Audiences have always been drawn to reality television. The general public has seen several original themes in reality shows over the years. The reality genre has always produced exciting content, whether on Salman Khan's Bigg Boss or Khatron Ke Khiladi with Rohit Shetty as the presenter. While some shows allow viewers to display their skills and advance their careers, many shows also feature well-known celebrities who go over and above to amuse audiences. Additionally, some stars have occasionally quit appearing on reality series due to major health problems.
Let's highlight celebrities that left reality shows in the middle due to health problems:
