A guilty pleasure for the audience, the Salman Khan hosted show enjoys a massive fan following, not just in public, but in Bollywood too. Well, yes.

I am one of those obsessed fans who ask everyone to keep quiet when the show comes on TV. So, finally when I went to Bigg Boss 13 for Pati Patni Aur Woh promotions, I was so much in awe I couldn’t speak much. I was like, is this for real? I was overwhelmed to see Salman Khan sir in real life! I was like…am I really here on the set of Bigg Boss, a show that I have seen so many years?” Ananya told.
