Akshay Kumar, who has been hosting the reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, will not be returning to host the fifth season of the show.
Akshay Kumar had earlier agreed to host the fifth season but as his wife Twinkle Khanna is pregnant with their second child, Khiladi Kumar has decided to walk out of the show to spend time with his wife and his baby, who is due around the same time.
So the makers of the show have decided to rope in Ajay Devgn to host fifth season of the show.
“Ajay is known for doing his own stunts ever since his ‘Phool Aur Kaante’ days. It’ll be the perfect way for the Bollywood actor to enter the world of television. Though Ajay has appeared in a few TV shows, and even been a mentor for a couple of episodes of Emotional Atyachaar, this will be his first full length stint on television,” said a source to a daily.
The makers have no doubts that Ajay Devgn is the right replacement to host the celebrity stunt show.
