Apparently, Akshay has signed up as the host for the desi version of 'Top Chef", an international show hosted by model Padma Lakshmi, which is currently in its 7th year in overseas. Akshay is not very happy with Colors and Endemol but is not exactly planning to hold a grudge. He believes in healthy competition and likes it that way. Going by the reports, Akki has asked Star Plus to put his show in the same time slot as Priyanka"s show.
Akki has decided that when he sits with the channel personnel, he would ask them to put his show in the same time slot as 'Khatron Ke Khiladi" and will also ask the channel to air his show somewhere between August to September, which is the same time as the Priyanka"s show goes on air. But it just seems that Kumar"s plan might go in vain, as Priyanka"s show is going off schedule due to the unavailability of required cricketers and might not go on air as per the schedule.
Going by the channel"s requirements, they want to put 'Top Chef" in the weekend slot making it stronger due to Kumar"s presence. The final verdict on this is yet to be out but one thing we must say…Akki sure knows how to compete!
We already know that our lovely Piggy Chops will be hosting the season 3 of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi", which is currently going off schedule because of the difficulty of roping in cricketers. Earlier, we had seen Akshay Kumar hosting the show with a lot of finesse suiting the 'khiladi" title in all regards. But, it seems that the news of Chopra hosting the new season of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi" has not gone down too well with Kumar.
