However, when contacted, Deepak Dhar, managing director of Endemol India, which produces the show, denied any such change. “No, this news is untrue. The show is on Colors,” he responded via SMS.
While actor Salman Khan hosted the last four seasons, Arshad Warsi hosted the first one. Shilpa Shetty and Amitabh Bachchan turned host for the second and third seasons, respectively.
The show is an Indian adaptation of Big Brother. The last season titled, Bigg Boss - Saath 7, was won by model-turned-actor Gauahar Khan.
Even while the seventh season was on , their was speculation that host Salman Khan would produce the next season due to differences between the channel and producers. Khan was apparently unhappy as the channel had hidden some show related matters from him.
