Raghu Mukherjee, who debuted in Kannada with the movie Savaari, is now turning TV show host. The model-turned-actor will soon appear as an anchor on the upcoming Kannada reality TV show 'D for Danger'. He says that he was inspired by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar to sign the project.
According to Raghu, Akshay Kumar has been his source of inspiration. The show will feature a lot of stunts, but it will not be very similar to 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'. Raghu says that he has watched quite a few reality shows on TV. But as a kid, he was fond of the outdoors and had participated in several wildlife camps. Now he is very confident that he is ready for the challenge.
The reality TV show 'D for Danger' will either be based on the lines of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' or the Tamil show 'Anu Alavum Bayamillai', which is again based on the show 'Fear Factor'. The show will have 32 episodes and will be shot over three months. Raghu has already fixed dates. He will be on the sets whenever he is required to be there, says Raghu.
The show is directed by Zahir Hussain. It has 12 participants (six guys and six girls) and upcoming Kannada actor like Arjun, Tarun Sudhir, Akshay, Suraj, Tejaswini, Ashwini and Sushma Veer have already been selected for the same after a thorough medical check-up. The contestants will be cut off from the rest of the world from December and their elimination of will start only after 10 episodes based on their points.
