Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who was last seen in blockbuster Bharat with Katrina Kaif, is now all set to host India's most controversial reality show, Bigg Boss. 

According to reports, Sallu was making Rs 12-14 crore per week last year in season 12, which was a huge jump in comparison to his fee for season 11, which was Rs 11 crore per episode. If rumours are to be believed, the actor might increase his fee for season 13 of Bigg Boss.

A report published in Koimoi suggests that Salman's fee will see a massive jump for season 13. The report says the Bharat star would be taking home a whopping Rs 31 crore per weekend (two episodes). Now it is said that this year, Bigg Boss might have 26 episodes where we will see Salman Khan. In that case, the actor will be earning around Rs 403 crore in total, which means Rs 100 crore more than the last season.

Bigg Boss 13 is expected to premiere on September 29 and names of various celebrities are doing the rounds.

Rumours are that the show may go on for 4 months this time and the grand finale will be on January 12, 2020. It’s not confirmed yet. However, there are rumours that also suggest that the show could be pushed to December this year. This time, Bigg Boss is undergoing a massive makeover. With a different location, it’s going to have a diverse mix of contestants compared to the previous seasons. Apparently, the theme for this season is horror.

Bigg Boss 13 makers have so far approached actors like Karan Patel, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Ankita Lokhaande, Jay Bhanushali, Mahhi Vij and Vivek Dahiya for the show. MTV Roadies contestant Navjyot Gurudatta and viral sensation Reena Dwivedi, woman officer from the public works department (PWD) have also been approached to be part of the show. There are reports that Salman Khan's Veer co-star Zareen Khan will also enter the show.
