Apart from Khatron Ke Khiladi, Akshay hosted the first season of Master Chef and Dare to Dance. With The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, he is making a comeback on television after a gap of nine years. "Television is not easy as you work continuously. There are several cameras monitoring you. I have learnt to admire people who work on television shows, be it the artiste or other team members. We film actors don't value things," Akshay told PTI.
Akshay also revealed that his mother loves watching television shows. "My mother watches lot of television shows. She is glued to television, she doesn't watch films with so much interest as she sees television shows," he said.
Akshay Kumar's The Great Indian Laughter Challenge goes on air from September 30. His Main Khiladi Tu Anari co-star Saif Ali Khan will reportedly be the first celebrity guest on the show.
Akshay Kumar was last seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and is now awaiting the release of Rajinikanth's 2.0, in which he plays the prime antagonist. He also has Padman, Gold and Mogul - The Gulshan Kumar Story in the pipeline.
