Actor Arjun Kapoor’s career as a small-screen host took off last year with the action reality showKhatron Ke Khiladi — Season 7. The channel’s programming head Manisha Sharma was quoted by a daily recently, praising the young actor and awarding him the title of a “superlative host”, despite being a “surprise package” in the show.The actor’s unique charm pulled in younger audiences to the show and that has reportedly propelled the makers to take this decision of roping him in for the eighth season too. Of course, most say that the actor could not measure up to the previous hosts who are action stars in their own right – Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty , but he managed to garner support of the audience in his own way. The channel has reportedly decided to go back to South Africa to host the show as they are considered to be the best when it came to safety measures. The shoot for Khatron Ke Khiladi — Season 8 is expected to begin by the end of this year.
