Following Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan’s television shows, the most recent addition in this list is that of actor Akshay Kumar who is all set to take the world of entertainment by storm. He features in this show called ‘Khatron ke Khiladi‘ which has 13 beauties including Aditi Govitrikar, Yaana Gupta, Sonali Kulkrani, Pooja Bedi, Anita Hassannandani, Tapur Chatterjee, Meghna Naidu, Anjana Sukhani, Diptannita Sharma, Nethra Raghuraman, Vidaya Malvade and Urvashi Sharma along with the actor.
The actor who is known for his stunts which he does by himself looks to extend this image through this show and bring in the differentiation factor among the bollywood actors who have featured in television. Whereas Shahrukh Khan impressed the multitude with his wit in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati‘ and Salman Khan with his rather down to earth approach has won the hearts of many through his show ‘Das Ka Dum‘ one would have to wait and watch whether Akshay is able to impress his ‘dare devil’ image on the minds of the television viewers.
The show is on the lines of fear factor which is popular across 72 countries in the world. Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi’ takes the game to high levels of physical and mental challenge thereby making it appear more gritty, edgy and thrilling. Interesting to see is the fact that the show highlights a trend which has become a watermark to all reality shows.
Most of the individuals participating in this show are actors or models whose cine career has not got the trajectory as desired by them. Hence, they take this show as a launchpad which could propel them into fame and fetch them roles from big production houses which till now had eluded them.
