Television actress Rupali Ganguly says she did many things for the first time in the forthcoming adventure reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi - Level 2, including wearing a swimsuit. But she is now worried how she will look on screen.

"I have done a lot of firsts in my life with this show. Like I have never ever worn a swimsuit on television. But I have finally done that also. I don't know how terrible I'll be looking," Rupali told IANS over the phone from Mumbai.

The actress, who was seen in shows like "Sanjeevani" and "Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai", has completely surprised herself with the sort of stunts she has performed on the second season of "Khatron Ke Khiladi".

"Khatron Ke Khiladi- Level 2" will be hosted by Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and will go on air on Colors channel on Sep 7.

"I've never had an adventurous streak in me. I was boring as a child and I never did anything that I have done on the show. It's been the biggest high of my life," said Rupali, who also participated in Sony TV's reality show "Bigg Boss".

The actress says "Khatron Ke Khiladi..." provided her an opportunity to explore herself as a person. But she had her reservations about being in the company of models like Carol Gracias, Jesse Randhawa and Sushma Reddy.

"I could never imagine taking up a show like this but it's the result of an effort to do something different. The show has given me a chance to explore myself as a person in the sense that I now know how I will react in a given situation. I was initially very confused whether to say yes or no to the show because of these sexy tall babes, but it's been a very exciting experience," she said.

Talking about her experience with claustrophobia, she said: "I am not really scared of living creatures so that bit of the show was fine. But I was unhappy about facing claustrophobia. I was required to hold my breath and be under water for a task - and I am totally petrified of doing something like that. I am glad I faced it but haven't really overcome it."

The actress is hardly seen in any soaps these days. "Something interesting keeps coming, but it has to be very different for me to take it up. Till then, I am happily jobless."
