Khatron Ke Khiladi (KKK) is all set to bounce back on the Indian Television! Oh yes, after a gap of almost 3 years the show full of thrill, fear and excitement is all set to rock our small screen with shrieks of contestants, beauty of the picturesque locations and action-packed voice of the host. This time however there won’t be our favorite Khiladi bhaiyya, Akshay Kumar hosting the show as his wife is expecting their baby the same time. But we have a good replacement as the makers have roped in Rohit Shetty to host Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 5.
For a change we will see him in front of the cameras, courtesy KKK. Will he add a comic angle to this adventurous reality show like his movies? Well, I hope he does unlike the Big Boss 7 which had more of serious violence than entertainment.
The Flash Back…
Based on America’s Fear Factor, Khatron Ke Khiladi started in the year 2008 where Nethra Raghuraman went on to become the winner. The show was anchored by Akshay Kumar. In the year 2009 too we saw Akshay anchoring and Anushka Manchanda sweeping the contest. Season 3 came with a twist where we saw male contestants participating and Piggy Chops hosting the show. Here, Shabbir Ahluwalia became the winner.

The Masala News before Season 5
While, the earlier seasons might have run smoothly, this year we expect some controversies. The reason – Well, the Big Boss 7 nautanki participants will be seen contesting each other. Oh yes, we are talking about Kushal Tandon and Gauhar Khan sans Tanisha-Armaan. Earlier there was news that Kushal and Gauhar both are participating in the show but now there are last minute changes. The sad news is that Kushal will be making an early exit due to his injury. Call it a TRP thing but the makers now seem to be keen in bringing Ek Number Manus Ajaz Khan in the show. Gauhar Khan however has threatened the producers that, if Ajaz comes, I will quit the show.
