Mumbai: Actor Ravi Dubey says megastar Amitabh Bachchan inspired him to take up hosting.
Ravi, who holds a degree in engineering, started working for commercial advertisements. He shared screen space with Big B in the first advertisement -- which went live.
"My first TV commercial went on air during 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. Watching Amitji on screen was an absolute delight," Ravi said in a statement to IANS.
"That's when I knew I wanted to become a host too," added the "Jamai Raja" actor.
After hosting "Rising Star (Season 2)", Ravi will be seen hosting "Sabse Smart Kaun". The show will go on air on Monday.
