Farah Khan replaces Salman Khan on Bigg Boss 8

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will no longer host the 8th edition of Bigg Boss, India’s most popular television reality show.

Sources close to COLORS’ say the television show was given a month’s extension, due to which Salman has decided to opt out of the show that he has hosted for 5 years.

There are reports that Salman decided to quit the show because of prior commitments to his upcoming Eid release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Happy New Year director Farah Khan will replace Salman as the host on Bigg Boss 8.

“The makers have planned to extend the show for a month. The production team had a meeting with the contestants for almost an hour and discussed the idea of extending the show for a month. Most of the contestants inside have agreed for 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”



  • That’s a good move I think. Because he know he can’t give proper time for big boss from nxt mnth so he leave it. While he would get 40 cr on that 4 weeks bt he is to much potential about his both work. that is a real hero I think

  • The concept of big boss is much better than any other reality show. Bt it was Salman khan who maked it popular. And it was not a cup of tea to host a show like it. I think no other host can Entertain us as Salman . As Salman hosted it so whoever come to host it will defiantly going to make the program flop

  • No salman no fun
    itz bettr for salmn to concentrate on his movies
    motty aunty is the right optn for tiz kind of shows

  • but d show was scheduled to end in 1st week of jan and acc to u colors bb schedule begins after first week of jan so hw cn there b clash of schedules?

    I think there is more to it than meets d eyes

  • disappointed with his decision….
    it’s ok….bcoz bajrangi bhaijaan is much more important than bigg boss….
    love u salman….waiting for bb.

  • WTf! No ways we want to see that lousy lady as the host. This must be a joke. The season is about to end and no ways we want to see it without salman.

  • But why??
    I can’t even imagine Big Boss without Salman. He was unmatchable as host and I don’t think, anyone else can do the same justice with that role.
    A big setback for colours, I must say.

  • I can’t be happy more than this ever! Finally, Salman has quit the show that I have never liked. I have just watched the weekend episodes for him.
    The makers are greedy for TRP. That’s why they want to extend it one more month. Now, Bigg Boss has gone down the drain!
