Bigg Boss 9 is around the corner and the most talked about topic prior to the show - "Who will host the show?" has yet again taken the center stage. Whether Salman Khan, who has hosted the controversial reality show for the past five seasons, will be hosting the upcoming season or not is the predominant question that keeps everyone guessing.
Colors channel has been insistent that Salman host the show like always but, the reportedly Salman's busy schedule is keeping him from taking up the Season this year. Hosting Bigg Boss 8 too was a difficulty for Salman, but when the channel turned desperate to pay him double the amount, he agreed to host the show.
Farah Khan replaced Salman at the end of the season when he ran out of dates. And the rating picked up shocking everyone. And now, Salman seems to take this as the reason to stay away from the show.
"I don't know. The channel hasn't asked me. I think Farah (Khan) is doing it. She hosted the latter part of it last year and the TRPs had increased. They realised Farah is a better choice!" DNA quoted Salman as saying.
But, there are reports that say the channel is in talks with the Dabangg actor finalising the dates. "The modalities are fast being worked out. We will start the show as per Salman's availability of dates," a website quoted a source close to the show.
Now, whether the channel will approach Salman yet again for the forthcoming season, Bigg Boss 9, or will they opt for Farah will be revealed soon.
