Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is known for doing his stunts in his action-packed movies. But now it seems that the khiladi has turned into a rapper too, as he enlivened the launch event of the forthcoming reality show “Dare 2 Dance” by rapping the title song! What’s more, buzz is that the actor had penned the catchy rap on his own for the show. Talking about the rap, Akshay said that he felt himself to be a bad singer!”I consider myself a bad singer. These guys (the channel officials) wanted someone with a ‘besura awaaz’ (tuneless voice), so I had no choice but to do it,” he joked.
Akshay would be seen as the host and mentor on the show. In fact it was his idea to do it outdoors at unusual places– mid-air, underwater, in the midst of fire and on ice — so that the show has an edge over other reality shows. Talking about the show Akshay said that he felt a strong connect with “Dare 2 Dance” as it mixes the two worlds of dance and adventure well together. He even told the reporters that he’ll be glad if it is ever adapted internationally as well!
“I’ll be very proud if somebody from the international world calls up the channel’s team to say ‘We want to buy the rights of this show’. I’ll honestly be very proud,” Akshay said at the show’s launch event on Wednesday. The show which would be aired on Life OK starting Saturday is said to be spread across 16 episodes. Shot in the picturesque Cape Town in South Africa, the show has Indian as well as foreign contestants.
