Salman Khan has never been a stickler for rules. And the actor-host recently flaunted that attitude on the sets of Bigg Boss 7.
For some time now, the show’s contestants have been raising objections over the limited quantity of food available to them. In a few episodes, some even complained of weakness, as they hadn’t eaten well.
Two weeks ago, post Hazel Keech’s eviction, she also went on record in a report, saying, "There wasn’t enough food and water for everyone in the house."
Then last week, when this news reached Salman’s ears while he was on the set in Lonavala, he decided to do something about it.
Although the format of the show doesn’t give contestants access to extra food (unless they earn it or manage to save some by rationing it), the actor still went ahead and treated them to some snacks.
"The first time, Salman got them burgers," says an insider, adding, "But last Saturday, he ordered a variety of things for breakfast; including samosas, rasgullas and dosas."
The food was delivered to them with a note saying that the meal was sent to them by Salman. The footage of them eating the food was not aired in any episodes probably because feeding the contestants is against the rules. The actor even promised to continue to bring them more food in the coming weeks.
When contacted, the channel’s spokesperson didn’t comment on the matter.
Last season, Salman had sent food to the house just once. The channel, however, has given participants special dishes on events like Diwali or their birthdays (and footage of these meals was aired on TV).
