The buzz around controversial reality show, Bigg Boss, has begun and a 'leaked' list of  probable contestants for ninth season of the show is going viral online. Now, we have some confirmed news for Bigg Boss fans: Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who had to leave the show mid-way last season due to prior commitments, is set to return with Bigg Boss 9.

"Colors welcomes #BhajrangiBhaijaan @BeingSalmanKhan to #biggboss9 Presented by @Snapdeal Powered by @Oppomobileindia This October @ColorsTV," Colors CEO Raj Nayak tweeted on Friday. In fact, the actor is already at work for Bigg Boss 9.

A source told us that he's shooting a promo for the new season in Mumbai on Friday. Salman, 49, hosted the last season of the show, but later stepped down from its extended edition Bigg Boss Halla Bol which was hosted by choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan. At that time, he had to attend to his other film commitments.

Thereafter, there were reports that Salman might not return as the host of the show due to his busy schedule. However, now it's clear that he will be back!

The Dabangg star has hosted a total of four seasons of the show, which is an Indian version of internationally acclaimed reality format Celebrity Big Brother. The show involves celebrity contestants locked inside a purpose-built house for three months under constant camera surveillance and with no luxury and limited amenities of life.

The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor will next be seen in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo but he's keeping busy by promoting his forthcoming production Hero, the title song of which he has crooned himself.
