The Hindustan reported on Feb. 13, 2013, that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will be making his debut as a awards show host in the upcoming Renault Star Guild Awards 2013 in Mumbai.
Salman Khan is known for not attending or accepting any awards for the last 10 years. However the superstar accepted an award this month.
The awards night will be hosted on Saturday, Feb 16 in Mumbai. Salman has already hosted many TV shows like 'Bigg Boss' and 'Nach Baliye' in the past, but this is the first time that he will be hosting an awards ceremony.
According to a source, “Salman is all set to entertain members of the film and television fraternity and his fans at the award ceremony.
"He has never done this before, so it’s quite a surprise for everyone. He has a unique style of hosting, and he will surely make for an absolute entertainer. That was the whole idea behind getting him on board.”
The source continues, “This news was kept under wraps for quite some time. The whole idea was to surprise everyone.
"For Salman, who otherwise doesn’t even go up on stage to receive his awards, doing this is a big deal. The organisers are extremely delighted.”
