As the so-called Alag Che parivarik avatar of Bigg Boss 6 takes its final twists and turns before the finale, buzz has it that megastar host Salman Khan wants his 'friend', model Niketan Madhok, to win the celebrity reality show this year.
Salman received widespread criticism last year for allegedly promoting and protecting contestant Mahek Chahal in Bigg Boss 5, upsetting others like Siddharth Bhardwaj, Pooja Bedi, Pooja Misrra, Akashdeep Sky Saigal, Amar Upadhyay, Vida Samadzai and Shakti Kapoor, some of whom, openly spoke against the superstar and alleged that the show was biased and scripted.
According to insiders, Salman finds himself in the same situation again this year.
Sometime ago, past pictures of Niketan with Salman surfaced in the media, pointing towards his closeness to the contestant.
While other pictures showed Salman walking out of an event and posing with Niketan, one picture had him driving a car, with Niketan in the back seat.
When we asked Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar, who has handled the media for maximum celebrities on the show, the publicist shot back, `How does it matter? Whosoever gets the maximum votes will win! Isn't it? If Niketan is most famous, he will win. If not, he won't.`
