"I think — as a host — they (makers) should take a stand-up comedian. With someone like me [as an anchor], we can’t go to that comic level [a stand-up comedian can manage]," says Salman, adding, "A Krushna (Abhishek) or a Kapil (Sharma) can be a lot of fun. They can use their humour to host the show, something they are gifted with. They can be funny with gags, etc."

While he feels that he can’t be too funny on the show, he maintains that he will be honest about whatever he feels. "With me, there will be fun talks and all kinds of other emotions as well. I will say it the way I see it. Even If I don’t like something, I will say it, and if I like something, I will appreciate that as well," says the actor, who is of the opinion that since the format of the show is simple, other actors can also be roped in to host the show in the next season.

"A lot of people can do it since the format is not difficult. Sanju (Sanjay Dutt), for example, can be a natural choice. Also, Akki (Akshay Kumar) would also be a good host," he opines.
