For the past 9 years, Dabangg Salman Khan has been hosting the superhit reality show Bigg Boss and it’s now a ritual for the superstar to host the show as nobody will like any other to take his place. And, we agree!

Once again, Salman Khan is coming with Bigg Boss season 12 and has already announced in the grand press launch of Bigg Boss 12 in Goa. His first couple contestant who is none other than laughter queen Bharti Singh with hubby Harsh Limbachiyaa.

In an interview with DNA, he opened up on what draws him to become the host of Bigg Boss every time. He said, “I find it interesting to watch people’s behaviour in the house, and when I see something going wrong, I get involved in it, unlike the other hosts who play it right. Earlier in my life, a lot of things have gone wrong, takleef toh hoti hai. Not only for the person, but even the parents go through a lot of trouble and pain. That’s the reason, when things go wrong in the Bigg Boss house, I tell them to not get into that space. But, honestly, this is where our country is going.”

He added that he gets involved when the contestants go overboard and do something which is against the Indian culture. “If they do something that is not in our culture or go overboard then I step in for their sake. If those under the cameras inside the house are okay with behaving like that (badly) and people are watching them making it one of the highest-rated shows, obviously everyone is enjoying it.”

When asked about why the show was preponed and was it anywhere linked to his shooting schedule, he said, “It has nothing to do with my film schedules or dates. The channel wanted the show to get over before December so that the contestants can be free to celebrate the New Year.”

He also revealed Katrina’s wish to host the show with Salman and if she is joining him. He said, “No. But when Katrina (Kaif) got to know that the show will have jodis, she said she wanted to host with me! But she said that in jest.”
