The ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her debut on the small screen. Priyanka Chopra has been signed by Colors TV to host Fear Factor 3 -Khatron Ke Khiladi, which is a special IPL edition.
The earlier format had 13 models and one Khiladi, but the third season will see 13 cricketers both national and international battling it out to win the title.
Ashvini Yardi, Programming Head-Colors, confirmed the news,” Akshay took the Khatron Ke Khiladi series to greater heights. We wanted a change in the concept of the show and so earlier, we had 13 ‘haseenayein’ and one ‘khiladi’, but now, we have one haseena and 13 cricketing khiladis from IPL in the upcoming season. We have a tie up with the IPL edition to enhance the branding between IPL and Colors and we will have year-long activities to demonstrate the merger.”
Priyanka spoke about her new role, “I am honored to be associated with one of the biggest shows on Indian television today as it fits aptly with my personality. I have been an avid watcher of the Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi series till now. I look forward to my innings in the TV industry with this show that gives an adrenaline rush to the viewers. The concept of the show, which will see some of the biggest names of cricket vying for the title, attracted me.”
Hope this haseena manages to charm the TRPs as well as the Khiladi did
