Akshay Kumar set to debut on TV with India’s fear factor
Thirteen good looking women are willing to confront their deepest fears, and playing host to this game show is Bollywood’s Khiladi, Akshay Kumar.
A reality-show, Khatron Ke Khiladi is all set to be launched in mid-July on Viacom18′s new Hindi general entertainment channel, Colors, and the action quotient here goes sky high.
The list of 13 beauties who will live on the edge under Akshay’s expert guidance include models Tupur and Tapur Chatterjee, Pooja Bedi and item girl Yana Gupta.
The new reality show is the desi version of the popular series Fear Factor and Akshay Kumar who’s known for his fondness for stunts, will not surprisingly, lead by example with his daredevil acts.
Leaving no stone unturned, the channel roped in music director duo Salim-Suleman for the promotional track of the show.
“The motto of the song is the way Kiran has written it is ‘jo daar jaya wo ghar gaya’ and that is what which keeps coming back to me,” says Salim.
While Sulieman pitches in saying, “When you have someone of Akshay’s stature doing the role, you know you have to do it with attitude.”
So while the musicians tried to pack a punch on the soundtrack with Neeraj Sridhar’s voice, the aim to convey the adrenalin-pumping action and urgency of the show was clear.
“Even in the track there is a lot of action. As the track progresses the basic idea of Khatrao Ke Khiladi comes across with an attitude,” says Sulieman.
