Bollywood Stars hit the small screen in October

The festive season in October is usually a time when Bollywood bigwigs fight it out at the box office. But this year will be different, as no less than Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan will have television as their battleground.

The three actors will try to drive up TRPs as hosts for three big shows that are expected to hit the small screen in October.

While Amitabh and Salman will be seen in Colors and Sony respectively, Akshay has shifted base to STAR Plus after being replaced by actress Priyanka Chopra for the third season of Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi 3 on Colors.

Amitabh, who hosted Bigg Boss 3 for Colors, is all set to host the fourth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, expected to go on air on Sony TV Oct 11, which also marks the megastar’s birthday.

Kaun Banega Crorepati is an Indian version of British show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The first season in India, hosted by Amitabh, went on air in 2000 and proved to be an epochal show in the history ofn Indian television. He hosted the second season as well, but was replaced by superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the third season.

Meanwhile, Salman, who used to add spark to Sony’s Dus Ka Dum, has replaced Big B as the host of the reality show Bigg Boss 4.

Akshay, who used to work as a chef in Bangkok before getting a break in Bollywood, will go back to his culinary instincts for Master Chef India, a competitive cookery show.

Incidentally, all shows will hit the small screen in October. But on the face of it competition is not bothering any of them.
