Why did Arshad Warsi call Salman Khan downmarket and tacky?


Salman Khan and Bigg Boss fit so perfectly together, that it is impossible to imagine anyone else but him as the host. However, before Sallu took the reins, actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Arshad Warsi and Shilpa Shetty had also given it a shot.

Salman has been hosting Bigg Boss for six years.

Arshad, perhaps deserves a little credit for the show going on from scratch to running for 11 seasons as he was the first celebrity to host the adaptation of Big Brother.

Arshad was recently conspicuous by his absence when the team of his Diwali release Golmaal Again visited the sets of the show for promotions.

While one of his jokes during a promotional event on Salman was reported as a possible reason for his absence, it seems his problems with the show were most likely the cause, about which he opened up in a recent interview. "The (Bigg Boss) show is down market," Arshad said. "People on the show, I hear, are tacky." he added.

The recent example of Haseena Parkar’s alleged son-in-law Zubair Khan over his rude behavior or subsequent eviction was just one of the numerous examples of negativity associated with the show.

Arshad said, "People enjoy watching crass, and the channel is merely serving it. The content showcased on Indian television is regressive. The day people change, their taste (in content), the narrative of the shows will also change. If the world wants to see sensible people in the house, the channel will oblige. The audience wants to see dramatic people, those who fight, hit and abuse."

While Arshad’s joke at Salman reportedly didn’t do well with him, it would be interesting to know what he thinks of a more direct yet indirect comment at him this time.
