Salman Khan has said that the format for Big Boss has been changed to suit a family audience.

Khan, who is the host of the celebrity reality show based on the UK's Big Brother, admitted that he was "hurt" when the show was deemed unsuitable for family viewing following explicit content in the last series.

Speaking to The Times of India, the actor said: "Last season, the show got reprimanded by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry for its explicit and at times vulgar content. The timing was pushed from 9pm to 11pm. I was hurt."

Khan, who has a strong public image as a 'family entertainer', said that the contestants for the next season have been carefully selected to ensure the content is suitable for a family audience.

"My parents and friends couldn't watch the show because of the rampant fights and abusive language. And doing all this to gain popularity isn't right," he continued.

"This season there will be a lot more contestants including some common people apart from the celebrities. This I feel should be interesting and will make for a good family watch."

The Ek Tha Tiger star joked that he would not be seen swimming in the show's outdoor pool, saying: "Main Salman hoon, Sunny Leone nahi."

Khan has signed up to host the sixth season of the Indian version of Big Brother, which was previously hosted by Sanjay Dutt.

Khan has been praised by Kaun Banega Crorepati host Amitabh Bachchan for his work in TV.
