Salman Khan hikes his fee for ‘Bigg Boss 10’

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has hiked his free for hosting the tenth season of the popular reality show, ‘Bigg Boss’. Salman Khan was initially paid around Rs 6-8 crore per episode but now he will get 30% hike.

Salman Khan has been successfully hosting the reality show ‘Bigg Boss’  "One of Salman's conditions was that his fee be increased. He is one of the reasons the reality show gets a high TRP and the makers don't want to compromise on that. Therefore, they have agreed to give him the hike. He is already the highest paid TV show host," says another source.

‘Bigg Boss 10’ will be different in the sense that this time both celebrity and commoners will take part on the show. The channel has asked people to send in entries and they will be judged by the videos send to them. The format looks like the show will be a runaway success.

Also, every year new names pop up as possible hosts for Bigg Boss. But this year before all the speculations start, we can confirm that Salman Khan will be hosting season 10.
