Mumbai: With Priyanka Chopra struggling to get high TRP’s for the current season of ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, buzz has it that Akshay Kumar has been approached by the channel to return as the host for the next season of KKK.

News has it that the channel is sending feelers to Akshay due to Priyanka’s poor show in the reality series. Talking to a news daily on the newfound development, a source said, "Kumar is definitely being considered as the next host for ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 4’. His first two seasons with the show were successful and based on the feedback received from viewers, the word on the street is that Priyanka didn`t do too well as a host. The channel and production house felt they should stick to a guy hosting the show rather than a girl. Even though it was PC`s first attempt at hosting, the ratings didn`t` sustain till the end of the show."

However, its still not confirmed whether Akshay will agree to be the part of the show or not. "He`s going to take his time and then decide. There will be several factors to be considered, right from his signing amount to dates and the place of the shoot. Akshay won`t comment on KKK until the channel puts their cards on the table," the source added.

Well, it is believed that Akshay wasn’t too happy with Priyanka taking over the show as the source said, "She never replaced him. His contract ended and that`s when PC showed interest in doing the reality show. Now that the channel wants him back, he has decided to play the waiting game and take a decision, taking everything into consideration."

Meanwhile, an official spokesperson of the channel said, "We are focusing on ‘Bigg Boss.’ It`s too early to comment on next season of KKK, and talk about who we have roped in."
