Akshay Kumar will be back as Fear Factor host

The channel felt that Akshay Kumar was irreplaceable for Khatron Ke Khiladi, and decided to wait for him till he finishes off his movie commitments

It has taken Akshay Kumar around 20 years and numerous death-defying stunts to earn the moniker Khiladi. And today, when Akki was close to being replaced as the host of Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi, a popular action-adventure show on Colors, it is his reputation that has spared him the fate.

Akshay, who was the original host of the adventure sports-based reality show since 2008, had no dates at all in all of 2013 to shoot for the new season. Akshay was kind enough and even offered to back-out of the project, so that the makers could go with any other hero. But his firmly cemented image as the tough action star came to his rescue, and the channel decided to wait for him to complete his movies, after which they would begin shooting for Fear Factor.

Well, seems like our player has definitely maintained his position as the true khiladi of B-town. Wouldn’t you agree, BollywoodLifers?
