Exes Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty to clash on Television, here’s how! – Both the shows are launching on the same day and same slot —September 30 at 8 pm on different channels.
Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty Kundra will soon be seen on TV in two different shows. While Akshay is returning to TV after three years as the super judge of The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, that is making a comeback after seven years, Shilpa will continue to be on the panel of dance reality show Super Dancer 2. Both the shows are launching on the same day and same slot —September 30 at 8 pm on different channels. Besides, both will be weekend shows airing on Saturdays and Sundays. Says a source from Akshay’s show, “September 30 is an auspicious day as it is Dussehra. So we decided to launch on that day.”
Last year, Super Dancer started on September 10, but this year because Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 was launched, the dance show got pushed a little. “There is no particular reason for it to start on 30th, it is as per the schedule that was decided at the beginning of the year,” says a source from the show.
For the uninitiated, the Khiladi and Shilpa were dating each other in the ’90s before he got married to Twinkle Khanna, while Shilpa tied the knot with Raj Kundra. Now, Shilpa and Akshay are good friends and the two had even come together to launch a home shopping channel.
