Over the last three years, telly show ‘Bigg Boss’ has become synonymous with Salman Khan. For the upcoming season of the show, Salman is set to return as the host, contrary to the rumours that his arch rival Shahrukh Khan may land the job.
It can now be safely said that Shahrukh is pretty much out of consideration to host the seventh season of Bigg Boss. After much thought the show’s producers have fallen back on their trusted eyeball-grabber and TRP-raker Salman Khan. Not just that, Sallu is said to be getting a fee hike.
Last year, it’s believed that Salman pocketed about Rs. 2.5 crore per episode of the show. This year, he’s walking away with Rs. 3 crore per episode.
Buzz is that the superstar will soon shoot for a promo of the show. The promo will air in September.
According to a source close to Salman, “Shahrukh Khan was never in the consideration. Salman has been getting the show amazing TRPs. He is also happy with the production team and has signed on to do the next season.”
So far there has been no official confirmation of Salman Khan’s continued stint as the show’s host. But sources say Salman is very much on board for the show.
