Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has said that he doesn’t think he is good enough to host a show like Bigg Boss. SRK was said to be in talks for the recently concluded season of Bigg Boss, but it was his good-friend Salman Khan who continued as host.
In an interview to a local daily, Khan said “With due respect to all the other shows, I don’t think I am fit for anything other than the shows I have been associated with. As for Bigg Boss, no it’s not my cup of tea. In terms of how the contestants lead their lives and all, it’s a beautiful show. And I think Salman does it really well and Farah’s done it really well too. I see snippets of it. People in my house see it. I have never been intrigued to host it. But yes, watching it as an audience, I am open to seeing Bigg Boss. As a host, I don’t think I will be very good at it.”
SRK also praised Salman and Aamir for their stints on television “Salman, I believe is fabulously watchable as a host. Even Dus Ka Dum was very cool and now he’s doing Bigg Boss… People enjoy themselves on the small screen and that’s why Salman or Aamir do it. Aamir really loves the social service stuff that he does and is very pertinent of his ideas. He’s happy doing it. For me, I am a television star hoping to be a film star. So when I become a film star, I will try to be a TV star again. I am still struggling, but these guys are good at their job”
When asked about doing a fictional show like Fauji or Circus, he jokingly said “If they can afford me! But I doubt television can afford me”
