Mumbai: Salman Khan is all set to host the grand finale episode of Bigg Boss 11, a show he has been associated with since the fourth season. The hunk of a superstar will be joined by another industry heavyweight to make the evening a starry event. Akshay Kumar, a fear friend of Salman will share the stage to announce the name of this season’s winner.
The Khiladi superstar will be on the show to promote his film Padman which is slated to release on January 25.
Padman is inspired by Padma Shri awardee Arunachalam Muruganantham’s noble initiative to make machines that can produce affordable sanitary pads for women in the rural area. He has been instrumental in creating awareness about menstrual hygiene too. The film has been produced by Twinkle Khanna, Akshay’s wife.
Khanna, who is an interior-decorator/author, has turned a film producer with this venture. She had written about Muruganantham in a short story titled The Sanitary Man from A Scared Land in her second novel The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad.
Padman directed by R Balki co-straring Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor was initially slated to release on January 26. But just a few days back, Akshay preponed the film’s release by one day.
Akshay, who plays a superhero of a new kind, will announce the winner’s name tonight.

Akshay and Salman have worked with each other quite a few times. And we love their bromance.
The grand finale episode will see celebrities Hina Khan, Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta and commoner Punesh Sharma competing for the top spot. Who will win the race? Will Shilpa emerge victorious or will Vikas’ charm captivate the audience? Let’s wait and watch.
