Priyanka Chopra will make her debut on TV as the host of “Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi” and says she will be more than up to cracking what’s seen to be a male domain.
“Just because I’m a girl it shouldn’t be presumed that I can’t enter the boys’ territory. I’d do the stunts better than the boys,” Priyanka told IANS.
The special edition of the show will feature Indian as well as international cricketers competing with each other to vie for the ‘Fear Factor – Khaton Ka Khiladi’ title for 2010.
“And cricketers are people I’m very cool with. Not that I know the cricket world that well. It will be great getting to know them,” said the actress who has her own stunts planned for the show.
“All I can tell you is that the stunts this year are going to be bigger and scarier than they were on the show last year. Now we’ve male contestants instead of female and I’ve to match up to them,” she said.
“I was getting a lot of television offers for the last couple of years. But the amount of time that those shows required didn’t suit me. Besides nothing excited me. ‘Fear Factor’ is one of my favourite shows. And it goes with my personality. I’m sporty and spontaneous.
“The channel didn’t have to convince me much. The pay-cheque? Ah, let’s say it’s the cherry on the icing,” she added.
Priyanka is also excited about shooting for the adventure reality show in Brazil because she has never visited that part of the world.
“I’m looking forward to shooting the show there. I haven’t seen Brazil. So July onwards I’m going to be basking in Brazilian territory,” she said.
