Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is back with the 10th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati on Sony Entertainment Television.
Talking about the King of KBC, he says “The content and format is the most brilliant part of the show and then comes the contestants. The format and content make this show. For all these years, I met audience and contestants, and there is a personal connect with them. Whenever the contestants wait for the shoot to start, I personally feel that we should not keep them waiting. Hence, we shoot as soon as possible for them. Another thing is that I get very happy when contestants play well. We want them to earn as much money as possible.”
Amitabh believes that he is very bad at general knowledge. “I will lose if I become a contestant on KBC10. I won’t be able to answer more than 2-3 questions. My general knowledge is very poor.”
He also spoke about granddaughter Aaradhya being fond of the show’s background music. “She knows that there is a show called KBC. She prefers the tune. I have not played with her but I should start.”
The veteran actor also opened up about the actors in the Hindi film industry today and how he is in awe of the young talent. “I am inspired by Meena Kumari, Nutan and Waheeda Rehman. I am a fan of Waheeda Rehman and Dilip Kumar. I am honoured that I got a chance to work with Nutan and Waheeda Rehman. In the new generation, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma are exceptional performers. We took years to polish our craft and the new lot like Ranbir Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Dhawan, Rajkummar Rao, Kartik Aryan are brilliant artists. I am really fortunate that I got to live the period where actresses like Nutan and Waheeda worked and now Alia and Ranbir. It is an unbelievable experience.”
“I welcome Salman to host the show,” Bachchan said when asked for his reaction on Salman’s desire to be part of the show.
Wishing Big B the best of luck for the new season of KBC!!
