Amitabh Bachchan reminisces about his first KBC experience
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is looking forward to hosting the fourth season of popular reality show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, turned nostalgic on his blog and recounted his experience when he first hosted the show – a decade back.
Reminiscing about the first season of the show, which changed his life forever and gave a huge boost to his career, Big B wrote, “So it’s Kaun Banega Crorepati after 10 years of its first broadcast in year 2000 and goodness it all feels like it was yesterday. No one, but no one, had advised me to do it, except the Channel. But the day it started many worlds changed. Mine for sure.”
“The Channel and all the crew had set up the evening of its first broadcast at the studio where the set was constructed, and had wanted all of us to witness it, to be followed by a celebration. I had declined. I was scared and nervous not knowing what the public would have to say about the show, about my involvement and its eventual result,” Big B wrote.
“I had come home and isolated myself in my office room and quietly had put on the TV, almost not wanting anyone to hear that I was watching the program. After 5 mins of its start I put it off, unable to bear what the rest of the country was thinking about it and waited silently for it to get over. And when it did I hesitated to face the family. It was in vain though. The family, represented by Jaya had watched the entire show and when I came to her she said “Amit ji ! This show is going to be a super hit!,” the legendary actor wrote further.
“KBC was and has been an extraordinary experience for me for many reasons. As we go along this fresh association we shall fill you in with some of the stories on it and around it,” Big B promised.
Well, we just wish that the fourth season of the show goes on to break all records.
