Jaan told Salman, "Sir, I'm quite nervous since I'm meeting you for the first time ever in my life. I feel like my entire body is trembling. I've been your fan even before I came to know the amount of work my father had done with you. I feel a bit dazed with your presence,"

Siddharth Shukla, who welcomed Jaan as the new member of the house, provided him with some "awesome tips" to see that his journey turns out to be a memorable one. "You need to be yourself, be real and stand up for anything that you feel is right," Sidharth told Jaan.
