A thief, a bar dancer and a reality show drama queen as ‘inmates’, and Bollywood’s bad boy as the host—the fourth season of Bigg Boss, starting in October, is set to get a lot meaner.
HT City has come to know through sources from the host channel Colors that participants on the show include famous thief Davinder Singh alias Bunty, high profile bar dancer Tarannum, Rahul Mahajan’s wife Dimpy Ganguly, yesteryear actor Rajesh Khanna, and actress Sara Khan. "They have all signed on the dotted line," says our source.
The host? Actor Salman Khan, who will replace Amitabh Bachchan and is reportedly charging a lot more than Big B. Some are even saying that while Bachchan was paid 1.75 crore per episode, Sallu may pocket a cool 3.5-5 crore per episode.
Salman tells HT City that his role would be very different from that of other hosts’ in the previous seasons. "I will not be able to be a philosopher like Mr Bachchan, vivacious like Shilpa Shetty or humorous like Arshad (Warsi).
I’ll bring my own element to the show,” he says. Comparisons with Big B are inevitable, but Salman dodges them. “Why would I be compared with Mr Bachchan? His colleagues are Mr Shatrughan Sinha, Mr Vinod Khanna…so, a comparison would stand only if they would be doing the show,” he quips.
Here's a list of those who might be seen in the next season of Bigg Boss 4.
