Mumbai: Salman Khan is known for keeping his word but ‘Bigg Boss’ contestants and makers think otherwise. The actor had reportedly promised a special episode to the contestants but didn’t show up as the crew kept waiting for him endlessly.
As per reports, the contestants had requested Salman to air a special episode to give competition to the first episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ that aired on Monday. But even though Salman agreed, he didn’t turn up for the shoot.
Confirming the news a source said, “The intention was to lock horns with Kaun Banega Crorepati 4. The creative team of ‘Bigg Boss’ felt that this way they could grab more eyeballs and thereby affect the TRPs of Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati’s opening episode.”
And that’s not all, the Bigg Boss team members explained to Sallu as to how important it was for them to beat the opening episode of Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 4. And even though Salman gave his nod, he shocked everyone when he failed to turn up for the shoot.
“The Bigg Boss team, which was waiting in the early hours of Sunday, was informed only around noon that Salman would not make it to Lonavla that day. Left with no other alternative, the unit packed up. Lekin kar kya sakte the? Salman bhai ne ek baar bol diya toh bol diya," added the source.
As per sources, Salman excused himself by saying that he was indisposed. “He was actually celebrating the success of the Being Human show till the wee hours of Sunday morning. Salman was in very high spirits after the Being Human show”, the source added.
