"I believe that nobody else than Salman bhai can host this show. Believe me, it is very, very difficult to host the show," Apurva said in an interview.
Salman joined "Bigg Boss" in its fourth season and has been hosting it since. The show fetches good TRPs, thanks to the heightened drama, mud slinging, fights and emotions in the "Bigg Boss" house.
"There are all kinds of weird people and their answers are also weird, but Salman bhai has a great presence of mind. When he has to snub somebody, he does it the polite way and tells what should be done and what not.
"When it comes to doing 'masti', in that also he excels. I think he is the perfect host for the show," he added.
Apurva's elimination came right after Kushal Tandon's dismissal from the show. But he wants his good friend Kushal to re-enter the show and come out as a winner.
"The best thing about Kushal is that he presents himself the way he is. He is not pretentious at all. He is not acting," said Apurva, who had entered the "Bigg Boss" house with his wife Shilpa, who has been voted out too.
"He is not fighting or getting into a spat with others just for fun," he added.
Apurva, known for his TV shows such as "Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin" and "Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi", has other names that he feels might win the reality show.
"The second name I would prefer is Kamya (Punjabi). I think she is a perfect combination - she can be aggressive, but at the same time she can also take a stand for the correct thing. She can sternly give her opinion as well," Apurva said.
Bigg Boss Saath 7" went on air Sep 15.
