Salman Khan believes he is a family man and that resulted in the removal of the standees of Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover's naughty condom ad from the Bigg Boss 11 house. According to reports, Salman thought that the ad was ‘too hot to handle’ and unsuitable for the viewers of Bigg Boss 11 which is much hyped as a family show.
The superstar believes that a major part of the show's audience are children and allowing a sexually titillating ad a spot on the show is in poor taste. Soon after Salman conveyed this to the makers of the show, the standees of the condom ad were removed from the Bigg Boss 11 house. The report says that there were no arguments between the makers and the superstar.
According to Deccan Chronicle, the advertisement apparently pops up on screen while the show is in progress and it is not yet clear if even that will be pulled off air. The advertisement in question had earlier made quite a few headlines when Bipasha and Karan were trolled for endorsing a condom brand.
While a condom ad spreads awareness about safe sex to a country with the “second largest population”, Salman is keen to ensure that Bigg Boss remains a clean show. There are families and little kids take a lot of interest in the show and therefore, Salman doesn't want to disappoint them.
In a country that has the second largest population in the world.. we still have taboos on just the words sex and condoms... but not the actual act. Let’s talk more... read more and learn more about all the things that can be avoided just by the use of a simple precaution. With condoms you can have planned pregnancies and protected sex... which can curb HIV and STD cases. As a couple we believe in this that’s why we have thoughtfully endorsed it. @playgardcondoms @iamksgofficial @prasadnaaik #loveyourself
On a personal level, Bipasha went on to share the advert on her Instagram feed to advocate safe sex.Salman has spent more than 25 years in the film industry and remains one of the few male actors who has not kissed onscreen or shot for any intense lovemaking scenes or portrayed an out-and-out negative character.
