Arjun Kapoor has taken over the mantle as the host from Rohit Shetty for the upcoming season of Khatron Ke Khiladi. Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra too have previously hosted the show.
The actor says Akshay Kumar is his inspiration. He says, “I have heard so much about how Akshay performs his stunts. I would love to learn from him. I won’t say that I’m replacing them; it’s more taking the show forward.” Speaking about his role on the show, Arjun says, “Hosting appeals to me. I think I’m too young to be judging people; I will be there for contestants when they need me. I’m not just going to sit back and watch; I am also looking to perform some action stunts. It’s exciting since you don’t always get to do that in films. I also hope to reach out to a wider audience through this show as a lot of people must have watched just two-three films of mine but now I’m entering people’s homes.” Ask him about his fears, and Arjun says, “I think I would be in a better position to answer this question after the shoot, after I face various fears.”
