No one can match Akshay Kumar:Priyanka Chopra

23 03 2010

Priyanka Chopra last paired with Akshay Kumar in 2005 with their last movie being Waqt. Reports had then said that their relationship had allegedly gone sour.

However, that isn’t stopping Priyanka from showering praises on Akshay whom she replaces as the host of the Indian version of Fear Factor on Colors. Priyanka says she can never match the standards set by Akshay for the show who, with his daredevil stunts and panache, grabbed eyeballs.

“I am not getting into Akshay’s shoes. I am carrying forward his legacy. He has already established the show and set a standard. But I am looking at setting my own standards and the bar will be really high. Akshay is the original khiladi and he loves stunts and doing action sequences. No one can emulate him. He does all the strenuous stunts with such ease that they look perfect. It will be a tough challenge for me to follow up his act but I am ready for it,” says Priyanka, who was reported to be very close to Akshay a few years ago. The actors had vehemently denied those rumours then but did not team up with each other post the gossip.

The news of Priyanka hosting the show also means that she is now fully fit. A few months ago she had fallen ill post which doctors advised her to take rest and not push her body for a few months.

She says, “I am fine. In the next few months I’ll get to do a lot of action stunts. Later this year I start shooting for Don 2 where I have some heavy-duty action sequences. Even in this show I will do all the action routines myself and there is nothing that I have been advised not to do. I love the adrenaline rush I get from doing action sequences and I am looking at pushing my body. It will be great fun.”
