Mumbai: Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are both superstars in their own right but when it comes to choosing between the two, Amitabh seems to have emerged a clear winner with TV channels. Believe it or not, but a certain channel that is set to showcase both ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 4’ and ‘Dus Ka Dum 3’ has decided to drop Sallu’s show this year in order to concentrate completely on Amitabh’s return on the small-screen.

Shocking right? A source from the TV industry said, “The officials in Mumbai were told by their head office that they should concentrate on ‘Dus Ka Dum 3’only after they had put ‘KBC 4’ in place, and preferably on floors. ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is the channel’s baby. Since this time they have the opportunity to broadcast it themselves, they have decided to pool in all their resources to make it grand.”

As for the telecast,‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 4’ is expected to be on air from November/ December this year while ‘Dus Ka Dum 3’ will now air in 2011.

When asked as to why the channel couldn’t have concentrated on both the shows simultaneously, the source said, “They want ‘Dus Ka Dum 3’ on a much bigger canvas than its earlier two seasons.”

Well, looks like Amitabh is a clear winner here.
