The Dhoom 3 actor, speaking to Times of India, said, “Lately people have been asking me if I am doing the show or not. I’d like to tell everyone that I will be doing Khatron Ke Khiladi someday, but not this year. As much as I’d like to do the show, now is not the right time. So you might see me doing KKK in the coming years because I love the format and I would love to be part of the show.”

Stating the reason for his rejection, Siddharth said, “I have a couple of projects that I am in talks for and I will have to be present physically here for the discussion. So it was not possible for me to cancel all my commitments at the last minute and hence I had to let go of the reality show this year. If they offer me the show next year, I will definitely take it up.”
