Hang on this is not one of Akshay's latest movie stunt but a promotional film for India's biggest action packed reality drama 'Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi'. The film was shot in the colorful city of Bangkok which marks the beginning of a never-seen-before multimedia campaign for Entertainment channel COLORS driver property.
The film, literally shot like a Bollywood movie trailer, is a foretaste of what is to hit the small screen with Bollywood's ultimate extension on Television - 'Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi'. The promo film commences with Akshay Kumar, host of the show performing death-defying stunts, thus living up to his reputation of being India's first 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'.

Setting the tone for a 'never seen before' campaign, you can look forward to a unique synergy between Bollywood and television. And that too, with India's favorite action hero&television entertainment. It's an un-missable start."
Sharing his experience in shooting the film Akshay Kumar, host of 'Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi' said "With something as crazy and exciting like 'Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi' you have got to start at Bangkok. I truly enjoyed being on skate board, straddled between two of the tallest buildings in Thailand - just to give a preview of the show to my viewers. It sounds easy on paper, just take a look for yourself and enjoy the ride with me. You don't have to be a daredevil lover to enjoy this show - it's packed with me of course, but also with love, friendships, deadly stunts and a lot of fun."
Kunal Kapoor, Film Director says "The brief was to shoot an exciting action sequence to epitomize the spirit of the show and give viewers a taste of what is yet to come. Hence we thought it would be fitting to have Akshay skate on a cable wire from the rooftop of the tallest building of Thailand. The treatment is topped off with sleek production values"
