Salman Khan added much fun to the "Bigg Boss 9" launch on Monday. While the superstar welcomed Shah Rukh Khan, Salman made some witty remarks on Aamir Khan and Farah Khan.
It was reported that Shah Rukh Khan had plans to appear in "Bigg Boss 9" for the promotion of "Dilwale" and Salman Khan welcomed him for the same but with a touch of humour.
"I would love to have him on the show and he knows I mean it. If he has the time and wants to come on to the show, he is more than welcome," The Indian Express quoted the "Bigg Boss 9" host as saying.
Having said this, Salman included a little humour to his words, adding: "I would put it this way. Not that I would want him to come on the show and all that because it is carried away in a different thing and there is pressure put on him and all that. So, if he is coming he can come, promote and have fun, chit chat with contestants and give them his life's experience. He has got a lot of experiences in life."
Salman then had a dig at Aamir Khan, who happens to be the brand ambassador of e-commerce company Snapdeal, which is the title sponsor of "Bigg Boss 9".
When a representative of Snapdeal came forward to say a few words during the launch of "Bigg Boss 9", the "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor interrupted him by saying: "Bolo bolo Aamir ke liye kuch bolo. He is the brand ambassador yaar (Say something for Aamir. He is the brand ambassador)," according to Pinkvilla.
Salman was replaced by Farah Khan as the host of "Bigg Boss" last season when the actor had to leave the show for the shooting of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan". Interestingly, the show's TRP hiked up a little after Farah Khan started hosting the show.
So Salman did not even spare Colors TV CEO, Raj Nayak, and the erstwhile host of the show, Farah Khan. "Farah increased the rating. And despite her doing better, you are calling me to host the show. Why Raj?"
While the final list of contestants is yet to be revealed, "Bigg Boss 9" is based on the theme 'double trouble' and is slated to be aired on Colors TV from 11 October.
