prior to appearing on the show all contestants had to go thro' a medical check-up and Endemol International has taken all safety measures to safeguard the contestants. The anchor, model-cum-actor Mukul Dev, guides the contestants (3male & 3 female in each episode) to compete for some stomach-churning tasks which involved water endurance (where the contestant will go down with his/her head submerged in water for the longest possible time), lying in a box containing snakes, tight rope walk between skyscrapers, surviving in scorpion-infested pits, climbing off water bikes into helicopter, climbing thro' window panes of high-rise buildings…and several dare-devil & death-defying tasks.

"Sony Entertainment Television has always strived to offer different and unique entertainment options to the viewers. Indian audiences have been exposed to action & stunts only in Bollywood movies, but with Fear Factor India, Jo darr gaya so mar gaya, we are bringing never-seen-before breath-taking stunts straight into the drawing rooms, performed by our own people (not experts), to millions of television viewers all over the country," said N. P. Singh, COO, SET India Pvt. Ltd. commenting on the launch of the action-reality show.

Join in the adrenaline rush as gutsy participants from India take part in Fear Factor India, Jo darr gaya so mar gaya, a show that promises to take viewers close to experiencing and feeling the breath-taking action they have only seen on big screen. The show actually gets the viewers jittery as they sense the fear in the competitors. In Fear Factor India—Jo darr gaya so mar gaya, the winner takes it all—no consolation prizes. With the huge prize money of Rs. 10 lakh to be won in each episode, this show represents gold standards (international bench mark in action programming) of action- reality programming in over 100 countries
