When Priyanka Chopra was signed on as the host for the new season of ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’, there was a lot of excitement about who’d be on the show with her. Cricketers (both Indian and international) were going to be part of the new season, and names like Yuvraj Singh and Brett Lee were in the air. But now, post the IPL scandal and India’s performance in the T20 World Cup, there are problems for the show. Apparently, not one cricketer has been signed for the show yet.
The show is going to start shooting in Brazil in mid-July, but even though there have been discussions with many cricketers to appear on the show, it seems that nothing has been finalised yet.
Could it be that the cricketers have been affected by talk that they need to concentrate on cricket and not other activities? Indian cricket captain M S Dhoni had said recently that IPL parties had partly affected their performance in the T20 World Cup.
All this isn’t working out too well for PC, of course. Wonder which cricketers will finally sign up for the show with the new Khiladi!
