Kirron Kher suffers from katsaridaphobia — the morbid and irrational fear of cockroaches.
The actress, who is one of the judges on the reality show 'India’s Got Talent', had to run for cover after seeing cockroaches on the set.
One of the contestants, Nishant Jain, displayed his talent by putting his head into a box of cockroaches.
During the act, however, he hastily removed his head from the box, resulting in hundreds of cockroaches from the box making their way on the stage.
Seeing them, Kirron made a dart towards the exit and in the rush the border of her sari got torn.
