After all the speculations over the "Bigg Boss 8" host, Salman Khan fans can finally heave a sigh of relief as the actor will return to host the show.

Khan, according to a report by India Today, who charged ₹2-3 crore per week in the last season, has reportedly doubled his fee and will now be paid ₹5-6 crore.

Since he is busy with a pile of films, Karan Johar's "Shuddhi" and Sooraj Barjatya's "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", and requires to give a fair amount of time to finish off his prior commitments, reports suggest that "Bigg Boss 8" will be shot keeping in mind the actor's schedule.

In the last season, the actor drew a lot of flak due to his biased opinions towards certain celebrity contestants. He even promised he would never return on the show and recently he jested that his arch-rival Shah Rukh Khan could be a good host for the show. However, putting all rumours to rest, a recent report confirmed his come-back on the reality show.

A few days ago, a source said Khan will finally return on "Bigg Boss" because he doesn't enjoy disappointing millions of fans. An official statement hasn't been put out by the makers or Khan, and only time will tell if the actor will host the show and take home a whopping ₹5-6 crore.

Busy promoting action thriller "Kick", Khan's presence on the show fuels viewership instantly. His witty remarks and unbeatable comic timing makes for an entertaining watch.

"Bigg Boss 7", which had the tagline "Jannat ka Wow aur Jahannam ka Aaw Dekhege Saath Saath", saw model and actress Gauhar Khan as the winner. Last season was a controversial one as contestants Tanishaa Mukerji and Armaan Kohli's intimate videos made the headlines and stirred up a storm on the web.
