KHATRON KE KHILADI 5: Ajay Devgn, not Akshay Kumar, to host the show

The Bol Bachchan actor has been reportedly signed on for the reality show

After hosting three seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi (Priyanka Chopra hosted one, remember?), Akshay Kumar will step back from season 5. Ajay Devgn will reportedly host the adventure reality show in his stead. The producers had approached John Abraham too, but since he has no dates to spare, they finalised on Ajay. The Bol Bachchan actor has returned to his action image with Singham and he suits the theme of the show too. Ajay is known for doing his own stunts ever since his Phool Aur Kaante days. It’ll be the perfect way for the Bollywood actor to enter the world of television. Though Ajay has appeared in a few TV shows, and even been a mentor for a couple of episodes of Emotional Atyachaar, this will be his first full length stint on television. We are eager to see how well he handles the demands of reality TV.

It’s a huge win for Colors too, the channel that airs KKK. Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Madhuri Dixit Nene are already a part of Colors, and Ajay’s coming on board will strengthen its market value, which is already augmented by the new deal with Eros, by which new and forthcoming releases will be screened exclusively on Colors in India.

For those who came in late, Akshay’s exit from KKK has nothing to do with Ajay. The Khiladi refused to be a part of the adventure reality show because his wife is due to deliver their second child in a few months from now – which is when the show’s producers want to shoot season 5. Understandably, Akshay wants to be with Twinkle during that time. We wish both Akshay and Ajay the very best.
