, were doing rounds around both Bollywood and Tellydom. But, here to give a the rumors a rest is B-town
's original khiladi
, Akshay Kumar
. Yes, Akki is to keep hold of his role as host of Fear Factor
buzz is to be believed, he has also agreed to chop down his
for the adventurous show. It has been said that hosting this show, which
was being eyed by Sallu for quite a while now, had almost become a
prestige issue for Akki. Hence why the stunts lover agreed to host this
season at a much lower price.
to put a halt to all those thinking of this as another 'rumor', the promo of the
show has already been shot and has been aired on the channel Colors as well.
is happy the channel finalized on him, the feat would not have been as
easy if it hadn't been for his son Aarav Initially, the show was slated
to be shot sometime around
August this year, but was pushed a little ahead of it's schedule to the
last week of April; and
that is where the problem precisely lies.
this time, Akki usually takes his family for an annual small vacation
his son's school takes a break during April-May. It is for this very
reason Akshay was put in a
dilemma in regards to juggling dates for this long outdoor shoots and
his family. It was then when Aarav stepped in and cleverly solved the
problem by asking his father if he could accompany him to the shoots
in South Africa.
with the immense love, support and presence of his family, Akshay will start
shooting for KKK4 in South
Africa at the end of this month.
We wish the stunt-savvy Kumars a great time in South Africa. Meanwhile, be sure to catch the adventurous promo on Colors!
