Akshay raps live at Dare 2 Dance launch

The actor, looking dapper suited booted, entered the stage and started rapping like a professional with the audio of the song playing in the background. He did a little jig with two contestants of the show as well.

‘I consider myself a bad singer. These guys (the channel officials) wanted someone with a besura awaaz (tuneless voice), so I had no choice but to do it,’ he quipped.

Akshay, who is the host and mentor on the show, says he felt a strong connect with Dare 2 Dance as it mixes the two worlds of dance and adventure. That's why he went out of his way to ensure that it had an edge over other reality shows.

Ajit Thakur, executive vice president and general manager of channel Life OK, said when he took the idea of doing a dance-based reality show in a studio to Akshay, the actor gave a suggestion: ‘Don't have a set!’
