Unknown to many, Dayanand suffered from hydrophobia, but this did not deter him from confronting his fear on multiple occasions.

Speaking about his experience on the show, Dayanand said: " Khatron Ke Khiladi has been an amazing experience. For me, it was like getting a medal on my uniform and I am very proud of myself.

"Having Rohit Shetty as an anchor was like a cherry on the cake! I shared a great rapport with all the contestants. My favourite memory, in fact, was my last day on the show where not only all the contestants, but even the crew got emotional on seeing me leave and that meant a lot to me," he added.
