“I am extremely delighted that I am making my foray into television through a concept like Bigg Boss - a show that holds a nation's attention for more than three months. I loved watching Salman host the last season. I thought he was mind-blowing with his sense-of-humor and inimitable style," Dutt told PTI.
Salman also said that it was a great move to rope in Sanjay to the show. “I greatly enjoyed working on Bigg Boss last season and received a lot of positive response from fans and well-wishers alike. It is an exciting format that makes for compelling viewing and I am glad to be back for another season. I think it is a great move to also sign-up Sanjay Dutt. It can only mean one thing for the viewers - more excitement and a differentiated appeal for this season," Salman said.
It was reported in the past that Sanjay Dutt was offered to host the show but turned down the offer. Salman's experience at the last episode seems to have inspired him to take up the show this time around.
