An injured and agitated Tanishaa Mukerji almost walks out of a reality show
If gossip mills are to be believed, Tanishaa Mukerji, who is currently shooting for 'Fear Factor — Khatron Ke Khiladi' in Buenos Aires, Argentina, apparently walked out of the reality show after she was badly bruised while performing one of the stunts. However, it was only when the other participants rallied around and encouraged her that she decided to stay back.

For the stunt in question, Tanishaa had to get inside a water tank. The actress is scared of enclosed spaces and thus was scared to perform the task.
Says a source, "Tanishaa hit the sides of the tank and bruised her forehead. To avoid complications, the actress was immediately hauled out of the tank and a doctor was summoned on the set, but she was so shaken that she began crying."
Moreover, grapevine also suggests that Tanishaa feels that as she was part of an earlier season of 'Bigg Boss' on the same channel, the makers are familiar with her fears and are using that to their advantage to scare her.
In another stunt, Tanishaa was asked to sit inside a drawer for some time. "The show may be about overcoming fears, but Tanishaa feels she is deliberately being singled out. The actress has been eating insects and sleeping with snakes, but repeatedly playing on her fear is giving her a panic attack."
Tanishaa remained unavailable for comment.
