Jackie Shroff's daughter and Tiger Shroff's sister Krishna Shroff is going to be seen in 'Khatron Ke Khiladi 14'. There is already a lot of discussion about her. Recently Krishna had a special conversation with 'Presswire 18 Times'. Let us show you.You belong to a filmy family, you must have got film offers, but why did you choose the profession of fitness?
I 100% got film offers and I am fortunate that I could have done that if I wanted to, but I believe life is too short and I want to get up every day and do what makes me really happy. Luckily I come from a family where I was given the freedom to follow my passion, so I kept away from films and chose what I really loved.

You are going to appear before the world on TV screen for the first time, why did you choose Khatron Ke Khiladi for this?
I got the offer of Khatron Ke Khiladi two years ago but I didn't do it because then I was not comfortable presenting myself to the audience. Today I am in a completely different phase of my life where I feel that through this show I will be able to connect with a larger audience. Right now my audience is limited to Instagram only. I feel that through this show people will know me for themselves. They will know me beyond my family. I still have my own identity, especially since I have entered the world of fitness. I am one of the pioneers working in the field of women's fitness. A lot of people who follow me on Insta know me and my work, but their number is very limited. Through this show people from small and mid-sized cities will know me and they are very loyal and supportive. They helped my brother (Tiger Shroff) grow a lot in his career in a very short time, so I will try to win their hearts.

Fame is a double-edged sword. People love you and also troll you. You have been trolled many times for your dressing sense and bold look. How do you deal with it?
Trolls don't affect me, especially where I am in my life right now. I am so secure in myself that nobody else's opinion defines my reality. I am not defined by what people say. My thinking is that if you continue to be a good person, stick to your goals and keep working hard every day to make yourself better than before, one day you will definitely reach where you want to be. I thank both my supporters and trolls because at the end of the day both are adding to my brand value. Then, you can't keep everyone happy. I don't even care about keeping everyone happy. I just want my family to be happy, I don't care who is happy or not. I present my real personality to the world. Whether a third person likes it or not is their problem. I am happy with what I am doing, it is not hurting anyone else and my family is proud, that is enough for me.

Has your attitude towards trolls always been indifferent or have you learned this maturity with time?
No, no, earlier I used to think very differently. When I was growing up, I never wanted to be a public figure. I was an overweight kid. I was very shy and very worried about my looks. If I knew there was media or paparazzi outside, I would not step out until they left. I knew that if my picture came out, people would comment and the internet is a very cruel place. As a young teenager, people's words affect you a lot and it did. I was very sad with people's comments but then I took it positively that maybe I need to work on myself and I got so involved in fitness that I never looked back. Now many of those same trolls say oh my god, you are our inspiration.

What was the reaction of father Jackie Shroff and brother Tiger Shroff on your decision to participate in Khatron Ke Khiladi?
Actually, the world of TV is very different from films. It is very new not only for me but also for my family, but they are very supportive. Tiger was very surprised, he could not believe it until I went for the promo shoot. At the same time, my parents were a little hesitant because I was going away for such a long time for the first time, I was going to come on TV, so they were a little worried but very soon their worry turned into excitement.

Recently your boyfriend Abdul Azim Badakhsh (Afghan MMA fighter who was jailed for beating an Indian fighter) had to go through a very difficult time. How much support did you give him during this difficult time?

Very supportive because for me it is a commitment that must be honoured. For me, whether it is a relationship or work in Khatron Ke Khiladi, I take my commitments very seriously. When I get involved in something, I give it my all. So, I only get involved with someone when I can completely trust them, respect them, be proud of them and I am sure that I can give them my all. This is for both my personal and professional life.
