The ninth season of "Bigg Boss" will be more entertaining not only because of the contestants and tasks, but also due to the hosts.

"Bigg Boss 9" is back with "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor Salman Khan as the host, but the latest reports state that he will be accompanied by another actor.

BIGG BOSS Newz, whose predictions came true last season, tweeted that "Singh Is Bliing" actor Akshay Kumar will join Salman as a co-host of "Bigg Boss 9".

The Twitter handle quoted a blog, which had cited a source close to Akshay as saying that he "will be playing some part in the show".

Rumour also has it that other actors would host the show along with Salman.

However, these are just rumours and the makers of the show have not confirmed the news about other stars hosting the show with Salman.

Meanwhile, the makers recently revealed the premiere date of the show. "Bigg Boss 9" will premiere on Colors TV at 9 pm on 11 October and Salman will return as the host of the reality show.

But after the opening episode, the show's timing will change from 9 pm to 10.30 pm. It will be aired from Monday to Friday, at 10.30 pm.

Talking about the contestants, there have been speculations about several celebrities being approached for the show and some have also confirmed it. But, the makers of "Bigg Boss 9" have recently stated that the final list of contestants will be revealed on 28 September.
