After setting the big screens on fire, Akshay Kumar is returning to the small screen for the second season of his hit action reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi. The announcement was made just yesterday that the network will keep Akshay as the host for this time also.
Khatron Ke Khiladi Level 2 will also feature common people struggling to get the stunts right, apart from the celebrities.
“Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi Level 2 is going to be a notch higher in terms of bigger celebrity participants than the last season, the difficulty level of challenges and even Akshay Kumar! The inclusion of the common man as a co-contender will definitely create a lot of excitement.”
The channel also hints at a surprise, saying that Akshay will be playing ‘a much bigger role than just a mentor and the host’. Also, the bar has been raised for the stunts this time. We will definitely keep an eye on the premiere episode. If you want to participate in the show, the last day to submit your entries is 15th February.
Meanwhile, Akshay’s so-called ‘comic run’ is said to have ended after the bitter flop of Chandni Chowk To China. There are many people with an opinion that with the end of the success streak, Akshay will not be able to create the same magic the next time he shows up in the theaters.
Frankly speaking, I disagree with the statement since Akshay has been very successful in whatever he’s done in the past two years. You can not erase his image from the minds of the audience. Just one flop isn’t going to do much harm and he will certainly bounce back with the release of ‘Kambakht Ishq‘.
