At the press conference to announce Arjun Kapoor as the host of "Khatron Ke Khiladi" season 7, the actor was asked why he was inspired to do television at this point in his career.
"TV is a fantastic medium. It allows me as a young actor to connect with the audience that I believe has not seen all my movies as of now. Through television I can reach out to them and show aspects of my personality, which they haven't seen - the funny and quirky side of me - as I have done some intense films. At the end of the day I want to entertain people," said Arjun.
Arjun takes over from the likes of Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Rohit Shetty, who have previously hosted this Indian version of the "Fear Factor." "Its fantastic to carry forward the legacy of Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Rohit Shetty. I hate the word replaced. I feel it is a continuation. Every show and host has a journey," said Arjun.
