Salman Khan is all geared up to host "Bigg Boss 9" and the superstar's presence is considered to be the prime attraction of the show.

Although Salman has proved his worth as a host in the previous five seasons of "Bigg Boss", the "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor's hosting ability is often compared to that of Amitabh Bachchan, who hosted the third season of the show, apart from "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (KBC).

At the recently held press conference of "Bigg Boss 9", Salman himself made a comparison between his hosting "Bigg Boss" and Amitabh Bachchan doing the same.

Salman asserted that unlike Big B, he gets too involved with the show and the contestants, which eventually affects him and keeps him attached to the show.

"Mr. Amitabh Bachchan did not react to what happened in the house, but I get involved with these people and most of them remain in touch with me after the show as well. I get a lot of criticism for getting into the things because it is not my space," India Today quoted the actor as saying.

"After you work for three months, you get exhausted and everything keeps on coming in your head, but then there is a long association with the show, huge connect with contestants inside as well as the whole team and then you start missing the whole thing after a certain while," he added.

"Bigg Boss 9" has a special theme called "double trouble" and it is being presumed that this season will have much more twists and drama than the earlier seasons of the show.
