‘Bigg Boss 13’ grand premiere: How Katrina Kaif was part of Salman Khan’s show time-and-again without even being present
The much-awaited Bigg Boss 13 finally aired on Television last night. Salman Khan shook a leg, unveiled all contestants, spoke at length about the new theme of the show. He not only introduced the contestants, but also gave them duties and bed friends forever in the premiere episode.
During the three-hour-long episode, Salman Khan happened to be reminded of or mentioned Katrina Kaif, without the actress even being part of the show. It happened for the first time with a contestant which Salman introduced on Bigg Boss 13.
Salman introduced contestants number 9 and 10 – two females named Shefali Bagga and Shehnaz Kaur Gill. While Shefali is a journalist, Shehnaz, a bubbly personality from Punjab, calls herself Punjab’s Katrina Kaif. She kept on mentioning the same, as she flirted with Salman Khan. In fact Shehnaz also asked Salman Khan if she looks like Punjab’s Katrina Kaif, and he agreed.
Bigg Boss 13 show host, Salman, then went on to introduce Daljeet Kaur, but soon after, when contestant number 12, former Bollywood actress Koena Mitra was about to be introduced on stage, he ended up calling her ‘Katrina’. Salman even confessed further that he was about to call Koena Mitra, Katrina Kaif.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif share a history together. He introduced the actress to Bollywood, and they remain good friends currently. In fact Salman and Katrina have worked in two movies together recently – Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat, along with director Ali Abbas Zafar.
