Akshay opts out of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ for pregnant Twinkle

Akshay Kumar opted out of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ for Twinkle Khanna who is expecting their second child this September. As Twinkle is on the seven months of pregnancy, Akki wants to be around her during pre and post pregnancy period. Akki and Twinkle has a 10 year old son Aarav. Akshay Kumar who is busy with films and ads wanted to take time off for family. He has hosted the first and third season of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and wants to keep himself free in September as Twinkle's delivery is due around the period when KKK's fifth season will be shot. Hence, the fifth season will be hosted by Ajay Devgn.

It is said that Ajay is keen to host the reality show but his prior commitments are creating a big hassle for him. He has back-to-back film commitments. It is not yet confirm whether he will give his nod or not. 

The channel has zeroed on two names, Ajay Devgn and John Abraham but action star Ajay is their first choice. Moreover, John is busy with his film commitments. He is filming, ‘Shootout At Wadala’, ‘Race 2’ Shoojit Sarkar’s next and Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’.

After Akshay, Ajay is the next action hero of Bollywood. His latest action film, ‘Singham’ has redefined his image of an action hero.

Well, the channels decision to replace Akshay with Ajay is very correct as Ajay perfectly fits the bill.
