Entertainment Television (SET) is in advanced talks with Salman Khan, and while
the superstar has no habit of making too many announcements from his social
media accounts, SpotboyE.com has it that if all goes well, 10 Ka Dum will soon
be back with Salman in the saddle.
Naturally, this move by Sony has ruffled feathers in Colors which has had Salman as its face and the host on their flagship show Bigg Boss for the last seven seasons from Season 4 onward. Although Sanjay Dutt was the main host of season 5, Salman Khan also hosted a few eviction episodes with him including the opening & finale episodes.

"Kapil's decline in popularity after his fracas with Sunil Grover on the flight from Australia (onMarch 16) is definitely one reason why Sony wants to do away with The Kapil Sharma Show for sometime at least," adds the source.
SET has dipped to No.5 and if we are not wrong, the channel's officials have been told to leave no stone unturned to ensure that they get their No. 3 slot back.
Think of it, Kapil's contract expires on May 29 (inclusive of the one-month extension that Sony has granted him) and it won't be too long before we know what Sony decides about its renewal.
