I don’t care for TRPs or 100 crore game: Salman Khan

It's a difficult situation for me: Salman Khan

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan opens up about the difficulty of hosting a show like 'Bigg Boss', the onus of raking in TRPs and hitting the 100 crore club with his back-to-back blockbusters in this candid interview.

The seventh season of "Bigg Boss" is ready to hit the tube Sep 15 and Salman Khan is all set to take up the host's seat for the fourth consecutive year. But he confesses that hosting is an uphill task, as he has to do things that he doesn't enjoy doing.

"Bigg Boss - 7" will go on air on Colors and will see as many as 14 inmates, including celebrities, trying to survive and win the title.

"As a host at times things bother me on the sets. And I am forced to take a stand, and I hate it. I don't like to take a stand," Salman told IANS.

"If I say something to someone, that guy has the right to give it back. It's a difficult situation in which I am. It's a difficult position to be in. So far we have been able to handle it," said the 47-year-old.

Salman, who entered the small screen as the host of "Dus Ka Dum", joined "Bigg Boss" in its fourth season and has been hosting it since. The show fetches good TRPs, thanks to the heightened drama, mud-slinging, fights and emotions that take place in the "Bigg Boss" house.

But the Dabangg star is not buoyed by the ratings, as his motto is to do a good work.

Salman told IANS: "I only have to do my work. If the show is good, people will watch, or else even I will not see it. I don't understand this TRP game at all, so it doesn't bother me at all."

Box office number games are not his cup of tea either.

"Even with box office they say Rs.100 crore, Rs.200 crore, but I don't understand this Rs.100 crore game at all. It doesn't matter to me. If the film is good, it will do well," said the actor whose films Ek Tha Tiger, Bodyguard and Dabangg 2 had joined the Rs.100 crore club.

He confessed as the host at times he lost his cool.

"Last time I lost my cool. I lost it the year before as well. I think they were disrespectful to Sanju (Sanjay Dutt who co-hosted season five with him). I remember that stuck in my head for two weeks and I couldn't handle that."

"As a person when I watch the show, I detach myself. As a host I am only there on Friday and Saturday. You go to the house as a common man. You are actually sharing your life with so many people. You behave like you are with your family, but that is your real personality."

Every year "Bigg Boss" gets into controversies when the inmates indulge in acrimonious fights, use bad language etc.

When asked if it would be a clean show this time, Salman said: "It depends on who is going in. I don't know who is going in. It's a wow types or awe types."

"I am sure they are going to have problems. But if they get along fine, tasks will be on a level that they will be forced to be broken."

At the same time, Salman praises inmates.

He said: "They (inmates) are doing a big favour by letting you in their house, lives, and personal space. It is a very big thing."

"So much you can learn from this. It's easy to say he or she was wrong, but when we are there in that situation, you think I would have reacted like this," he added.

Asked if he would ever like to be in the "Bigg Boss" house, Salman said jokingly: "It's difficult. I don't think I want to. Not for any other reason, but I will be too entertaining inside and TRPs would hit the roof and other people won't be able to hit that."
