Bollywood's 'khiladi' Akshay Kumar will return as the host of action-adventure show "Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi", according to reliable sources.

Instead of considering other names to take over as the host of the show, the channel, Colors, has decided to wait for Akshay to get a little free.

"The main problem was Mr.Akshay Kumar's dates. He is busy with his films all of 2013. Initially, we thought we would go ahead with someone else. But the general opinion is, no one can take Akshay's place in 'Fear Factor'. So we're willing to wait until he gets free in 2014," said a channel source.

The channel officials are said to have had a long, deep discussion with Akshay, who initially insisted they go with someone else and not wait for him. However, the officials had no problems in waiting for him.

"Our bandwidth for reality shows is filled for the next one year. We had two options: do we go ahead with 'Fear Factor' without Akshay in 2013? Or do we wait for him to do the show in 2014? We decided on the latter option," said the source.

Meanwhile, the actor awaits the release of his film "Khiladi 786 - Made in Punjab".
