After Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra’s stints as presenters of Colors’ ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, it looks like Salman Khan is the latest name being touted to host the reality TV show.

Reports today suggest that Salman Khan may present the popular daredevil show after his previous success as host on ‘Bigg Boss’. Akshay was in a state of shock when his friends broke this news to him, reportedly.

“Salman shot a promo for KKK4 in Bangkok while shooting for Bhushan Kumar’s Ready. He would never shoot a promo unless he had signed a contract. The channel is debating on how to break the news to Akshay who was kicked about hosting the show’s fourth season,” a source told Mid Day.

“He has hinted on giving them a bargain, a double deal for Big Boss 5 and KKK 4. The clincher could be BB4’s higher TRPs than Akshay has ever had on his show for the same channel,” added the source.

Akshay refuses to believe these reports. “He has heard the rumours of Salman replacing him but is choosing not to believe them till the channel tells him so. He refuses to believe that Salman would do something so underhand,” a source close to Akshay told the tabloid.
