Akshay Kumar : The Stunt King

In his first appearance on the small screen, Akshay Kumar seems to have pretty much grabbed the attention of the TV audience across the country. And this time, he’s not even doing all the action himself. Most of the time, Khiladi Kumar is teaching the 13 girls the stunts they have to perform. And it’s not only TV audiences, but even celebrities, including Akki’s co-stars, who have given thumbs up for his charming hosting skills. This, for instance, is what Raveena Tandon had to say, “Akshay is doing a superb job as the host of the show. And he’s doing what he enjoys the most. The format goes very well with his personality.”

It’s a new, fresh, nail-biting TV show, with a format people can connect and relate to,” exults Akshay, adding, “I have enjoyed every minute of doing the show from the word go. It was a proud moment for me as an Indian when some of these girls went on to break world records in a foreign land in front of a foreign crew.”

Shilpa Shetty, another actress who has worked in many hit films with Akshay, is all praise for the show. “ Khatron Ke Khiladi is so very interesting and engaging that I’m hooked to it. Akshay is a great host and I must say the girls are very daring. I would have never been able to do these stunts.”
