Bollywood actor Salman Khan is all set to return with the 13th season of the reality show Bigg Boss in September this year. A Bollywoodhungama report claimed that the makers have decided to let go of the commoner contestants for the upcoming season, following the dipping TRPs. The makers have also constructed the sets in Film City, ditching Lonavala that has been home to Bigg Boss for past 12 years.

“This decision has been taken after the debacle from last year, where the choices of the commoner participants were questioned blatantly,” a Bollywoodlife report quoted a source as saying. It added that TV actor Karan Patel and Zarine Khan may be seen on the latest season of the show.
