Reality TV stars Sanam Johar, Kunwar Amar and Ritwik Dhanjani are all set to participate with international dancers in new show Dare 2 Dance. Hosted by Bollywood celebrity Akshay Kumar, the reality show will see 10 contestants showing up their skills in extreme conditions of Capetown, South Africa.
"We didn't restrict it to Indian dancers. We have given chance to international dancers as well to present their skills. It will be a learning experience for contestants both domestic and international as they will be dancing under the water, mid air, ice skate and fire. It's a challenge for them," Akshay told reporters here during the launch of the show.
Two contestants -- Emille Callion and Scarlett Wilson -- have been roped in for the Life Ok! show, which will go on air from September 6. The other Indian participants include 'Mahabharat' actress Sayantani Ghosh, 'Dil Dosti Dance' contestant Alisha Singh, 'ABCD' actor Mayuresh Wadekar, Kathak dancer Karan Pangali and Prince. Akshay would be seen donning various hats on the show from a friendly host, mentor, singer to a camera man.
The channel said it is in talks to sell the right of its eight-episode show to an Europen company after the series gets over. "In India, the reality shows which we see on TV are all adaptations of international shows. This is the first time that we have conceptualised a show and western countries are interested in it. Few days ago, I got a query from an European company to get its right as they are quite impressed with the promos. We are yet to decide anything on it," Ajit Thakur, general manager of the channel, said.
