Akshay Kumar’s fear factor with Bollywood Bombshells!
Bollywood, we would like to believe, is full of fearless femme fatales! For in a manner that would give Charlie and his Angels an inferiority complex, action king Akshay Kumar is hosting the second season of the popular reality show Fear Factor with nine of the film industry’s hot actresses participating in it. Akki, who is reportedly being paid Rs 1.5 crore per episode, has for company in his daredevilry the likes of Celina Jaitley, Aarti Chabbria, Sonali Kulkarni, Ayesha Takia and Anjana Sukhani among others.
They will have to match the Bollywood Khiladi who is known for his martial arts prowess and death-defying stunts. At present, putting everything aside, the actresses are undergoing rigorous training for the show that will be shot in South Africa for over 15 days in May. “They will have to perform different stunts like jumping from helicopters and high-rise buildings to eating scorpions live,” said a source. The actresses, who like Akshay, are being paid handsomely, are bound by contract and forbidden to discuss the show or reveal their preparations.
