Mumbai: Well, here’s a piece of good news for all those who really want Salman Khan to host the popular TV show ‘Dus Ka Dum’ once again. Bollywood’s enfant terrible Salman Khan is being paid a whopping Rs 1.5 crore per episode for ‘Big Boss 4’. And apparently, the actor might return to the third season of ‘Dus Ka Dum’ in case he is paid according to his current fee at ‘Big Boss 4’.

News has it that with Salman’s exit from ‘Dus Ka Dum’ not being final, the actor is intently wooed back and in case he gets what ‘Big Boss 4’ pays him (ie Rs 1.5 crore per episode of the show), chances are that Salman might reconsider to host the popular game show once again.

Salman Khan is being wooed by Siddharth Basu, the producer of ‘Dus Ka Dum’. Talking to a news daily on this new found development, a source said, "Salman is very close to Basu and his wife. They`re like family. When the deal for the new season of ‘Dus Ka Dum’ fell through with the channel, Basu stepped in. Now that Salman has agreed to do ‘Bigg Boss’ for Rs 1.5 crore per episode, Basu has re-opened negotiations. Salman will be back on ‘Dus Ka Dum’ after ‘Bigg Boss’ is over."

Meanwhile, a source from ‘Bigg Boss’ throws light on Salman’s part in the show as, "Salman`s role as a host will be based on the motto: `Doston ka dost, dushmanon ka dushman.` Salman won`t be a mellow, detached anchor. He will get right into the problems of the contestants. And if he believes one of the contestants is wrong, usski to band bajaa dega. Salman has been brought in because he is unpredictable and entertaining."

Well, one thing is for sure that Salman fans are dying to see him on the idiot box.
