Is Rohit Shetty the right choice for Fear Factor?

The man’s name is synonymous with action, but not without safety nets

The makers of Fear Factor have approached Rohit Shetty to be the host of their show. Earlier, Fear Factor has had Bollywood actors like Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra host the previous seasons.

Now we know, Akki has been a success. He is somewhat the perfect candidate for taking contestants through the difficult tasks and giving them a pep talk when they feel demotivated. Being an action star, participants find the confidence they require for the task. With Rohit Shetty at the helm of things, we are sure that the Golmaal director will know the safest way to do a stunt.

However, will Rohit be able to garner the views and numbers that a regular star could very easily provide? There is no doubt that Rohit is the baap of actions – haven’t you seen his Golmaal series and most recent Chennai Express!

Wethinks, the makers are taking a different route, to induce fear in the minds of the celebrity participants. What do you think BolliwoodLifers, will it work?
