The grand finale of ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’ took place on August 14th, and it was YouTuber Elvish Yadav who emerged as the winner. Now, discussions about ‘Bigg Boss 17’ have already begun. While Bollywood actor Salman Khan is expected to host the upcoming season, there are reports suggesting that he might take a break at some point during the season.
Film Project Set to Begin by Year’s End
Salman Khan is expected to begin working on a new film project towards the end of this year, which may limit his availability for hosting ‘Bigg Boss 17.’ He has reportedly informed the show’s makers about this scheduling conflict.
Makers Must Consider Salman’s Terms
The channel and the show’s makers recognize the significant value Salman Khan brings as the host of ‘Bigg Boss.’ They are eager to retain him for ‘Bigg Boss 17.’ Negotiations have taken place between Salman and his team to secure his participation in the show.
Initially, Salman Khan had considered hosting only ‘Bigg Boss OTT.’ However, the channel and makers have successfully convinced him to host ‘Bigg Boss 17’ as well, taking into account his conditions and preferences.
In His Absence, the Producers Are Searching for a Substitute
Under the agreed terms, Salman Khan will host only the initial and final episodes of the show. This arrangement allows him to balance his hosting duties with his film commitments. Given Salman’s limited availability, the show’s producers have begun their search for a temporary replacement to host the mid-season episodes.
Production for the Next Film Will Commence in November
Salman Khan has an upcoming film project with Dharma Productions, which will be directed by Vishnuvardhan, known for ‘Shershaah.’ The shooting for this film is set to commence in November. In addition to this project, Salman has his sights on other ventures such as ‘Tiger 3’ and ‘No Entry Main Entry.’
This Season’s Theme Could Be Singles vs. Couples
The upcoming season of the show is rumored to revolve around the theme of “Single Vs Couples.” Several celebrities and personalities have been approached by the makers, including Twinkle Arora, Samarth Jurel, Esha Malviya, Alice Kaushik, Sumedh Mudgalkar, Neil Bhatt, Aishwarya Sharma, Ankita Lokhande-Vicky Jain, and popular YouTubers like Saurav Joshi, Anurag Doval, Harsh Beniwal, and Kanwar Dhillon, who may participate in the show this time.
Grand Premiere Scheduled for October 15th
The upcoming season of the show is expected to air next month in October. According to sources, it will begin the day after the finale of the reality show ‘Khatro Ke Khiladi 13’ and may have its grand premiere on October 15.
