Shortage of hunks for her show
Priyanka Chopra has been sweating out on treadmills, dumbbells and lat pulleys to prepare for the upcoming season of Khatron Ke Khiladi - Fear Factor which she’s set to host. But there’s a hitch. Of the 13 contestants who will take part in the show, only two have been finalized so far, even though the show’s shooting is set to start in August in Brazil.
Earlier, the show’s makers planned to rope in only cricketers. But the IPL controversy coupled with the disastrous performance of Indian team in T20 world cup had the cricketers opting out of show for fear of inviting more criticism.
Since then the channel has been trying to rope in celebrities from the entertainment industry, but not many have been forthcoming yet.
Reports say only Rahul Bose and Milind Soman have been roped in so far. A lot of other hunks have been approached, but none has committed yet. Apparently, they seem to be asking a higher fee for taking part in the show.
However, the channel’s CEO says the contestants will be finalized within a week.
