The show was was launched on the same day when Colors TV channel was launched and the show and the channel became an instant hit with Akshay Kumar making thirteen beauties to overcome their worst fears in every episode. After that the channel became even more popular with reality shows like Bigg Boss 2 and daily soaps like Balika Vadhu.
Now Colors TV and Endemol (producers of Khatron Ke Khiladi 1) have approached Akshay Kumar to host the second season of Khatron Ke Khiladi. If reports are to be believed, they have also agreed to Akshay Kumar's price which he quoted at 2.5 crore for each episode. The golden boy of Bollywood is going through a great phase in his career with a series of hits in the last two years and has got many big budget movies in the pipeline too. Akshay Kumar has once again proved that he is not only the highest paid actor in Bollywood right now but he is also "King" of the small screen in terms of money making.
