Bigg Boss confirmed that he will play the game, though he won't appear in front of the camera. When told he looks handsome, Salman said, "Thank you Bigg Boss, But I'd have looked double handsome if you could look at it with two eyes (joking about the icon of the show, one eye)." Salman added that Bigg Boss will play mind games this year and his brains will be apparent in this season.

Bigg Boss assured Salman he will pull up contestants this time, and everyone must beware that the show is completely unpredictable. He also told Salman that he may not be able to chill at all, adding that the actor has been synonymous with the game for the past 12 years.

The actor thanked Bigg Boss and added in a whispering tone, "Those 1,000 crore, I was rumoured to be getting this year, I was about to return those. I was about to return the money I never got, so Colors will be in complete profit."

Bigg Boss also informed Salman as well as the audience that the weekend special episodes have now been shifted. Usually, Salman appeared on episodes aired on Saturdays and Sundays. This season will see Salman appearing on the show on Friday and Saturday.
