Most A-list actors are balancing a TV career alongside films. Akshay Kumar is one of them. His stint on television started in 2008 when he hosted an adventure sport-based show for three seasons, and the last time we saw him on television was in 2011, hosting a cooking-based reality show.

Now, it seems the actor might be returning to the tube again, this time with a dance-and-stunt-based reality show.

If sources are to be believed,

Akshay Kumar

has given his go-ahead to a serial that will feature names from show business itself and will test their dancing and stunt-performing capabilities.

"This is the first time the channel is attempting a reality show since its re-launch three years back," says the source, adding, "Akshay seemed like the right choice as he is the right mix of someone who’s a daredevil and dancer; something that the channel was looking for. It will be shot in Cape Town, South Africa, later this year."

While the channel remained unavailable for comment, a friend of the actor says, "Yes, he has been approached, but is yet to take up the offer."
