Kaun Banega Crorepati season 1 first aired on July 3, 2000 where Amitabh Bachchan was the show host. Back than, no Bollywood A-list actors like to be a part of any TV shows. At that point, Amitabh Bachchan has decided to take a risky call by signing the show.
Earlier, many of his close associates, including his family member didn’t wanted that Amitabh Bachchan to do this show. Well, Amitabh thought it is something new and he should give it a try.
Talking about the same, Big B said, “It was just a coincidence. The channel came about with this idea. Circumstances were such that everyone felt I should not go there (on TV) especially people from my home but I just felt that this was something new.”
He further added to PTI, “People, who were in for this show. had a system. I didn’t know about others. I asked them if I could see how it was conducted. We went to England and saw the host there conduct the show. So, I told them if you could give me the same atmosphere that I see in this show then I would like to do it. They gave me that then.”
It was also a phase in Big B’s life when his home production ABCL company was in a huge loss as most of the films made under the banner didn’t worked at box office. It was a time that Big B decided to take the risk and that’s why he is called the megastar of Bollywood.
Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11 is all set to air on August 19, 2019.
