Q: Back as a host on the small screen with "Bigg
Boss 4" after hosting two seasons of "Dus Ka Dum"
- has Salman Khan taken a fancy to TV or hosting reality shows?
A: You can say I have taken a fancy to TV or reality shows,
but for me, my fans are most important. When I appear on TV,
they don't have to go out, buy tickets and watch the show. They
can enjoy watching me on their television sets in the comfort
of their homes for free. My family enjoys "Bigg Boss";
they discuss it all the time. I asked mom before considering
it and she instantly said yes.
Q: So how different was it from "Dus Ka Dum"?
A: "Dus Ka Dum" was a game format, "Bigg Boss"
is completely different. Here you can be more upfront, it has
a lot to do with others' actions as well as emotions.
Q: How are you going to add more spice to "Bigg
Boss" considering the participants already promise the
same thanks to their controversial track records?
A: I am going to be myself, 100 percent unadulterated Salman.
I will call a spade a spade. I am a very straightforward person
and I will not take any hypocrisy and politics lightly. For
those housemates who play clean, they will always find their
best friend in me. Those who don't, be ready to expect the worst.
But I can promise that viewers will have the most amazing time.
They can expect as much fun outside the house as is expected
Q: Any favourite contestant who you can bet your money
A: 'Sab ek se badhkar ek hain boss'... this show is quite unpredictable,
so you never know who manages to survive and who gets to meet
me on Friday when the next eviction happens.
Q: You are sporting a completely cool look for the
show. Did you contribute any inputs for the same?
A: Thank you, but all credit goes to Ashley Rebello and my
sister Alvira (Agnihotri).
Q: What do you have to say about your controversies'-favourite-child
tag in Bollywood?
A. Controversies are fuelled and at times created by the media.
I don't react to it and no one around me does either. Since
I have come on Twitter, even my fans have stopped reacting to
it as they have direct access to me.
Q. Do you think hosting reality shows has made you
more comfortable both with the common man and the press?
A. I have always been comfortable with my fans. TV only helps
me to be more accessible to them and we all have fun in the
process. Regarding media, you guys discuss my life without even
knowing it and I find it very amusing.
Q. Do we also see a third season of "Dus Ka Dum"
some time in the future? What about the sequel to "Dabangg"?
A. I am currently working on "Ready". Then we have
two scripts for "Dabangg" and it could either be a
prequel or a sequel. Regarding television, I am on "Bigg
Boss" season four now and enjoying it a lot... will let
you know what next on TV when I decide something.
