Bigg Boss 11: The channel can’t get the TRPs without me, says Salman Khan

For past three or four years, we have heard Salman Khan crib about hosting Bigg Boss and announcements that he won’t return for the next season. Makers of the show even tried airing the show without him (Farah Khan’s Halla Bol, remember?) but the channel simply can’t do Bigg Boss without the Bollywood star. And now, Salman has admitted the same: He has said the channel cannot get TRPs without him and hence, keeps bringing him back.

The eleventh season of India’s one of the most controversial shows, Bigg Boss, was launched Tuesday evening at a grand event in Andheri, Mumbai. Cringe pop sensation Dhinchak Pooja, TV actors Nia Sharma and Sana Saeed are among the top names being speculated as contestants for this year’s show. The show will start airing from Sunday, October 1.
