New Delhi: Bigg Boss 9 has bagged all the attention ever since it has been announced. But what made the viewers ecstatic was Salman Khan's return to the show.

Yes! Salman Khan will be hosting the much awaited Bigg Boss 9.

Interestingly, Bigg Boss 9 has come with a new concept this season – ‘double trouble'. All the contestants will be seen in pairs on the show this time, be it siblings, couples, spouses etc.

However, it is a ‘double' game for Salman Khan as well, but in terms of salary.

Reportedly the actor will be paid double his earlier salary for hosting the 9th season of the show.

Earlier, Salman Khan created a buzz during Bigg Boss 8 after he made a statement that he might not be seen in the next season of the show.

The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star also exited from the show last year following some professional commitments. Although Salman Khan was replaced by Farah Khan later, she could not match the superstar in terms of TRP and popularity despite being quite entertaining.

The makers, who were concerned about raising the TRP and popularity of the show, finally approached Salman Khan, who then expressed his constraints in coming back as a host for season 9.

According to media reports, ‘double' salary is the reason that tempted Salman to host BB9.

Nevertheless, Salman's magic has started working and the Bigg Boss fans are way too excited for season 9 to go on air.

Now only time will reveal how successful the ‘double trouble' game will be for Bigg Boss 9.
