Fear Factor in Telugu, Tamil & Malayalam

23 Jun 2014

Acrophobia. Claustrophobia. Ophidiophobia. Nyctophobia. Astraphobia. The list never ends. You can do just two things. Face or flee. It’s about pushing your boundaries, about proving to oneself or just accepting defeat and walking away. The choice is ours. We all have that moment where we have to make this decision that will change our lives. Making that decision or even watching others take that decision is a moment of sheer thrill in itself. Sun TV Network brings to South India, the spine-chilling action blockbuster in reality shows, Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi in Telugu, Tamil & Malayalam. A reality show in this format will be the most expensive show with all the grandeur and drama that South Indian television has ever witnessed.

The adventure reality show canned at exotic and exhilarating locales in South Africa for the first few seasons, caters to the young and adventurous audience that take life head-on. Bollywood action star Akshay Kumar plays the audacious host, taking the contestants through the perils and possibilities of each gut-wrenching act. Each season will have 13 celebrities along with their warrior partners, each one battling out for their own social cause of women empowerment or education or for reasons of pushing themselves to extreme limits, letting go of their fears and the ultimate pride of winning. Every episode will have the contestants performing heroic daredevil stunts with gritty women equally battling it out to face the fear with all the courage that they never knew it existed. Some of the dauntless contestants of the show’s first installment include popular actresses Anitha, Meghna Naidu, Yana Gupta, ‘Chak De India’ fame Vidya Malvade and the famous relationship columnist Pooja Bedi. 

As the contestants attempt to defeat their darkest fears in a quest to be the ultimate winner, the means to reach it gets only tougher. Elimination strikes those who can’t be the first or the best, thus mounting the pressure for the contestants and the thrill of anticipation for the audience. With Akshay Kumar as an intrepid anchor with ample star pull in the South as well and relentless contestants who will be vying for their top spot with face-off acts, the show will be a testimony to what Eleanor Roosevelt said: “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…you must do the thing which you think you cannot do”.

Sun TV Network presents this very distinct show to the viewers who can satiate their hanker for pure adrenaline rush with this high-octane adventure in a language of their preference.
