KKK 4 promotional music video (Slideshow)
THE MUSIC VIDEO: Akki's maniacal laughter sets the pace. The battle cry through music depicts the heightened level of risk in KKK 4. Through the song's lyrics and the video's look, one can get a fair idea of the kind of physically and mentally challenging tasks set for the contestants.
WHEN IT AIRS: May 9 onwards. The show airs in June.
THE LYRICS: Khatra Kabhi Bolke Nahi aata hai ¦ Jaaiye bhi toh luat ke aata hai.. Sabko harake ¦ Torchaar ko karke par banega koi Thunderstar ¦
THE LOCATION: The music video has been shot against a musty and deserted area with broken metal, sparks, damp surroundings that give out a distinctly eerie and dangerous feeling.
THE LOOK: The contestants are dressed in hot pants, leather jackets and boots in dark colors. To add to the clothes, they sport smoky eyes that speak of impending danger and lusciously painted lips that depict their determination to overcome those dangers.
THE KHATRA: As the props used in the video included binding chains and hand cuffs that had girls restrained to walls and metal pipes trying to escape their metal clothes; most of the contestants ended up with bruises on their wrists...fitting battle scars, we say!
THE MISHAPS: Poonam Pandey tripped over a piece of metal and hurt her high-heeled ankle. Former captain of the Indian women's cricket team Anjum Chopra found herself feeling very uncomfortable in the surroundings, a challenge she had not expected to encounter.
THE SURPRISES: Anjum just might turn out to be the weakest contender on the show. But Smita Bansal, whom we are used to seeing wearing a lehenga and being a docile and submissive daughter-in-law on television, turned out to be a real tigress on the sets of the music video. She not only sizzled in her new look but also managed to give some sexy expressions.
