At a special event for Bigg Boss 15, Salman Khan talked about his association with the show and claimed it is the ‘only relationship that has lasted this long’.
Cracking a joke at his own expense, Bigg Boss 15 host Salman Khan said that his longest relationship has been with the reality show Bigg Boss. After first being associated with Bigg Boss 4 in 2010, he has been the show’s host for more than a decade.
Bigg Boss 15 is set to premiere on October 2 and a special media event on Thursday evening saw Salman Khan share a special message.
In a video message shown to the media at the Pench National Park in Madhya Pradesh, the 55-year-old actor said, “My relationship with Bigg Boss, this is perhaps my only relationship that has lasted this long. Some relationships, what do I say. Let it be. (But) Bigg Boss has brought certain permanence in my life. Though sometimes for those four months, we don’t see eye to eye but when we are parting ways (after a season’s end), we are desperate to reunite.” Also Read-After Salman, Manoj Bajpayee slaps Kamaal R Khan with defamation case; KRK Says, ‘Dadu ji you can’t save your career by harassing me’
Talking about the show’s ‘jungle’ theme for this year, Salman said, “This season makes me remember the song – Jungle Hai Aadhi Raat Hai. Not Sultan wala Dangal. Not Dangal wala Dangal, but it will be a different Dangal. 250 cameras will be looking out for every movement in the jungle and will note even a leaf moving. Bigg Boss 15 can be five months long this time.” Also Read-Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s ‘Gadar 2’ shooting to begin in November? Here’s All You Need To Know
