Bollywood superstar Salman Khan feels Shahrukh Khan will be the best person to host the upcoming Season 8 of the popular Indian reality show, Bigg Boss.

According to a report on NDTV, Salman, during the launch of the song Devil from his forthcoming film Kick, was asked whether he will be part of the show in the next season.

"There is a possibility (that I may host the upcoming season of Bigg Boss) and there is no possibility also," he said.

The 48-year-old Dabangg star was later asked who he thinks can replace him for the post.

"If not me, then I think Shah Rukh Khan will be a great host for this season of Bigg Boss," he said.

It was previously reported that Salman had differences with the channel and production team, and the actor did not want to return for the next season.

"Salman is known to openly express his feelings and views. He was told to tone down his judgemental attitude towards contestants he did not care for and openly favour others. But Bhai didn't want any curbs on his spontaneity. That's one of the main reasons for his exit," a source told The Times of India.

Meanwhile, Shahrukh has previously hosted quiz shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?), Kya Aap Panchvi Paas SeTej Hain? (The Indian version of the popular American game show, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?) and Zor Ka Jhatka: Total Wipeout.
