Shahrukh Khan and Akshay Kumar were earlier approached by the channel to host the show, but probably things didn't work out in both the cases and finally it was Salman who bagged the offer. Before this it was Shahrukh who hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati after Amitabh Bachchan and now it is Salman who will be hosting Bigg Boss after Big B who was seen in season 3 of the show.
Interestingly Kaun Banega Crorepati and Bigg Boss 4 will be aired in two different channel at the same time on the same day. Definitely, it will a war for TRPs. When on one side it will be the manly voice of Amitabh Bachchan which will attract the viewers on the other side it will be Salman's out of the box style that will hook the audience.
When asked about the competition and comparison which will definitely crop up between the two, Salman says that both of them have different styles, and more over he is not on television to have a TRP war, rather his aim is to connect to his fan through the small screen in their living room.
While last season of Bigg Boss saw Amitabh Bachchan acting as a friend, philosopher and guide to the inmates of the house, Salman Khan will be seen in a more straight forward role. Salman was last seen hosting the Television Dus Ka Dum which turned out to be a great success on small screen. Now, it is Bigg Boss season which is expected to rock because of his unique style and friendly nature.
Well, though we are sure that Amitabh and Salman will do total justice to the show, it is the audience who will face the problem in deciding what to watch. We wish all the luck to them.
