Salman Khan is set to host two television shows this year. Besides Bigg Boss 11, the superstar will be seen in the new season of the game show, Dus Ka Dum, in Sony TV channel.

Even as the news of Salman reprising his role as the host of the new season of Dus Ka Dum has already left his fans excited, rumour has it that Akshay Kumar is likely to replace the superstar in the game show.

According to a Bollywood Life report, the Khiladi actor may replace Salman as the makers are having issues with the latter's team quoting an astronomical sum and as well as his dates, which are clashing with Colors' Bigg Boss 11.

Rumour also has it that the Toilet-Ek Prem Katha actor is keen on doing popular TV shows and he even grabbed the offer of The Great Indian Laughter show. Now, if the deal with the Airlift actor materialises, then the upcoming season of Dus Ka Dum will see Akshay as the new host.

Besides Dus Ka Dum, Sony TV is also gearing up for the next season of Kaun Banega Crorepati with Amitabh Bachchan. The channel is also working on a new comedy show with Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar.

On the work front, Salman is busy promoting his upcoming film, Tubelight, which is set to hit the theatres on June 23. Akshay, on the other hand, is shooting for Padman.
