When it was revealed that Salman Khan will bid adieu to Bigg Boss 8 and Farah Khan had been roped in to fill in his shoes in the spin off of the popular reality show, fans were shocked with this unexpected turn of events. While many were saddened with Salman’s exit from the show, a hot topic became the centre of discussion among the gossip mongers – Will Farah Khan be as good a host as Salman Khan was?
The first episode of Bigg Boss Halla Bol was aired yesterday and all the speculations and predictions on Farah’s debut were put to rest. We asked fans if they liked the Happy New Year director as the host and this is what they had to say. 60% of Bigg Boss fans said that they missed Salman Khan on the show, indirectly stating that they were disappointed with Farah’s hosting skills. 20% of the fans said that they had lost interest in the show and have stopped watching Bigg Boss all together. Only 20% of the viewers seemed to be happy seeing Farah as the host, as they thought she did a fine job at it.
Looking at the poll results, we are not surprised that Salman’s raw charisma is certainly missed by fans. However, we feel it would be too early to write off Farah as a disappointment, as one would agree that filling Salman’s shoes is a really tough task. With more episodes to come, we hope that Farah manages to recapture the losing interest of fans in the show.
