Word has it that Vidyut Jammwal is all set to become the new face of Fear Factor in India, which means he’d have big shoes to fill: that of Akshay Kumar‘s! Here’s what an insider source reveals about Vidyut’s inclusion in the show.

“The production house and the team have been toying with the idea of a new face for this branded TV reality show. They’d been tracking Vidyut since his debut film Force last year and had researched his background to find his strong martial art roots. Vidyut had performed all his stunts himself in Force that earned him the daredevil tag. They had followed his journey and with his latest Bollywood action film Commando (releasing. Early 2013) where he plays the lead, they knew that had great relevance. The stunts in the film have all been performed and co designed by Vidyut which are minus cables and stunt doubles and thus promises some never seen before action sequences.”

However, it seems that the channel is delaying their plans for a bit, and instead of having a new season in 2013, they’re considering a 2014 roll-out of the show. Vidyut’s spokesperson claims that the production house was speaking with his manager, but the conversation is still in the early stages and there are several details yet to be discussed. So I guess all we can do is wait and see – but meanwhile, tell us what you think. Is Vidyut a good choice for the host of this show?

Psst! Remember we caught up with him at the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour in Delhi? Girl look at that body, he works out!
