Boss 8's host Salman Khan will be hosting for one last
weekend and will be no longer be rocking the weekends after that.
Khan is confirmed to take over the job from January.
Bigg Boss 8 makers have decided to extend the show for
a month and due to his tight schedule, Salman Khan has decided to
opt of the show. Farah Khan, the choreographer/director/actor is
roped in to fill his shoes as the host of the show.
The makers of the show have decided to extend the high voltage
reality show for four more weeks and they have already discussed
this with the contestants and have received green signal from them.
But things could not be worked out for Salman to continue hosting
the show because of his Bajrangi Bhaijaan shooting
"Salman can't host the show after the first week of January due
to his choc-a-bloc schedule. Hence, after a lot of negotiations,
they finally roped in Farah as the host," added a source close to
It was reported that the production team first approached Karan
Johar, and then Anil Kapoor to replace Khan. However, both of them
refused. Hence, Farah who apparently loves the show was asked to
come on board.
It is often said that Salman did not want to host Bigg Boss
8 in the first place this season and with this trial period of
Farah replacing Salman will give the makers as well as the viewers
to get to know how things will be like when Salman won't be the
host of the show.
