SRK to host desi version of Wipe Out?

December 09, 2010 09:56 IST

Endemol India is set to launch the desi version of internationally popular show Wipe out on Imagine.

And the buzz is that Shah Rukh Khan has been approached to host the show along with an Argentinean model. If it is true, it will mark his comeback after Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain on small screen.

The show will have contestants competing a series of challenges in what is billed as the largest obstacle course in an attempt to win the title.

The first round features 24 contestants, while after the fourth and final round; the fastest of the remaining three competitors around the course wins the game and cash prize.

The contestants will have to go through a series of bizarre challenges like sliding down a water ramp, slippery stairs, somersault off a balance beam into an impossibly shallow puddle of mud underneath or rope swing etc.

Some of the television stars tipped to take part in this reality shows include Vindoo Dara Singh, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Dimpy Mahajan, Priyadarshani Singh (from Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega), Raja Chaudhary, Akashdeep Saigal, Payal Rohatgi, Kushal Punjabi, Natasha Suri, Debina Bonnerjee, choreographer Hanif Hilal, Sandeep Sachdev (winner of Biggest Loser Jeetega), model Carol Gracias, Rajev Paul, Karishma Tanna, designer Rohit Varma and Gaurav Chopra.

The contestants are being tested on their physical grit, will power, and many other qualities before they are sent into the race. Shooting is expected to start very soon in Argentina.
