Salman Khan is all set to host Bigg Boss 12 from September 16 this year. Given the popularity and success he has given to the show with his style of hosting, it seems the makers and producers are in no mood to let him go. Last year, he charged 11 crores per episode and 2018 may just see a rise in his already jaw-dropping pay cheque. Anyway, coming to the show, this year we’ll see a completely different avatar of the actor. The team is planning to make this year’s season totally drastic from the previous ones.
A source says, “This time, the series is set to redefine the concept of awesome twosome with its theme ‘vichitra jodis’. Usually, the word ‘jodi’ is synonymous with a husband-wife, boyfriend-girlfriend, etc. But the makers have extended it to saas-bahu, boss-employee, mama-bhanja and others. So, contestants will enter the house with another member who is known to them.” It continues, “This time, the show kickstarts a month earlier than usual. Salman, who had to wrap up work on Dus Ka Dum 3 before flying off to Malta for Bharat, took a day off from his schedule and completed his commitment to the channel.”
Salman has shot for four different promos simultaneously, ask the source about the same and it informs, “The Dabangg actor adds a new dimension to BB with his swag and wit. He came up with some creative inputs while filming the first look and the team liked them. In the first one, he will be seen playing himself — an actor, who talks about the world of showbiz and the different jodis that became popular — whether it’s Ram Lakhan or Karan Arjun. In the second, he dons the role of a class teacher. Salman is known to reprimand contestants when they go the wrong way on the show, but he has never played a teacher on screen before.”
It adds, “The other two have him playing more ‘desi’ characters, Salman will be seen as a babu working in a government office, discussing the pros and cons of the job. This will be followed by him dressed as a village sutradhar, clad in a kurta pyjama. He won’t have any jodidaar with him in the sneak-peek, but will be the task master for all the contestants.”
