While Salman Khan is the most popular show on television, the question remains if he is biased or not. Many people claim that Salman Khan has been partial to Tanisha and Armaan while criticizing Kushal and Gauhar. He had earlier criticized Kushal for disrespecting Tanisha. But this move backfired because it is human-nature for people to support the underdog. Many claimed that Salman was clearly favoring Tanisha because they belong to the ‘filmi clan’ and Ajay Devgn is Sallu’s close friend. Not to take things lying down, Salman laid it bare on the show, clarifying his stand saying that he had taken the stand only because a woman’s dignity was being maligned and he was not partial to Tanisha. Salman claimed on the show that in fact, he was close to Kushal because they were from the same school.
Viewers did not take liking to Salman Khan telling Kushal to behave or things would turn bad for him. His words turned prophetic when Kushal went to hit Andy, which resulted in the former being thrown out of the show. Salman Khan criticized Gauhar Khan for talking out of turn and making contradictory statement. He accused Gauhar Khan for not taking sticking to her standing of going out of the show.
It is not that Salman was totally biased to Tanisha or Armaan, he had even told them to behave properly because there were 82 cameras watching their every move. Needless to say Tanisha and Armaan still continued their affair. Salman had even chided Tanisha to maintain her self-respect and not to be servile to Armaan. He had even told the latter to exercise some anger management. But many viewers feel that Salman had been somewhat soft on Tanisha and Armaan.
Post Kushal’s eviction, Salman made it clear to the house that he does not support anyone who indulges in violent behavior in the house. After Kushal came back on Bigg Boss house, Salman asked him why we he was planning stories about the Dabangg star apologizing to him. He even said that he did not approve Kushal of spreading lies in the Bigg Boss house. Kushal however maintained that he had not spoken a word against Salman. Once he said that Salman said “Okay, I believe you.”
In a way, it is good that Salman got it clarified on the show itself, rather than make people listen to media-created assumptions. We need to credit the host because it is not an easy show to host. For the last four seasons, including this one, he has done a brilliant job with the hosting. Bigg Boss owes its popularity to Salman Khan, no other star can match up to him in sheer persona and spontaneity. Salman Khan has maintained that it is no joke to host Bigg Boss, where temperaments, moods and sides change every minute. And no matter, which person he will take a stand for, the fan-base of the other contestants will be offended. Do you think Salman Khan has been a biased host on Bigg Boss?
