Bigg Boss Marathi is all set to hit the television screens on April 15 and will see Bollywood actor Mahesh Manjrekar as its host. Indeed, the audience is quite ecstatic about the Marathi version of the show, given the tremendous popularity of the other versions especially Hindi which is hosted by superstar Salman Khan.
Khan has been hosting Bigg Boss for a couple of years now and has come up with a special advice for Mahesh who will be hosting the reality show for the first time.
Salman, who was happy to know about Bigg Boss Marathi, has asked Mahesh to develop an understanding with the contestants.
"When I signed the contract, I told Salman I am doing 'Bigg Boss' in Marathi. He was more than happy and is hopeful I will enjoy doing it. The only thing he told me is to be understanding with the contestants," Mahesh was quoted as saying.
Interestingly, Mahesh has even asked the Sultan actor to make an appearance on Bigg Boss Marathi to promote his upcoming movie Race 3.
"I told the team since 'Race 3' (which features Salman) is releasing in June, we should call him to promote the film. It will be a great thing for the show, it will get a boost," he said.
The show will have 15 celebrity contestants who will live under surveillance for 100 days.
"I feel honoured to be in the same shoes as Salman Khan, Mithun Chakraborty, Sudeep and Kamal Hasan (who have hosted different versions of the show).
"But I will do the show in my own way. We all have different styles so do I. There is no script and I just have to react to what they (contestants) are saying or to the given situation, it is the greatest workshop for any actor. I know it is going to be a big task," Mahesh said.
