Did Salman Khan refuse to do Bigg Boss 8?

We heard that the Dabangg Khan would produce the eighth season of Bigg Boss. But recently we were told that Sallu has finally called it quits and decided to stop playing host of the show. But why?

Touted as one of the most controversial Indian reality shows on TV, Bigg Boss has been eventful from its very first season. But season 7, which concluded recently, topped the controversy charts without a doubt. Not only the contestants, but host Salman Khan was also dragged through the muck by viewers of Bigg Boss 7. The Dabangg Khan was accused of having a bias for Tanishaa Mukherji and Armaan Kohli (contestants), after which he was subjected to a wave of negativity from his haters and, surprisingly, his legion of fans as well. The hatred built to the extent that some people said, ‘Salman is acting as the PR consultant for Tanishaa’. But things didn’t end there. The tamashaa between Salman and Kushal Tandon ultimately helped Kushal to become a hero in the eyes of the general public and seriously dented Bhai’s image.

Now we hear that Salman has taken his call and quit as host of the reality show. As he suggested already, he will not host season Bigg Boss 8. So who is replacing him in this hugely popular position? Reportedly, it’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela actor Ranveer Singh. All rumour? Or is there any truth in this tale that seems very tall indeed? And if it is true, and Salman has really quit, we wonder what really made the Wanted Khan do that? We think we have a fair idea…

As you all know, Salman returned to the silver screen after a gap of more than a year with Jai Ho. But the film failed to get the kind of response expected. Was it because people are still angry with him for all the tamashaa he created during Bigg Boss 7. Possible, hai na? So is that why he decided to quit as BB host? Or is it the new talk show he plans to helm, probably on a rival channel, that is coming in the way of his bond with Bigg Boss? We wait to find out…
