Nikki Tamboli chose to honour her professional commitment and fly to Cape Town to shoot for Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 just days after she lost her brother Jatin. However, she went through a lot of emotional struggles while filming.
In a new interview, Nikki Tamboli revealed that she was ‘dying from inside’ as she performed her first Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 stunt less than two weeks after her brother’s death.
“Every day, there was a low moment for me because 4th (May) my brother went and on the 13th we were shooting for our episodes. And on the 13th itself, I performed my first stunt. So obviously, it was worst for me because I was dying from inside. And I am not that mature that I can control everything,” she told Times Now.
Nikki lost her elder brother, Jatin, to Covid-19 complications. She decided to go ahead with her participation in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 because she felt that it is what he would have wanted.

Earlier in May, Nikki slammed trolls for trying to shame her for ‘enjoying’ in Cape Town, soon after a death in her family. “…Let me tell you idiots that I also have my life, I also deserve to be happy if not for myself for my brother as he loves when I stay happy and these people who have no work but only have time to comment and spread negativity I would request you to go and achieve your dreams it will make you and your parents and your loved ones happy too,” she wrote on Instagram.
Nikki, who has worked in south films such as Chikati Gadilo Chithakotudu and Kanchana 3, shot to fame when she participated in Bigg Boss 14. She finished as the second runner-up of the reality show hosted by Salman Khan.
