Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has hosted game show `Kaun Banega Crorepati` (KBC) five times but he still finds it nerve-wracking.

Except for the third edition, which was hosted by superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh has been seen on the quizmaster`s seat. He has also shot three to four episodes of the seventh season of the show based on international quiz show `Who Wants To Be A Millionaire`. But the 70-year-old says he still feels nervous.

"I do get nervous. Whether it is a press meet or work. It`s nerve-wracking. I disagree that just because you are a professional you are not going to get nervous," Amitabh told reporters here during press conference held for launch of seventh season of KBC.

Before KBC`s recordings started earlier this week, Bachchan had even twitted about feeling jitters in stomach.

The game show will be aired three times a week starting Sep 6.
