About comparisons with Akshay, who hosted the previous two seasons, she says, “There is not a possibility of a comparison between us. Akshay is the original Khiladi. He has just made my job easier by setting the bar so high. I just have to take it forward from there.”
As for why she came on board for this show, Chopra says, “There were offers, but there was nothing that I felt I wanted to take out time for. Although I am busy with many movies this year, this show suits my personality — I’m adventurous and sporty.”
The actress says that films will not take a backseat. “I am working on Saat Khoon Maaf, and I will start working on Don 2 as soon as I am done with the show.” Priyanka, who recently won her first National Award for Best Actress for Fashion, says, “When I first said no to Fashion, Madhur (Bhandarkar) said he would rather not make the film. He’d always say, ‘Dekh lena’... and here it is,” she says.
