If reports are to be believed, Choreographer turned director Farah Khan will be replacing Salman Khan as ‘Bigg Boss 8’ host. Farah Khan, who is a big fan of the reality show, is likely to step in to Salman’s shoes from January onwards.Since its inception, Salman Khan has been hosting the show and now Farah Khan will take the host seat due to Salman’s hectic schedule in January. Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss contract ends on January 4th and the makers have decided to extend the show. Salman Khan will start shooting for Bajrangi Bhaijaan in Januaray. Karan Johar and Anil Kapoor are eventually approached for the show but finally they zeroed on Farah Khan.
Regarding extension of the show, the channel is excited after TRPs have gone up from initial weeks, hence wants to cash on to the good times. The production team reportedly, had a meeting with the housemates and most of them have apparently agreed to it. “Salman can’t host the show after the first week of January due to his choc-a-bloc schedule. Hence, after a lot of negotiations, they finally roped in Farah as the host,” reveals a source closely associated with the show. The superstar has already allotted his dates for Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ and so finding time for ‘Bigg Boss 8’ has been a great problem for him.Television is not new to Farah, she has in the past judged the reality show, ‘Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega’. Well, there has been no official confirmation about the same but it would be a treat to see Farah Khan hosting ‘Bigg Boss8’. Farah is known for her witty remarks and presence of mind.
