Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is not directly related with IPL. However, she was supposed to make her debut in television as the hostess of the TV show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’. Because of the on going IPL fiasco, it was not possible to get any major cricketer and the future of this show has become doubtful.
In March 2010, it was announced that this actress will take on 13 IPL players on the show and it would be a special edition of the reality show. At that time, Priyanka Chopra was very excited and in a statement stated, "It feels fantastic to be associated with one of the biggest shows on Indian television today. It fits perfectly with my personality. I have been a huge fan of the show and thoroughly enjoy watching it.
I am looking forward to begin an all new innings in TV with this show which pumps up the adrenaline levels. It's exciting to be a part of the concept which is unique and is associated with some of the biggest names in cricket."
The special edition would be made for Colors channel and now what has happened is that the producer of the program is finding it almost impossible to get even one IPL player.
IPL and BCCI officials are under a lot of pressure now over the allegations of corruptions and financial mismanagements. The dismal performance of Indian cricket team in T20 World Cup 2010 has even created more negative impact on IPL in the minds of many cricket fans.
