Akshay stung by scorpion during shooting

    Akshay Kumar, who hosts the fourth Khatron Ke Khiladi's fourth season, continued shooting in South Africa over the weekend despite being stung by a scorpion!

    A source said, "Akshay sustained scorpion stings on his left index finger and the dorsum of his left hand. The bite caused swelling and extreme pain and an anti-venom lotion was applied four times. Ice was applied every four hours for about 10 minutes. Another ointment was applied after that and he was monitored the whole day. Though he was in extreme pain, he took it in his stride and continued shooting."

    Another source informed, "For all the seasons he has hosted earlier, Akshay always tests out the show's stunts before the contestants take them on. He is a bit of a daredevil who likes to perform all his action stunts in films himself. In the KKK series he handles all kinds of insects, bugs and creepy-crawlies before the contestants do."

    Though the unit wanted to take a break, Akshay insisted on continuing shooting. The source added, "This year he's very excited about KKK4 as some highly challenging stunts are being carried out."

    Akshay Kumar wrote on Twitter: "Filming in Cape Town, only moments ago I was bitten by a scorpion!....Sunbathing with my new friend, the Scorpion King! Can you see the size of these things! What a pleasure, but what a sting :)"
