'Bigg Boss': Salman Khan down with dengue; KJo replaces him
A couple of days ago, it was reported that filmmaker Karan Johar would host Friday's episode of Bigg Boss 16 and that the show's host Salman Khan would resume his duties on Saturday. However, it's now being reported that Khan has been diagnosed with dengue, and he won't join the sets until recovery. Therefore, Johar will be substituting for him for a few days.
Why does this story matter?
- To recall, Karan Johar hosted the first season of Bigg Boss's OTT version last year.
- To see him back on the show will be a treat for fans.
- A recent promotional video shared by Colors TV also features Johar as the host, which confirms that he has been roped in as Khan's replacement for now.
- Meanwhile, an official confirmation of Khan's diagnosis is awaited.
Khan to join once he recovers from dengue
Reportedly, Khan will resume his duties as the Bigg Boss host only after he recovers from dengue. He has been advised by the doctors to take proper rest. Khan has also been shooting for his upcoming film Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. Currently, the makers are shooting with the other actors in the movie; Khan will join the sets after recovery, said reports.
Colors TV's recent promo featuring Johar
Meanwhile, a recent promo shared by Colors TV showed Johar questioning BB16 contestant Gori Nagori, accusing her of provoking other housemates and asking her if she wants to leave. "This provocation that Gori did, is it intended to hurt or not? You threatened Bigg Boss too. Gori, you want to stay here or want to leave the show?" he asked her in the promo.
