Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan says he often shares his own experiences with the contestants of reality show ‘Bigg Boss’, which he hosts.
“There is not even one per cent of acting in ‘Bigg Boss’ that I do. I am being Salman Khan, son of Salim Khan and brother of Sohail, Arbaaz, Arpita and Alvira, I put my experiences or of my family or friends to them (contestants),” Salman told reporters here at the press conference of the ninth season of the upcoming show.
Salman, 49, said that his mother and Karan Johar’s mother Hiroo Johar do watch the show and give him feedback.
“They watch the show and feel what the contestants are doing. It is not good to watch it. I feel one should be in limit and shouldn’t cross the line,” he said.
“I do watch episodes of the show and make notes of it. I share the experiences with them (contestants). When Mr Amitabh Bachchan was the host, he did not react (to fights). I react… I get a lot of criticism for it,” he added.
There have been reports that Salman would not be hosting the ninth season of ‘Bigg Boss’, but he is back as a host of the controversial show.
“After three months I get exhausted but then I have a long association with the team. There are educated people …. Celebrities on the show either they do things in dramatic or subtle way,” he said.
The theme of the show this season is ‘Double Trouble’. Talking about this, the ‘Dabangg’ star said, “I did not agree to it. They said it is the concept of the show and I found it funny. They (team) wanted to go with it.”
There is a buzz that couples might be part of the show. To which Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors Channel said, “You will get to see all kind of characters in the film.”
Interestingly, the show is going on air from October 11, the birthday of megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
“It’s a coincidence… But we will take credit for it. It is our way of saying Happy Birthday,” Salman said.
