Will Ajay Devgn do a better job than Salman Khan in Bigg Boss?
With speculation rife that Salman Khan may not be available to host the next season of Bigg Boss, Ajay Devgn may be a likely successor. Devgn is non-committal on the issue as he says that Khan does the job "so well". Weigh in with your vote.tv Updated: Feb 10, 2014 18:34 IST
Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn says he is unsure that, given a chance, he will be able to host reality show Bigg Boss as skillfully as his fellow actor Salman Khan did.
Rumours are rife that Salman, who successfully hosted four consecutive seasons of the reality show, may not be available for the eighth season of Bigg Boss.
When asked whether he would accept if given the opportunity to host the show, Ajay said: "I really don't know. I cannot comment on that - may be I will or may be not. I am not sure."
"Salman does it so well... he is watchable. I don't know if I can pull it off like Salman. I have not seen all the episodes, but a little bit here and there," Ajay said.
Salman and Ajay are contemporaries as well as friends. They have worked together in films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and London Dreams.
"I don't believe that rivals cannot be friends. All of us are friends, most of us at least. Salman, Sanjay Dutt, and me are very close. Earlier, we used to meet on each other's sets. Now it's become more professional, but we have a great rapport. Whenever we need each other, we stand for each other," he added.
Ajay Devgn's sister-in-law and Kajol's wife Tanissha was one of the contestants in Bigg Boss's latest season. In fact, Salman was accused of being partial to Tanisha which had led to quite a controversy on social networking sites.
Irritated by it all, Salman had said he was not interested in hosting the show any longer. Gauhar Khan went on to win the season and rumours had quietly died after that. Kajol and Ajay were said to be furious when Tanissha joined the show.
