Apparently, Akshay Kumar has bowed out of his action-based reality show to be close to wife Twinkle who will give birth in September.
After months of speculation, we can finally confirm that Akshay Kumar will no longer play host on an action-based TV reality show. The actor has cited both professional and personal reasons for opting out. And now word is that Ajay Devgn might step into Akki’s shoes for the show’s upcoming season.
A source informs, “Akshay informed the channel and the producers of the show that he would be unable to play the host of the show which deals with stunts. Akshay who has been the anchor for the first and the third season was sure to be retained. However, since he is expecting his second baby in September, he wants to be close to his wife Twinkle.”
Our source also informs that Akki is quite busy in the process of completing his home production with Himesh Reshammiya and will be starting another home production. Regarding the channel approaching Devgn to take up Akki’s role, our source states, “Since Akshay is unavailable for this year, the channel thought of another actor who would fit in and they have approached Ajay for the show.
The talks between them are currently on and if all goes well, he will be doing the show.” The source adds, “However, Ajay has his date diary blocked with multiple films and that’s why the channel has decided to postpone the show till next year.”
