After staying at home for several months, Bollywood stars have finally started going out and shoot their upcoming projects. Salman Khan, who stayed at his farmhouse in Panvel throughout the lockdown, has also resumed work.

The superstar has started shooting for the fourteenth season of his highly popular reality show Bigg Boss. Today, at a live press conference, Khan gave audiences a brief tour of the new glass-walled house of Bigg Boss 14.

The Dabangg (2010) actor also spoke in detail about the apprehensions of working during the ongoing pandemic. “It is scary to be shooting nowadays. I get scared when I see someone coughing or sneezing around me. These are such trying times. I am not worried about myself but those that are around me. I worry that I should not be the reason they contract Coronavirus. I have not taken as many leaves in the past 30 years that I took in the last 6 months. I used to take 10 leaves a year previously and now I had no work for the past 6 months,” said Khan during a question-answer session with Sidharth Shukla.

Salman Khan, who has been hosting the controversial reality show for several years now, introduced Jaan Kumar Sanu as the first contestant of Bigg Boss 14. Jaan is the son of renowned playback singer Kumar Sanu.

Bigg Boss 14 will be Khan’s eleventh season as the host of the show. Other than Salman Khan, such Bollywood stars as Amitabh Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, and Arshad Warsi have also hosted the show in the past.

Last year, the makers shifted the sets of Bigg Boss from Lonavla to Goregaon Film City in Mumbai. The new Bigg Boss house will have a host of facilities that we have not seen on the show before, including an in-house mall, a theatre, a spa, and a restaurant.

Bigg Boss 14 is set to hit the airwaves on Colors TV starting from 3rd October.
