Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn battle it out on the small screen
Mumbai: Bollywood archrivals Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn are once again pitted against each other, this time on the small screen. Buzz has it that both actors are top contenders to host the fourth season of ‘Fear Factor’.
Apparently, Akshay Kumar has no inkling that the broadcasters of ‘Fear Factor’ are in constant talks with Ajay Devgn for the show.
Talking to a daily, a source from the TV industry said, “Ajay has sent feelers to the broadcasters of ‘Fear Factor’ that he wants to do that show. The channel that airs ‘Fear Factor’ has approached him. Ajay would love to do a show like ‘Fear Factor’. He loves action-oriented stuff.”
Well, it is not the first time and Akshay and Ajay are at loggerheads with each other. Akshay and Ajay’s professional relationship soured during the making of ‘Khakee’ (2004), where Ajay felt that Akshay had altered the length of his role. As a result, post ‘Khakee’, Ajay and Akshay never worked together again.
In 2010, Akshay convinced Vipul Shah to release ‘Action Replayy’ on the same day as ‘Golmaal 3’, though it is a different story that the former sank without a trace at the Box Office.
It is believed when Ajay Devgn heard that Emraan Hashmi would be chasing girls in Bhandarkar’s ‘Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji’, he made an allusion to ‘Akshay Kumar pre marriage’. Ajay also suggested that Emraan’s pet should be named Abbi to rhyme with Akki.
Interestingly, even Priyanka is trying her best to beat both the action heroes to host fourth season of ‘Fear Factor’. Speaking on this development, the source added, “But that is unlikely to happen. It’s just a two-horse race now.”
No doubt small screen is getting hotter day by day. What say people?
