The next season of Bigg Boss is a year away. But the show continues to be in the news. The reality show starring Salman Khan is hugely popular, and always surrounded by controversies. In the last season, the host, in a fit of anger, said that he might not host the show anymore. He was fed-up with the way the contestants were behaving and was facing the repercussions. Whether or not he will host the show again remains to be seen. But sources confirm that he will produce it along with Endemol!
The production house had a five-year contract with Colors, which is completed. While Colors may not want to let go of their big property, news is that other channels are offering more moolah.
Insiders insist that the show is moving to Life Ok. “The format is likely to change. It will not have celebrities in it, but common people. The show may also have only men or only women participating in it. And no, Salman won’t be hosting it,” says the source. Perhaps because Salman Khan has to shoot two films this year. Kick and Sooraj Bharjatya’s next (Bade Bhaiyya). However, Deepak Dhar, CEO Endemol, denied that Bigg Boss was moving to another channel.
Life Ok will also be airing Salman’s show based on social causes by the end of this year, inform sources. Salman already has a Rs 500-crore deal with the Star Network for his films and moving to one of their channels seems only logical. Ajit Thakur, general manager, Life Ok remained unavailable for comment.
