Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan defended his rival Shahrukh Khan on Bigg Boss 6 after Imam Siddique, a contestant on the show, claimed he was the one who made SRK a star.
Siddique, a casting director, got into an argument with host Salman after he nominated the house's captain Niketan. The actor told Siddique to nominate someone else as Niketan was the captain of the house but Siddique stood by his decision, saying he knew what the audience want. After Salman mocked him, Siddique replied, "I cast Preity Zinta and Shahrukh Khan for ad films that worked very well with the audiences." Losing his cool, Salman said, "Shahrukh is in the industry because of his hard work and the support of his fans. It is because he has pursued his career with determination that he is a big man and not because you cast him in an advertisement."
The 47-year-old Dabangg star also revealed that Siddique was desperate to be a part of the show and would text him everyday begging to be a part of Bigg Boss 6.
