If Bachchan can do it, Khan can, too. And it's official now: Salman Khan will host Bigg Boss next season. After a great season with the Big B as the host, the channel is hoping Sallu will keep audiences hooked in season four as well. Earlier, both Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar had been approached to host the show. But, sources said, things didn't work out in either case.
Interestingly, since Kaun Banega Crorepati will air on another channel in the same time slot, Bollywood's favourite bad boy will compete with Bachchan for TRPs. ''This is the standard procedure that channels follow,'' said Khan, shrugging off the comparison. ''I don't really care about TRPs. I just like connecting with my audience, which is why I'm doing more of television.''
Salman added, ''For me, television is a way of returning the love and affection that I have got from the audience for the past 22 years. Now they get to see me in the comfort of their homes and that too for free.''
Unlike Bachchan, who played the friend, philosopher and guide to inmates of the house, Khan will be his brutally honest and spontaneous best on the show. Of course, comparisons are bound to be made. Does that bother him? ''Why should it?'' asked Khan. ''He had his style and I have mine. Besides, Mr Bachchan is going to host another show in a different format. All these comparisons are nowhere in my mind.''
Interesting mix of contestants
All set to begin on Oct 3, reality TV’s most controversial show Bigg Boss promises to spark fireworks once again. The show that has a reputation of being full of sleaze and betrayal has once again drawn an interesting mix of contestants. And if reports are to be believed then the show’s season 4 has the most conflicting personalities ever seen in a reality show. What’s more is that some participants are hand picked by host Salman Khan.
