Apart from a few knick-knacks about work, Salman shared how he burned father Salim Khan's salary Rs 750 when he was younger. But did he do on purpose or was it an accident? Find this out tonight only on Colors Marathi at 9 PM on Sunday, August 11, 2019.

Sharing his experience on hosting this show, Mahesh Manjrekar said in an interview with mid-day: "As a half-Parsi-half-Maharashtrian, I can connect with the show, because it's easier to understand their innuendos and references, related to Marathi culture. In the Hindi one, most of the innuendos get lost in translation. People like me were aimless when Bigg Boss wasn't on TV, and now that Season 2 is on, we can entertain ourselves."


Mahesh Manjrekar turned host for both the seasons of Bigg Boss Marathi. Season 1 saw contestants like TV stars such as Usha Nadkarni (she played Savita Deshmukh in the Hindi TV show, Pavitra Rishta), Jui Gadkari and Megha Dhade (she won the show and came on Hindi Bigg Boss 12 last year), film actors Pushakar Jog and Sai Lokur, and even singer Tyagraj Khadilkar.

Season 2 has contestants such as TV stars Kishori Shahane and Veena Jagtap, film actors Abhijeet Kelkar and Neha Shitole, chef Parag Kanhere, and politician Abhijeet Bichukale.
