Salman Khan has been approached by Siddharth Basu’s production house to bring back his popular show Dus Ka Dum through its third season.
A source says, “The production house owns a format and is checking with Salman if he can allot them bulk dates. Things are at very early stage. The channel which showed Dus Kadam earier is now revive some of their old hit shows. So Dus Ka Dum definitely tops the list and they are waiting for Salman to give them an official confirmation.
Though at the moment, the channel is not sure if they want to bring back the old format or launch the new quiz show but the channel is said to be keen on the earlier format. The channel is also planning to bring back shows like Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao and Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.
“Salman enjoyed hosting this show and in a recent interview had said that he would love to do another season. Also he is said to have signed a contract of Rs 90 crore to do three seasons but has only done two seasons so far.”
Basu says, “We’re presently not in talks with Salman Khan but the channel is in a better position to comment.”
There is a strong buzz that Salman Khan and the production house Endemol -- the producer of Bigg Boss -- are having some issues with the channel on which Bigg Boss is currently broadcast. As a result of this ideological tiff, the invested parties have apparently decided to conduct the next season of the controversial reality show on another channel.
A source close to the production house says, “Salman had initially hinted that it’s going to be his last season with the show as there were some unresolved problems between him and the channel. Lately, Endemol too has had some issues with the channel.
According to sources, Salman has been peeved with the channel for keeping some issues hidden from him which he would come to know of only when he interacted with the production house. Salman’s manager and the channel denied this and the production house remained unavailable for the comment.
