Akshay to Host Khatron Ke Khiladi 4

Akshay Kumar, who hosted the first two seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi, and in third season when Priyanka Chopra, entered into the show, but once again, Mr. Khiladi is back with his action modes in the fourth season of the show.

Finally, Sunil Manchanda’s MAD Production has created the first look of the Khatron Ke Khiladi 4 with actor, Akshay Kumar. The actor flexes his muscles and packs a punch in his first teaser that airs tonight at prime-time. Akshay returns to SA for the fourth outing of the drama. A source said,

“Akshay was paid Rs 1.5 crore per episode for the first season which was upped in the second round. For the fourth season, the price he quoted was too high and he refused to negotiate. Ajay Devgn was then seen as a possible replacement. Ajay was negotiating the price and terms of the contract, when the channel went and leaked it out to Akshay that they had approached Devgn. Akki immediately renegotiated his price and cut it down, so Devgn was left out while Akki came on board again.”

Although, initially, the channel was not happy with Akshay’s terms and approached Salman Khan. They wanted to shoot in Bangkok and Sallu was already shooting there at the time but when Akshay came to know that Salman is being considered for the show, the actor was upset and the channel again considered him.
