Salman Khan may not physically be there for every episode. And Sanjay Dutt may have taken over from him as the host this season, but Salman still seems to be bossing around at the Bigg Boss house. Mumbai Mirror learnt that the dabangg man has decided not to let Hrithik Roshan be the special guest for the grand finale of the reality television series.
Hrithik was supposed to promote his upcoming release Agneepath on the grand finale of the TV show. Sanjay Dutt, the main villain of the film, being a part of the show should have helped the marketing initiative. However, Salman has put his foot down. Khan has now asked Imran Khan to promote Karan Johar’s next production Ek Main Aur Ek Tu on the grand finale.
Sources from the industry believe that Salman’s decision to invite Imran Khan instead of Hrithik on the show stems from his off-screen equation with the respective stars. While Salman is rather fond of Imran, and has been rather vocal with his praises for the younger actor, the same cannot be said about his equation with Hrithik.
It can be recalled, that Hrithik’s comments on Salman’s outburst about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish did not go down too well with the latter. So, when he was told that the team of Agneepath, which included Hrithik, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt would grace the grand finale of Bigg Boss, Salman refused to entertain them. A source close to the production unit for the show revealed that Salman apparently, made it clear that he is the heart and soul of the show and Sanjay Dutt was only holding up the show in his absence.
However, though Hrithik won’t be a part of the visiting entourage, producer Karan Johar remains a constant. Considering both Hrithik’s and Imran’s films are from KJo’s stable, the filmmaker will be very much a part of the finale. When contacted, Karan even confirmed that he would be gracing the show with Imran in tow.
