Mumbai: Usually a great attraction for the show, superstar Salman Khan has been getting both pats on the back and brickbats on the microblogging site Twitter for being partial towards ‘Bigg Boss-Saath 7’ contestant and actress Tanishaa Mukerji.

Salman gave an earful to contestant Kushal Tandon, a TV actor, on his bad behaviour towards the actress and many appreciated his stand. But others felt that the popular host is biased when it comes to Tanishaa and allege that he defends her due to the fact that she is actress Kajol`s sister.

"A clear cheat by Salman Khan today (Saturday) to support Tanisha ... why because she is from Mukerji family or she is a relative of Ajay Devgn," said a Twitter user Shweta.

While others think that Armaan Kohli and Tanisha`s Bollywood background is what is making the Salman choose them over the others.

"Salman Khan is so partial towards Tanishaa Mukherjee and Armaan Kohli. Bollywood is backing them and so is Salman Khan (sic)," Pratibha tweeted.

Salman was visibly upset when he featured on the show Saturday because of the fight between Tanishaa and Kushal and even said this would be his last season as host.

Many twitterati supported his stand.
