This will be for the first time in four years that Bigg Boss 8 will be aired without Bollywood actor Salman Khan hosting the weekend episodes.

Salman Khan has confirmed that he won't be able to anchor the last four episodes of the show's Weekend Ka Vaar due to prior commitments with the makers of film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He says filmmaker Farah Khan may step into his shoes.

"From January (2015), I'll get busy with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. I'm shooting for that film in Rajasthan and up and down from there would be difficult for me. So, I won't be able to do the last four episodes (of the show)," Salman said on the sidelines of the Big Star Entertainment Awards 2014 on Thursday.

"I think Farah is doing those episodes," he added.

Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan also stars Kareena Kapoor and it will hit screens in mid-2015.
