Alright! ‘Bigg Boss 4’ is slated for a year-end launch. Colors though have begun the hunt for a host and the inmates.
Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan was slated to continue his tryst with ‘Bigg Boss’ but Big B chose ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ instead. That left Colors to look for an able replacement. Shah Rukh Khan was earlier said to have stepped into Big B’s shoes, but reports say that King Khan has turned down the offer as he’s busy shooting in Bali for Don 2. The same report says that Colors is looking to Akshay Kumar to bail them out, and if he refuses too, then they might opt for a non-filmy celebrity. Akshay is highly improbable as he will be hosting ‘Master Chef India’ on a rival channel around the same time.
The speculative game has just begun expect, more probable hosts ad contestants to emerge. Apparently, we’ve been amused to hear the name of Sachin Tendulkar. Yes, you’ve heard it right! The great India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on ‘Bigg Boss’.
A little birdie from the production informs, “There is plenty of speculation surrounding ‘Bigg Boss’. Most of it is coming from the media. What I can tell you is that some time back, we did hear the name of Shah Rukh as a probable host. Colors want the show to be much bigger than last time. Some even spoke of having Tendulkar. That is highly improbable though. Perhaps, the channel might want him as a guest in one of the episodes”.
Well, the source itself has ruled out the possibility of Sachin hosting. We have our doubts whether Tendulkar will even entertain any thoughts of making guest appearance. If an Amitabh, SRK or Aamir were to host the show, Tendulkar might just entertain thoughts of being generous guest.
As ‘Bigg Boss’ fans, we certainly long to see Sachin on the show. Let’s hope the Sachin that the birdie talked aobut is Tendulkar and not his doppelganger Balbir Chand. The speculation game has just begun.
