In fact, Salman had last month said: "There is a possibility (that I may host the upcoming season of 'Bigg Boss') and there is no possibility also."

When he was asked as to who will be a good host for the show, if not him, he had said: "If not me, then I think Shah Rukh Khan will be a great host for this season of 'Bigg Boss'."
