After the not-so-great debut coming from Priyanka Chopra last year, the channel we hear was eyeing on getting back the original Khiladi, Akshay Kumar on board.. However, Akshay Kumar's commitments to hosting the next season of Star Plus' popular show Master Chef India has prompted COLORS to look for a brand new host..
Apparently the news making rounds is that Ajay Devgn has been offered to host the next season of Fear Factor, and talks are presently on with him.
Our source states, "Fear Factor did not rake in great TRPs last year for two reasons. Firstly, Priyanka did not come across as a great host, and the fact that the show did not have the glamour and thrill quotient of girls as contestants did not apparently go well with the audience".
We hear that Ajay Devgn is the hot favorite to host the new season of Fear Factor. The popular show is expected to launch in September. And if all goes well, this season's Fear Factor might yet again see the adventurous ladies coming into the limelight.
When contacted, Deepak Dhar, Country Head, Endemol told us, "You have to wait for the announcement of next season's Fear Factor".
Let's see whether Ajay Devgn will be the next big Bollywood celebrity to make it big on television..
