Arjun Kapoor set in for 'Khatron Ke Khiladi'

Actor Arjun Kapoor, who is making his small screen debut as a host of the seventh season of Khatron Ke Khiladi is not bothered by possible comparisons with the show’s former hosts, actor Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Rohit Shetty. He says he’s just continuing their ‘legacy’ and will make his own mark.

“I’m taking forward the legacy that Akshay and Rohit started. We all have our unique skills and personalities. Hopefully, mine will come to the forefront this time,” the Gunday actor added. “Akshay is somebody who has achieved a lot in his life. Rohit is another fantastic personality, and I have my unique personality.”

Asked if he was nervous about stepping into their shoes, Arjun shared, “I think the audience won’t tend to compare. With Akshay and me, the age group is different so I don’t think there will be a major comparison that way.”

Khatron Ke Khiladi is an adaptation of the American television show Fear Factor, which features celebrity contestants facing their fears. Arjun is thrilled that this year the shooting for the show will be in Argentina and this will be his first time in the South American country.

“This is my first time in Argentina and, of course, I am looking forward to going there. Normally, you don’t get to go to South America very often. Even our films are rarely shot in these areas in particular. So, of course it’s exciting,” he said.

Arjun, who has made his mark in Bollywood, had been on the lookout for a good opportunity to register his presence on the small screen. What made him choose this show? He stated “It’s a show where I get to be involved in everything — whether it’s the stunts, contestants or the taskmasters, you get to do everything on the show. It’s not just about hosting,” he said.

On the silver screen, Arjun will be seen playing a house husband in R Balki’s upcoming film Ki and Ka. The film also features actor Kareena Kapoor Khan in a lead role.
