Speaking of Bigg Boss‘ return, Salman Khan said:

“After this show ends, we shall move on to Pathan, Tiger and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.”

“By the time those will end, some 8 months later, it will be time for Bigg Boss to return with Bigg Boss 15 and if that returns, your return is also guaranteed.

“I will also return, if they offer me a 15% raise!”

Ahead of Bigg Boss 15, a report revealed that Salman Khan earned more than £248,000 per episode from seasons four to six. The actor’s fees increased to almost £500,000 for Bigg Boss 7.

Also according to reports, the actor took almost £200,000 per episode for the show’s 13th season.

Bigg Boss 14 is currently on the home stretch, and the show is seeing some serious competition between Rubina Dilaik, Aly Goni, Rahul Vaidya, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Nikki Tamboli and Rakhi Sawant.

Sawant has come under some fire in recent episodes of the show. Salman Khan lost his temper with her and her behaviour during the ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ episode.

The episode aired on Saturday, February 6, 2021.

Rakhi Sawant had been lashing out at the likes of Abhinav Shukla and Rubina Dilaik.

Khan called out all the contestants for their behaviour on the show, particularly for their statements about each other’s performances being “for content”.

He asked them: “Do you think I am talking to you like this for content?”

Tamboli and Sawant have already made it through to the show’s final week.

Now, four contestants remain, and nominations continue for their elimination from the show.
