It was earlier reported that The Kapil Sharma Show might go off air owing to decreasing TRPs and Sunil Grover walking out of the show. But the channel may have little to worry about as the prime time slot is likely to be taken over by Salman Khan's Dus Ka Dum.

DNA reports that Sony Entertainment Television is in talks with Khan and they will finalise the details of the show in the next couple of days.  The Times of India reports that if all goes well, the show may start airing in July in place of The Kapil Sharma Show with which the channel is considering not to renew its contract.

Khan has become a popular television show after hosting seven seasons of the reality show Bigg Boss. However, he made his TV debut with Dus Ka Dum, a celebrity quiz show with an interesting format. Khan hosted two seasons of the show back in 2008 and 2009. With the third season, he will return to the show after eight long years.

Khan has just returned from his Da-Bang world tour in which he performed in a few cities around the globe with Sonakshi Sinha, Daisy Shah, Badshah, Akshay Kumar, Bipasha Basu, Prabhu Deva and Manish Paul.

He will soon start promoting his next film, Kabir Khan's period drama Tubelight in which he stars alongside Chinese actor Zhu Zhu, Sohail Khan, the late Om Puri and a cameo by Shah Rukh Khan. The movie, co-produced by Salman Khan Films and Kabir Khan, is slated to release this Eid on 26 June.

The only hindrance in Khan hosting the show is that he has to resume his shooting of Ali Abbas Zafar's action thriller Tiger Zinda Hai and wrap it up at the earliest since the film is slated to release this Christmas.
