Salman Khan has been hosting the reality show Bigg Boss for the past 8 years. His name has become synonymous to the show, and let’s be honest some credit for the success of the show goes to Salman. He is undoubtedly one of the stars who has the largest fan following.

Salman started hosting the reality shoe from the 4th season onwards, and recently he got to know a secret. After Amitabh Bachchan completed season 3, the makers wanted to sign Shah Rukh Khan for season 4, not Salman Khan.

“I have recently come to know that the one who was originally supposed to be signed for Bigg Boss was Shah Rukh Khan. He was the first choice. But at that time, he was shooting in Prague and he had a shoulder injury. So, he couldn’t do it and that’s how I came on board. I thank him and Colors for giving me Bigg Boss,” the actor told reporters in Goa at the launch of Bigg Boss 12.

Speaking about his association with Bigg Boss, Salman Khan told media persons: “I don’t know how much I have helped in Bigg Boss’s success or how much it has contributed in my own brand value. All I know is that there is a great tuning and people like watching me on the show and I enjoy doing it,” reports PTI.

The show is set to premiere on 16th September on Colors.
