The channel has shelved the next season of the show, because neither Sallu nor Sanju Baba were inclined
Plans for another season of the game show Dus Ka Dum have been shelved.
According to channel sources Dus Ka Dum has fallen prey to Bigg Boss. Says a channel source, “After talks with Salman fell through, the channel had zeroed in on Sanjay Dutt as Salman's replacement.
But it was later decided that Salman would be more appropriate. In the meanwhile Salman committed himself to the next season of Bigg Boss.
They've now decided to shelve plans for the next season of Dus Ka Dum and focus instead on The X Factor, which will have Rishi Kapoor as one of the anchors.”
Ajit Thakur, business head and executive VP of the channel involved, confirms that Dus Ka Dum has been put on the back burner in favour of The X Factor. Says Thakur, “This year we're focusing entirely on the next season of Kaun Banega Crorepati and X Factor, which we're very excited about.
Yes we're in advanced talks with Rishi Kapoor to serve as one of the judges. Both Rishi and the channel are very excited about the association.”
