After much speculation regarding the host, finally Salman Khan couldn’t reprise his role of Bigg Boss this season. Instead he recommended Sanjay Dutt for Bigg Boss Season 5. According to the sources, major reason for break in deal was remuneration, Salman was not comfortable to work on the same pay scale of Season 4.
The amount offered to Salman by Endemol India was not tempting enough to make Salman READY to come back for the new season.
Upon Salman’s recommendation, the production house is already in talks with Sanjay Dutt, the Munnabhai regarding the new season. He has already agreed to work for the new season. This will be Dutt’s first television stint, despite being for more than 25 years in the industry. As soon as Sanjay completes Karan Johar’s Agneepath, he will start shooting for Bigg Boss which is scheduled to go on air from early October.
According to the sources, Sanjay will don his Munnabhai look and style in the show, as that image revived his career and made him popular among the masses and classes.
