Apparently, the actor had to turn down a reality show offer due to his commitment for director Shankar's magnum opus.
It has been a rather fantastic year for actor Akshay Kumar. He has given a series of hits this year like Baby, Gabbar is back and Brothers. The icing on the cake was that the Khiladi bagged a role in Rajinikanth starrer Enthiran 2/Robot 2, the upcoming sequel to the 2010 epic Enthiran. Shankar is directing the movie and he also directed Enthiran, so it makes for quite an entrance in Kollywood for Akshay Kumar.
Other than his brilliant acting prowess and ability to give blockbusters consistently, Khiladi Kumar has also played his role as a TV show host quite successfully. Several reality shows anchored by him have been a resounding success such as Khatron ke Khiladi, Masterchef India and Dare 2 Dance. Since he has a successful stint as a TV show host, it is rumored that he was offered yet another opportunity to host another dance reality show. But it seems that he turned it down as his schedule is packed with Enthiran 2 and he has committed himself to the film. So he didn't find dates to host the show.
Looks like Akshay chose Shankar's magnum opus over the TV show since it is such a tremendous opportunity. Apparently, Akshay's role was offered to other big actors like Kamal Hassan, Aamir Khan and even Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the role ultimately went to the Bollywood action hero. We all really look forward to see Akshay's face off with the Superstar in Enthiran 2/Robot 2 next year.
