During the interaction, Salman Khan was asked about his decision of returning to the show even after saying that he won’t do Bigg Boss ever again. To which the actor revealed that he often gets irritated and decide not to do the show again, but the makers have no choice so they come back to him. Talking about how theu don't find a suitable match to replace him, Salman said:
"There are times when I get irritated and I tell the channel that I don't want to host the show. But they don't have the choice so they come back to me. If they had choice they would have replaced me long back. They would never come to replace me. There are a lot of people who have replaced me."
Further in the interaction, Salman addressed the ongoing reports of him charging a remuneration of Rs. 1000 crores for the show. The actor mentioned that if he would be paid this amount, he would never work in his life and revealed that his earning is one-fourth of the said amount. In his words:

If I get paid this amount I have so many other expenses like lawyers that I actually need them. My lawyers are no less than Salman Khan. My earning is not even one fourth of it. These reports are read by income tax and ED department too."
