As you said, it was so irritating to watch Ajay and Kunal act like Akshay's minions last year...I hope Akshay doesn't come back as host next year or this show will surely tank...</font>
<font face="Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif" size="3">Sorry, but I don't want Akshay or any other actor as a judge of the next season. Why are actors always roped in for everything? As soon as Bollywood enters a show, it is 'dumbed down' The channel heads have themselves noted that the current season has had better TRPs compared with the last season. If not Vikas Khanna then get some other top chef, but definitely not an actor. It was extremely distasteful last year to see 2 judges who are at the top in their chosen profession as chefs playing 2nd fiddle to Akshay. Most of the time, the show revolved around Akshay the actor pandering to his vanity. The show is about food, not movies. How would it look if in MasterChef USA, they had either Tom Cruise orBrad Pittas the judge? Or even MasterChef Australia had Hugh Jackman instead of either George, Gary or Matt?
Anyway, it's just my humbleopinion.
me to yaar. I don't want akshay for the cost of vikas. I love akshay as actor . Not as chef. Vikas when can have back again. Going to miss him
