Salman Khan, who has been hosting the reality show Bigg Boss for the past five seasons, has confirmed that he won’t be able to anchor the last four episodes of Bigg Boss 8 due to prior commitments with the makers of film Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Salam Khan even stated that Farah Khan may step into his shoes.
While it was rumoured for the longest time that Salman Khan will not be hosting Bigg Boss, it is now confirmed as Salman made it official at the recently held Big Star Entertainment Awards 2014.
“From January 2015, I’ll get busy with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. I am shooting for that film in Rajasthan and up and down from there would be difficult for me. So, I won’t be able to do the last four episodes of Bigg Boss 8. I think Farah is doing those episodes.” stated Salman Khan while his interaction with the media on the red carpet of the Big Star Entertainment Awards 2014.
Salman Khan was contracted to shoot for Bigg Boss 8 till January 04, 2015 but looks like the makers have decided to extend the reality show by a whole month and that’s the main reason for Salman’s exit.
It has been learnt that producers had initially approached filmmaker Karan Johar and Anil Kapoor to host the show, but, finally zeroed in on Farah Khan.
Salman Khan, who at times has got upset with the house mates, had also mentioned during the last season that he might never host Bigg Boss ever. But he was back this season.
He has anchored the show with a lot of style, amidst a lot of controversies, speculations, love and appreciation.
However, it remains to be seen whether the director will be able to maintain the same fan following as Salman Khan and command the same respect that he does with the house mates.
Farah, over to you!!
