Dheeraj Dhoopar to Tejasswi Prakash: 5 actors who quit reality shows midway due to health issues

Reality shows have always grabbed the attention of audiences. Over the years, the masses have witnessed several unique concepts in reality shows. Be it Rohit Shetty-hosted Khatron Ke Khiladi or Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss, the reality genre has consistently managed to show engaging content. While several shows give the public to showcase their talent and help them to boost their career, many shows rope in popular celebs who leave no stone unturned to entertain the masses. Also, there have been times when these celebs ended their journey on reality shows owing to serious health issues.

Let us look at celebs who quit reality shows midway owing to health issues:

Dheeraj Dhoopar was a part of the ongoing reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 10. The actor left the show three weeks after it went on air. Dheeraj had to quit the dance reality show due to medical reasons. He earlier shared that he has several bruises and injuries right from the first rehearsals.

However, she slipped, lost her balance, and fell in the front from 10 feet from the ground. She landed on her hands and had hurt both her hands, and the joint of her right wrist was fractured, while the left elbow bone was chipped. Pooja had also sprained a ligament in her left leg. After her exit, she was hospitalised for several days and later recovered.
