The sixth edition of Big Boss owes much of its popularity to two promises made by host Salman Khan. One, that the show will cater to a family audience. Two, that an aam aadmi will be allowed to join the celebs in the show. The latter promise created a huge buzz around the show with lakhs of people showing interest in the selection process. The selection rules were also framed to give the ordinary guy on the street a fair chance to enter the Big Boss home.
However, news that “Big Boss ka aam aadmi” Kashif Qureshi not just knows Salman Khan but has also worked with him in “Wanted” has stoked a huge controversy.
Mid-Day reports that Kashif is the personal trainer of a Hyderabadi businessman reputed to be very close to Salman Khan. The businessman named Hamed Saberi confirmed that Kashif had helped choreographed a few stunt sequences in Salman's “Wanted”.
This disclosure may come as an embarrassment for host Salman who has been criticized in the past for using Big Boss to introduce friends like Mahek and Niketan Madhok into the industry. Being involved in the show’s production, Salman may find it difficult to shrug off accusations of ghost scripting the show.
At the same time, celebrities meet thousands of fans and cannot be expected to remember them all. Kashif may know Salman but did Salman know and remember Kashif? That is the moot question for all Big Boss fans.
