Mumbai: Just imagine how amazing it would be to have Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and King Khan Shah Rukh together on a reality show! Buzz has it that SRK reportedly has been approached by the makers of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ to sit on the hot seat and be grilled by Big B.

Talking to a news daily, a highly placed source from the show said, "The channel is very keen to have an episode that would have the two hosts of KBC face to face. They have approached SRK to be a celebrity contestant who will be quizzed by Amitabh. The channel knows that this is what will give them a huge buzz. SRK is undecided. He has good relations with the channel as well as the makers of the show, so it is hugely being anticipated that he might give a nod for this special episode. Everyone has their fingers crossed."

"Big B`s recent conversation about the show with SRK on a social networking site has also garnered interest level in the industry. It was widely said that SRK and Amitabh became close friends a couple of years back thereby rubbishing rumours of their ego clashes that had made headlines for years. So, this cordial relation with Bachchan might as well be the lubricant for SRK to also say a yes to the format. It will get the channel the TRP that it cannot imagine," added the source.

Meanwhile, on the conditions of anonymity, officials of the channel have confirmed that SRK has been approached for KBC and they are eagerly waiting for his response.
