We now feel she doesn’t fit the bill and isn’t able to pull off Hindi as required for the show. We’re now in talks with Sunil Grover and working on dates. If all goes well, we will have him as the host.” Also Read - Akshay Kumar Says Not Him, His Mother Has Donated Rs 25 cr to 'Bharat Maa' For Coronavirus-Free Nation
