Will Vidyut Jamwal replace Akshay Kumar in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi?

A fleeting rumour suggests that a new face awaits watchers of this adventure reality show on Colors

Akshay Kumar added a perfect rugged toughness to Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi on Colors. Right, aren’t we? But alas, our favourite anchor’s time on this show is over, perhaps. And a saddening buzz suggests that Akki has refused to host the fifth season of FF. Instead, birdies speculate that it might be the martial arts enthusiast Vidyut Jamwal who will take the series ahead.

But what went wrong between AK and Fear Factor? Apparently it was Akshay’s choc-a-block date diary that refused to make space for this adventurous show. Sigh! But let’s not be surprised, ‘coz the action hero does have his plate full with Neeraj Pandey’s directorial Special Chabbis, Anthony D’Souza’s Boss, Ekta Kapoor’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again and the remake of AR Murugadoss’ Thuppakki.

What’s more, rumour mills have also reported that the Fear Factor makers tried to get Ajay Devgn on board, but the Singham star refused, once again, on the pretext of being busy with other commitments.

So does that mean Vidyut Jamwal is the next hunk to host the fifth season Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi? And if so, do you think he will be able to fill in for Akshay Kumar in this show?
