Bigg Boss is back, and how! The popular reality show is all set to come to our TV screens in just a matter of days and of course, any and every information which is even remotely related to the show is making headlines.

The popularity of the show increased manifold when Salman Khan was roped in as the host, back in 2012. Barring this year, every other year, rumors about Salman not willing to host the show do the rounds; much to the dismay of the show’s fans as for most of them, imagining a season of Bigg Boss without Salman is impossible.

Fortunately for them, Salman is back with his charm as the host of the eleventh season. With a confusing yet interesting theme of ‘Neighbours’, this season will see a mix of celebrities and commoners who will stay put in the closed house for over 100 days with more than 80 cameras capturing all their movements.

Now every day there’s some or the other news about the show, whether it’s related to this year’s tentative contestants list, the past controversies associated with the show and even Salman’s outfits. But what manages to garner most attention each year is Salman’s remuneration.  

Given the superstar that he is, we don’t expect him to charge anything less than a few crores. Apparently, he charged around Rs. 2.5 crore per episode from Season 4 to Season 6. Then, he doubled his fees to Rs. 5 crore for ‘Bigg Boss 7′. For ‘Bigg Boss 8′, he is estimated to have charged Rs. 5.5 crore per episode and for ‘Bigg Boss 9′, he increased his fees to Rs. 7-8 crore per episode and for the previous season 10, he took home Rs. 8 crore per episode.

But according to reports, for the eleventh season, Salman will get a mind-boggling paycheck of Rs 11 crore per episode. Yes, per episode. Now the show is expected to go over a period of 13 weeks of shoot, so that means that Salman will earn more than Rs. 250 crores in just three months.

Fun fact: Our calculators were ready to explode after arriving at this number, and so were our minds.

It was highly likely of this news being a rumor so at the press conference of Bigg Boss last night, a journalist asked Salman about his fees.

The actor, without directly answering the question, started laughing loudly while walking on the stage and went on towards Raj Nayak, COO, Viacom 18. He then started humming a song from his movie ‘Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega’ and said, “Bolo na, Bolo na”. That is when Raj Nayak took the mike and said, “Salman doesn’t come so cheap.”

Although this is hardly confirmation, the fact that the actor didn’t deny these claims says quite a bit.

The truth, however, would probably be revealed once the season gets over.

On the movie front, Salman is gearing up for the promotions of his upcoming movie ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ which would release in December.

But if that feels too far, mark your calendars for October 1 as the eleventh season of Bigg Boss will start to air.

And it’s a wrap! Don’t forget to join us on 1st Oct at 9PM, first day first show! @BeingSalmanKhan
