Bigg Boss 14 held a virtual press conference on Thursday during which Salman Khan introduced Jaan Kumar Sanu, the son of singer Kumar Sanu, as the first contestant on the show. As fans of BB are extremely thrilled to see the drama and the entertainment that will be caused by the contestants in the house, the host of the show, Salman Khan is a little worried, maybe even terrified to shoot during the pandemic. Considering the number of cases on the rise, his parents' age and health and his little niece Aayat, Salman Khan is scared to be on shoot as he doesn't want to transmit any virus to them. While talking to TOI, Salman Khan expressed his apprehensions of shooting during the Coronavirus pandemic.
He was quoted saying, "I am scared to be on shoot. Though everyone is taking all the precautions and are wearing PPE kits, masks, gloves but the mic they adjust so close and they come so close that it feels they will kiss any moment. I am scared of cold, coughs and even kisses these days."
He further added, "I was apprehensive to shoot the show because there is a newborn in the house. My sister Arpita and Aayush's daughter Aayat my niece and then there are my parents and Helen aunty. There are also other senior citizens in the family and friends. The thought is if we get infected we will manage but when it comes to parents and kids I get scared." He also said that despite knowing that they will survive, he doesn't want them to go through the discomfort of 15 days and health issues.
The Dabangg 3 actor also revealed that the Bigg Boss 14 contestants must be happy as they got work in this situation. Khan also expressed his happiness as a show like Bigg Boss is giving employment to so many people.
