Mumbai: When countless people from the country voted to be part of Bigg Boss Season 6, little would they have known that ultimately, the one who entered the show as ‘the common man' would actually be someone who was already known to superstar host Salman Khan.
Yes! The rumours of the so-called ‘common man' Kashif Qureshi on Bigg Boss 6, being close to Salman Khan, came true when Kashif himself spilled the beans this week.
He released a picture on social media, with him and Salman together during the shooting of the film Wanted, which released way back in 2009. Kashif's status message with the pic reads, "Me n bhaijan the lion of bollywood, ‘wanted'' days..:D (sic)."
Interestingly, Wanted was the same film which had a role by another earlier Bigg Boss contestant Mahek Chahal, who Salman was alleged by various contestants like Siddharth Bhardwaj, Pooja Bedi, Pooja Misrra, Akashdeep Sky Saigal, Amar Upadhyay, Vida Samadzai and Shakti Kapoor, to be biased about, on Bigg Boss 5.
Apart from Kashif, rumours about Salman being close to another contestant Niketan Madhok too had surfaced during BB 6. Now after seeing this picture of the superstar with Kashif, one wonders how would all those people feel, who applied to join Bigg Boss 6 as 'common man'.
But when we asked Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar who has handled the publicity for maximum Bigg Boss contestants in the past, he only had good words to say about Salman and Kashif.
"Kashif has been a celebrated martial arts specialist in Hyderabad from a decade. As a superstar, Salman Khan might be interacting with so many people. Does that mean all those can't participate on Bigg Boss?" asked the publicist.
