Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s niece, Alizeh Agnihotri, who is gearing up for her Bollywood debut with the film Farrey, recently appeared on Bigg Boss 17. She took a tour of the Bigg Boss house with Salman and recalled how she visited his movie sets as a child. She added that standing with him on the Bigg Boss set is a cherished moment for her.
After listening to Alizeh’s memories, Salman also took a trip down memory lane and recalled what his father Salim Khan told him when he was about to make his Bollywood debut.
Salman said, “Jab Maine Pyar Kiya ki thi, tab Daddy ne, yaani ke aapke nana, jab unhone picture dekhi and he said tumko kya lagta hai tum star banoge? And I replied to him nahin Daddy. He then said ‘Tum star banoge, tum cult star banoge aur tumko koi rok paayega toh woh tum khud ho. And today I am going to forward your nana’s advise to you (When I did Maine Pyar Kiya, that time my father and your grandfather saw the film and asked, ‘You think you will become a star? I said, ‘No dad.’ He then said, ‘you will become a cult star and if someone can stop you it is you).”
Kuch khaas hoga Bigg Boss ke manch ka haal, jab aayegi Farrey ki cast machaane bawaal. 💥

Salman then told Alizeh, “If not a star, you will become an actor as I’ve seen you work and you are doing good. If anyone who can stop you is yourself. Don’t let that happen to you.” Alizeh agreed with Salman.
Farrey is helmed by Soumendra Padhi and also stars Sahil Mehta, Prasanna Bisht and Zeyn Shaw in pivotal roles.
Salman also told the contestants that because the World Cup fever is high, they’re adding some cricket fun to the show. The makers set up a cricket pitch in the garden, and contestants Munawar Faruqi and Vicky Jain showcased their cricketing skills.
