TellyBuzz had already reported that the dashing model cum actor cum commentator, Angad Bedi
has been roped in as the surprise element of this season's Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi * 3. However, there seems to be a last minute change to this, as we hear that Angad has been replaced by his co-host from this year's IPL, Sameer Kochhar.
A little birdie tells us that, "The unit is to leave to Brazil on the 15th of August. However, there seems to be a slight change in the line-up as Sameer Kochhar will now be replacing Angad. The Junior Bedi could not make it as his dates were clashing with the shoot of his debut film".
When contacted, Angad confirmed the news to TellyBuzz and said, "I would have loved to be part of Fear Factor. Actually, my dates clashed with the shoot dates for my debut film with Mr. Vashu Bhagnani. We had to start shoot from the 14th. However, I could not approach Mr. Bhagnani for a change in date as he was out of the country. As soon as he came back, I approached him and got my film dates changed to 27th August. But the sad part is that Endemol could not wait and by the time I could clear my dates, they had brought in another guy into the show".
Ask him whether he is aware that close buddy Sameer Kochhar might apparently replace him, and Angad acknowledged this piece of news.
Angad further said, "Everything depends on destiny and I accept the decision. I wish to host the show like Priyanka Chopra one day (smiles)".
When contacted, Sameer Kochhar told us, "I do not know anything at this moment. You will have to call me back later in the evening to know what the update is".
We tried contacting Deepak Dhar, Country Head, Endemol India, but he was not available.As we wish Sameer all the very best, we can only hope that Angad gets yet another opportunity to get adventurous!!
