In April, Endemol Shine India, the production house behind Bigg Boss, shared a teaser poster featuring Salman Khan. The poster, which asked the audience who they wanted to see as the next host, was later removed, fueling speculation about the host change.

Controversies Surrounding Salman Khan

This news also coincides with recent incidents involving Salman Khan. On April 14, gunshots were fired outside his residence in Mumbai, with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang claiming responsibility.

Bigg Boss OTT 3 is set to premiere in June, with the exact date yet to be announced. Fans eagerly await to see how Anil Kapoor brings his unique flair to the popular reality show.
