Seems, television stops at nothing to surprise you. Colors named Bollywood hunk Salman Khan as host of 'Bigg Boss 4'. From the surface, it appears like a swap deal.
Khan himself joked that it was indeed a swap. Though, he refused to be drawn into any comparison with superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who hosted the third season of the celebrity game show and was also approached for Season 4.
Now the big question is how Salman will carry off two shows on the rival channels -'Dus Ka Dum' on Sony and 'Bigg Boss 4' on Colors- that are neck-to-neck in the race for higher TRPs?
"My contract with them (Sony) is over.'Dus Ka Dum' is a good show and I feel connected to it. If they want me as host, then I'll consider it," said Khan.
It's surprising to hear what Khan said because it was believed that he was signed by Sony for three seasons of 'Dus Ka Dum' (DKD). The makers of 'Dus Ka Dum' must be surely repenting their scheming ways.
