Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars in India. He is not only called the king of box-office but is also known for hosting TV shows like Bigg Boss and Dus Ka Dum. Bigg Boss has become top TRP generating show and is now all set to enter the 13th season. According to a report, Salman Khan, who has become the face of the show, will be charging whopping Rs.12-14 crores per episode of Bigg Boss 13.
The amount is 50 times more than last season where he charged Rs.12 crore per episode. The split amounts to Rs.31 crores for a weekend worth of shooting and a total of Rs.403 crores for 26 episodes of Bigg Boss 11. If these reports are correct, then Salman Khan will become the highest paid TV host in the history of the Indian entertainment industry.
For the uninitiated, Bigg Boss is a reality TV show where celebs are invited to stay and survive in Bigg Boss house for some months. Last year they had included some ordinary people in the house, but due to low rating, that concept is now dropped. Keeping this in mind there are few rumors popping up in media. If leaks are to be believed then the makers have approached actors Jay Bhanushali, Mahi Vij and Roadies fame Navjyot Gurudatta to be a part of the show. Besides this, there are rumors that celebrities Karan Patel, Zareen Khan and Rajpal Yadav might also be a part of Bigg Boss Season 13. The show will hit the screen from 29th September this year.
Salman Khan’s recent release Bharat, which also starred Katrina Kaif in the lead, did wonder at the Box-office. Salman Khan is now busy with Inshallah opposite Alia Bhatt. Other movies which he is busy in are Dabbang 3 opposite Sonakshi Sinha and Kick two opposite Jacqueline Fernandez. Salman is producing The Kapil Sharma Show and will also produce Nach Baliye’s new season.
