The next season of the controversial reality show "Bigg Boss" has started making the news already. For five years, "Bigg Boss" has become synonymous with Bollywood actor Salman Khan, and people look forward to watch the show due to the actor.

Salman hosted the controversial reality show for five years, but last year his fans were left disheartened after he made an exit from the show midway.

However, fans of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor can heave a sigh of relief as reports suggest that the actor will host "Bigg Boss 9".

According to, Salman will host the ninth season of the reality show, which is expected to start soon.

"The modalities are fast being worked out. We will start the show as per Salman's availability of dates," quoted a source as saying.

In May, there were reports that Salman has charged a hefty fee to host "Bigg Boss 9". But before the release of his film "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Salman said that the channel has not approached him yet.

"I don't know. The channel hasn't asked me. I think Farah (Khan) is doing it. She hosted the latter part of it last year and the TRPs had increased. They realised Farah is a better choice!" DNA quoted Salman as saying.
