Successfully running for quite a long time now, the Indian television game show franchise Bigg Boss is preparing to stream  its 13th season this year, with B-town Dabangg Salman Khan hosting the show for the tenth time in a row.

According to sources, Big Boss Season 13 will be aired on September 29, 2019 and the finale will be staged on January 10, 2019.

Taking inspiration from the Dutch series ‘Big Brother’, Big Boss debuted in India on November 3, 2006. Since then, the show has kept drawing audience's attention with all the high-voltage drama among the contestants inside the ‘Big Boss’ house.

For every season,  the franchise experiments with the theme, genre and fields from which it invites its contestants. Apparently, this season will show red signals to commoners and open gates to television and movie stars only. Although speculations have been made about Karan Patel, Zareen Khan and few other actors being enlisted for the season, no confirmation has been made yet.

Moving on to the ‘Salman highlight’ in the show, the actor has reportedly charged a whopping amount of Rs 31 crore per weekend making it a total of Rs 403 crore for all the 26 episodes in the season. There are also news about Salman’s offer of producing the Big Boss franchise along with few other shows like the ‘Kapil Sharma Show’ and ‘Nach Baliye’.

Salman Khan has recently given a box office hit with ‘Bharat’. His changed taste in picking up scripts and ‘out of the box’ performance in his latest release ‘Bharat’ has been much appreciated by fans. In an interview with Pinkvilla, the actor has revealed about two of his upcoming projects. One is ‘Dabangg’ franchise casting Sonakshi Sinha and another new talent. His other project is Sanjay Leela Bansali’s most awaited film ‘Inshallah’.

Showering praises on his co-star Alia Bhatt, the Bharat star told Pinkvilla that ‘Inshallah’ is a beautiful love story “with all hearts, all smiles, fun, great music, visuals and beautiful Alia…”

Fans are now eagerly waiting for the 'Salman-Alia' pair up on silver screen with Inshallah’s release.
