The recent season of the popular reality show, Bigg Boss is all set to hit your TV screens with the most adorable host, Salman Khan. The actor has successfully hosted the last 4 seasons of Bigg Boss. The channel confirmed the news about Salman hosting the show.
“Can’t wait for Season 8?#BiggBoss. Coming soon with @BeingSalmanKhan. Presented by @snapdeal. The Biggest Reality Show @colorstv #snapdeal,” Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors, posted on his Twitter page Tuesday.
Rumour mills were abuzz that Salman, who has hosted four seasons of the reality show, may not return to anchor it this time as he was reportedly in no mood for it.
In fact, Salman had last month said: “There is a possibility (that I may host the upcoming season of ‘Bigg Boss’) and there is no possibility also.”
When he was asked as to who will be a good host for the show, if not him, he had said: “If not me, then I think Shah Rukh Khan will be a great host for this season of ‘Bigg Boss’.”
The buzz even hit the news that either Shah Rukh Khan or Ranbir Kapoor would step in to the shoes of Salman Khan as host. The ‘Kick’ star too was quoted expressing disinterest in resuming his post of an anchor in the show. “I have no idea. I like the format. It teaches me a lot but also takes a lot out of me. I am not too sure. Let’s see,” he told the media.
Audience are keenly awaiting its new season. Now since all the clouds of heavy rumours have been swiped by the officials, the news surely makes Salman’s ardent fans happier.
The show follows the Big Brother format, which was first developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. A number of contestants live in a house and are isolated from the rest of the world. A Bigg Boss House is built for every season. The House has no TV connection, no telephones, no Internet connection, clocks, pen or paper.
Contestants nominate two of their peers for eviction every week. The contestants who receive the most nominations would face a public vote. Out the nominated contestants, one would eventually got evicted from the House. However, there were exceptions to the process as dictated by Bigg Boss.
