The television show ‘Bigg Boss’ has gone bigger and better this season. They have not only managed to retain Salman Khan but have also roped in Sanjay Dutt to host season 5.

This will be the 1st time ever on Bigg Boss that two of the biggest Bollywood celebrities will co-host the show together.

The speculations were rife that Salman Khan wouldn’t be able to come back to host the show due to his busy schedule. It was also said that it was Salman Khan who suggested Sanjay Dutt. But now Salman will be co-hosting the show with Sanjay.

Talking about the show Salman said, “I greatly enjoyed working on Bigg Boss last season and received a lot of positive response from fans and well-wishers alike. It's an exciting format that makes for compelling viewing and I am glad to be back for another season. I think it's a great move by COLORS to also sign-up Sanjay Dutt for Bigg Boss Season-5. It can only mean one thing for the viewers - more excitement and a differentiated appeal for this season."

Sanjay Dutt will be making his small screen debut with the show and he said that he is elated to be co-hosting the show with Salman Khan.

"I am extremely delighted that I am making my foray into television through a concept like Bigg Boss - a show that holds a nation's attention for more than 3 months”, said Sanjay.

"I loved watching Salman host the last season...I thought he was mind-blowing with his sense-of-humor and inimitable style”, he added.  

The show is set to begin in the month of October.
