Ajay may fill Salman’s shoes…

Rumour has it that Salman Khan, who has hosted four seasons of the popular reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ consecutively, has opted out of the next season of the show. Salman would not be seen in the eighth season of ‘Bigg Boss’.

Salman was accused of being partial to Tanisha Mukherjee who happens to be the sister-in-law of his very close friend Ajay Devgn. Apparently the gossip doing the rounds of him being partial to one contestant, has snubbed him completely and he has decided to stay away from all the hoopla that surrounds this reality show.

Now there’s surprising talk of none other than Ajay Devgn being roped in for the same! If rumour is to be believed, it would be the first time that Ajay Devgn would host a reality show.

Ajay, on being probed, said, “I really don’t know. I cannot comment on that. Maybe I will or maybe not. I am not sure. Salman does it so well, he is watchable. I don’t know if I can pull it off like Salman. I have not seen all the episodes, but a little bit here and there.” Ajay and Salman have been contemporaries for a very long time and happen to be great friends as well, which is a rare combination in the industry.

“I don’t believe that rivals cannot be friends. All of us are friends, most of us at least. Salman, Sanjay Dutt, and I are very close. Earlier, we used to meet on each other’s sets. Now it’s become more professional, but we have a great rapport. Whenever we need each other, we stand for each other,” said Ajay.
