Fear Factor — Khatron Ke Khiladi

Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi is an Indian stunt/dare reality game show, based on the American Fear Factor.[citation needed] The series was first launched as Fear Factor India on Sony TV in 2006 by the Programming team of Tarun Katial and Anupama Mandloi where it received a great response from the viewers; however, the channel discontinued the series after one season. The channel gave up its rights to Colors TV and the series was relaunched as Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi on 21 July 2008.[1]

Host[edit]

The first two seasons were hosted by Akshay Kumar.[2] He was replaced by Priyanka Chopra in the third season due to scheduling conflicts. However, Akshay Kumar was roped in again for the fourth season.[3] For season 5, Rohit Shetty replaced Akshay Kumar as he had family problems. Arjun Kapoor was decided to be the host for Season 7[4]
