Shekhar Suman, who is seen hosting ‘The Big Bulletin’ in controversial reality show Bigg Boss 16, spoke exclusively to ETimes TV about being a part of the reality series. He shared his happiness about getting to know different personalities on the show. Shekhar also talked about Salman Khan’s association with Bigg Boss and how he has become synonymous with the show. He revealed that Priyanka Chahar Choudhary, Shalin Bhanot, Gautam Vig and Archana Gautam are currently going strong in the show. He feels Priyanka and Gautam Singh Vig will be in the finals.
“I am enjoying myself a lot and I think it is quite visible on my face. I am having a lot of fun because I am getting a chance to study people, their emotions and their game. When the show came to me I was a little skeptical whether I should do it or not. But then I took this opportunity as a challenge to leave an impression on the audience and be able to share my perspective about the contestants and act as a bridge between the contestants and the viewers,” he said.
The seasoned actor-turned-host, who has been in the industry for three decades, is loving all the positive feedback coming his way. “I feel it is the best thing for any artist to get appreciated by the audience. Their positive comments boost our morale. We are in this profession for their love and support. It is very encouraging that people are loving this segment,” shared Shekhar Suman.
Shekhar, who is closely watching the contestants on the reality series, shared who he sees in Top 5. “All the contestants become promising with different situations. There’s something called the probable dark horse, who comes from behind and becomes the winner but from what I can see, I feel Priyanka Chahar Choudhary, Archana Gautam, Abdu Rozik, Gautam Vig and Shalin Bhanot are moving ahead in full form. Abdu has become everyone’s favourite and people are loving him. Shiv Thakare is also a very promising contestant and he’s a very smart contestant. He can be in the Top 5.”
The celebrated actor also revealed who all needs to pull up their socks to stay in the show, “According to me those who were weak are already out. I personally like Ankit Gupta as he’s a very serious, no-nonsense person. I think he is not made for a show like this. But now that he has taken it up, he will have to play like a contestant to move ahead in the game. Gori Nagori and MC Stan need to pull up their socks and take their stand,” he revealed.
