I'm always in my true colours on 'BB' - even when I lose my temper: Salman Khan

On Tuesday afternoon, locals and die hard-fans went berserk with ecstasy as the sultan of swag, sinewy Salman Khan stood atop the front-deck of  a classy cruiser boat, literally making waves as he arrived on the shores of this exotic Goan Villa Marina to face the media for his upcoming 'Bigg Boss 12' reality show. Also making his presence felt was the innovative showman, Viacom18 COO Raj Nayak in a colorful outfit topped by a Texas cowboy-hat. The immensely popular top- ranking non-fiction Colors flagship show is all set to premiere on Sunday September 16, 2018, at 9.00 pm. Subsequent episodes will be telecast from  Monday-Friday at 10.30 pm and Saturday–Sunday at 9.00 pm on Colors. ADC connected with the charismatic, compassionate ‘star-maker’ Salman, for a  rapid-fire candid ‘Khan-versation’. Excerpts:

What is the unusual khaas baat in the 'BB-12' house?
This time the tantalising theme is unusual-odd pairing. We call it the 'vichitra jodis' which is expected to be very amusing. The vast array of odd couples that the creative team has shortlisted will surely keep the home-viewers engrossed to the show. It'll be fun to see the jodis try to get even with each other because they are at odds created by the housemates. The 24X7 prying cameras are always zooming to capture the reality face-offs.

Who are the likely names to be under the 'BB' house-arrest?
The finalised names will be revealed very soon. At the moment, the roly-poly determined-to-win stand-up comedienne Bharti Singh and her writer husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa are already on board. Jitne bhi selected 'vichitra jodi' hai woh 'BB 12' ghar mein aajayenge. Like 'naagin-sapera', there will be same gender wale but odd buddies, 'saas-bahu', siblings, gossip-loving office colleagues.

Kitne pratishatt Bhartiya janata ka maan-na hai, that you are synonymous with the 'Bigg Boss' show?
(with a blushing impish smile) Yes I am aware that my legion of loyal fans are addicted to this show both to watch my presence, my crisp comments and frank feedback, even as they also enjoy the dramatic love-hate rishtey among the 'BB' house inmates during the weekdays. Honestly, I am grateful dil-sey to all my fans for their unconditional love all thru.

Isn't it true that you weren't the original choice as the 'Bigg Boss' host?
Sahi baat hai. Originally in the initial phase, they had approached Shah Rukh Khan for the 'BB' hosting. But since SRK was pre-occupied with some other overseas location film shoot and was recovering from a shoulder-injury, he was unable to take up the 'BB' hosting assignment. And I stepped in. The rest as they say is heartening history. 'Show show pe likkha hai, host karnewala ka naam'! Vaisey, Shah Rukh-bhai and I have been sharing a warm professional and personal rapport and we feature in each other's movie projects. (Smiles).

There are 'wild card' whispers that your buddy actress Katrina Kaif is co-hosting with you...
It was just a casual conversation in masti-mazaak and she was also wanting to be paid the same fees that I am getting. No it's not true.

Whenever you lose your temper on 'BB', is it fake or real?
Being a reality show I am always in my 'true colours'. Quite often I tend to lose my cool on the show when the housemates cross their decency limits. But these people have become really smart. They know they will stay in the show longer if I lambaste them. Generally speaking, the controversial contestants who crossed their limits may not find work easily. Whereas those who have transformed their personalities and conquered their weaknesses are doing very well for themselves.
