While speculations were doing rounds that Shah Rukh Khan would be the host of the controversial TV show Bigg Boss 8 and hear that Akshay Kumar has been finalized as the host. After Salman Khan refused to host season 8, the channel was trying hard to rope in a big name.
The makers of the show had contacted Ranbir Kapoor as well, but the only actor who had dates to spare for Bigg Boss was Akki. Akshay Kumar had seemed on the show in the earlier seasons as a guest. But now it looks he will be taking over the reins of the show from Salman Khan.
Akshay Kumar is said to be changing his shooting plans to accommodate the shoots for Bigg Boss.
