Actor Salman Khan is back again with a new season of Bigg Boss. Ahead of its premiere date, the makers held a press conference where they revealed the first contestant of Bigg Boss 16 and he is Tazakistan performer Abdu Rozik. Amidst all the excitement, Salman Khan clears the air on his fees and the reports suggesting that he has been paid Rs 1000 crore for hosting Bigg Boss 16.

Salman gave a witty answer when asked about his charges for hosting the reality show, “All those reports about my fees are untrue. If I ever get paid Rs 1000 crore I would never work in my life. But there will be a day when I’ll be paid this amount. If I get paid this amount, I have so many other expenses like lawyers that I actually need them. My lawyers are no less than Salman Khan. My earning is not even one fourth of it. These reports are read by income tax and ED department.

Speaking about his experience of hosting the show, the actor added, “It’s been 12 years now, it’s been a long time. I am used to it. I like the game, there is a lot to learn. You get to meet so many people. You protect the ones who are being bullied and bully the one who bullies. In those four months, we develop a bond.
