Will Salman or won't Salman has become the question asked before each new season of reality show Bigg Boss. It appears that for season nine, at least, he will.
After exiting the previous season as it went into an extended version titled Halla Bol, Salman Khan will return to host Bigg Boss 9, BollywoodLife reports.
"The modalities are fast being worked out. We will start the show as per Salman's availability of dates," the report quotes a source as saying. (Also Read: A Sneak Peek Into Bigg Boss Halla Bol Finale)
Show producers will not be requiring the services of actors such as Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh, reportedly considered as possible replacements for Salman.
The 49-year-old actor is believed to have been enticed back to hosting duty for the previous season with a salary reportedly double of what he'd been paid in previous seasons. Salman, who has hosted Bigg Boss since 2010, was replaced by director Farah Khan on Halla Bol. Salman will be seen in Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo next.
