Bollywood superstar Salman Khan launched the latest season of Bigg Boss Tuesday evening. One of the most controversial reality shows of India, Bigg Boss will start airing its eleventh season from Sunday. Asked if he will indeed be paid Rs 11 crore per episode, Salman said, “Please make Raj (Nayak, Endemol COO) pay me that amount.”

While Salman made it sound like just a rumour, Raj’s response suggested that the number may not be too far from the actual figure. “Salman Khan doesn’t come cheap, you know,” he said.

Asked about a Bigg Boss rule that he wants to change, Salman said, “I think the first week of elimination is not right because it takes a little time to settle down and mingle with people. So, whoever gets eliminated on the first week, I think it is unfair.”

“I want everyone to behave properly. I know it is not easy considering the situation where all the participants are coming from different background and mingling the first time; there are friendship, politics, people deal with the tricky situation. However, they should behave,” Salman said.

“I think many people come to the show for revamping their career and if they are fighting and misbehaving with people, industry professionals will not prefer to work with them,” he added.

The launch took place at a housing complex in suburban Mumbai, where Salman entered the stage with a gala performance of his hit songs. Colors COO Raj Nayak was also present there along with Deepak Dhar of Endemol.

The popular reality show Bigg Boss 11 stars airing from October 1, on Colors TV.
