Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan is back on TV with Bigg Boss 11. This is the eighth consecutive time he is hosting the show. His association with the show as a host have benefited in terms of publicity and TRP. The ‘Tubelight’ actor says that those who misbehave on the controversial reality show have rarely got work afterwards. There have been times when Salman lost his cool on the show, but he believes there is a certain responsibility on the celebrities to maintain their dignity inside the house.
“When you become a celebrity, you have a responsibility. So you don’t want to go down that way. If you react to a common man (in a bad way) being a celebrity, people will say ‘Look at him, this is not good. If a common man does the same to a celebrity, people don’t enjoy that either. If it is all fun and games, then good. But you need to take care of your image as well.” Salman Khan told PTI.
The 51-year-old actor says he is aware that some people on the show come to revive their career but only those who show class inside the house go a long way. “Most of the people who have not been very well behaved in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house have got no work at all. But people who have shown maturity, dignity, class, poise and some substance, they have always got work,” he added.
Last year, Salman threw out Swami Om from the house, a contestant who broke several rules, and the actor says only in times of crisis he gets involved otherwise he does not interfere when it comes to selecting candidates.
“In the last season, I asked one (contestant) to leave the house and the team supported me on that decision. But I don’t take part in the phase of choosing contestants. If some characters go way off in the house, then that decision is mutual. It’s not good for the show.” He said.
Due to the crass behaviour of the inmates and the voyeuristic format, Salman says the team is aware there are people who still do not like the show.
