Bigg Boss 15: Salman Khan’s show gets an extension till February end

Salman Khan has such star power and magnetism that his directors keep repeating him, and the producers of his reality show, Bigg Boss, refuse to let him go. Last year, Bigg Boss 14 received a new twist and a pleasant surprise for Salman’s fans when the program’s producers decided to extend the very popular reality show till Valentine’s Day 2021 and add six additional wild card entries to make it more appealing to viewers. Fans of Bigg Boss will be surprised again this year, as the show’s producers have reportedly decided to extend the show.

Says a trade source, “Bigg Boss 15 was to be held till January 16 but the makers, going by the show’s popularity, extended it to January 31. Now, apparently, they will extend this season till the end of February. Apart from the high TRP’s and excellent viewership the show holds across India, the ongoing pandemic is also a reason that the show has been given an extension. The BB set at Film City has the contestants living in a bio bubble and with utmost safety precautions taken for Salman and the rest of the team. Right now, introducing a new show when they have a hugely successful one already running with spiralling TRP’s, does not make sense.”

Like last year, the extended show will feature a slew of wild card entries, including Simba Nagpal, Rajiv Adatia, and Vishal Kotian, who will return to Bigg Boss 15 to compete against the new candidates.

“Salman also has no shoot going on currently as his Tiger 3 Delhi shoot has been postponed so he has given extra dates for the extension. Hence, Bigg Boss 15 will now apparently, get extended till the last week of February. Vishal tested positive a few days earlier but he can still re-enter after a few weeks, if he tests negative and gets well soon.”

In the first week of February, Salman is slated to head to Hyderabad to film an extended cameo for Godfather with Chiranjeevi. According to the insider, Salman has never had a problem with rushed shoots. “December was an extremely hectic month for Salman as he jumped from one project to another. After shooting for an action sequence at the Tiger 3 set, he flew to Riyadh for the Da-Bangg show, headed straight to the Bigg Boss sets for Weekend Ka Vaar and resumed shooting for the final schedule of Tiger 3 again in Mumbai till Christmas. When he can come from UAE to shoot for Bigg Boss 12 during Bharat, this is just Hyderabad. He has done it a number of times for Bigg Boss including the shoot of Tiger Zinda Hai and Race 3 in UAE again, Sultan and Kick. With every film, he has an overseas schedule clashing with Bigg Boss. It’s a seven-day schedule in Hyderabad for Godfather and it won’t be tough for Salman at all, to fly in and out to shoot for Bigg Boss 15.”
