According to the latest reports the fifth season of the television reality show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' will not be hosted by Mr. Khiladi Akshay Kumar.
The show will be hosted by another action hero Ajay Devgn. It is said that actor Akshay Kumar turned down the show and has cited both professional and personal reasons for opting out. One reason being that his wife Twinkle is expecting their second child around the same time of the show. However Akshay won't be seen in Season 5.
A source said that, "Akshay informed the channel and the producers of the show that he would be unable to play the host of the show which deals with stunts. Akshay who has been the anchor for the first and the third season was sure to be retained. However, since he is expecting his second baby in September, he wants to be close to his wife Twinkle."
There were buzz of John Abraham or Ajay Devgn to take over the show and replace Akshay Kumar but the channel has finalized in on Ajay Devgn. Actor John Abraham is busy shooting back to back for Shootout At Wadala, Race 2, Shoojit Sircar's next and Farah Khan's Happy New Year.
So Ajay Devgn will be the next bollywood star seen on Color's channel as it already has Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Madhuri Dixit Nene as a part of Colors. And Ajay’s entry.
Finally the makers of Khatron Ke Khiladi signed Ajay who is known for his action image.
