There are many reality shows which are being aired on the Indian television in the present times and all of them have their targeted audiences but there is one reality show which is loved by people from each age group and in many families, it has become a ritual for all family members to watch this show together.
Yes, you guessed it right! We are talking about Kaun Banega Crorepati, the quiz reality show which is being hosted by the legendary Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan. KBC’s first episode was aired on 3 July 2000 and till now, 1130 episodes have been aired in 15 seasons of the show.
Undoubtedly, Amitabh Bachchan has earned the reputation of being an iconic host by hosting this quiz show but the essential fact cannot be ignored that Big B accepted the proposal of hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati not because he wanted to do it but for the reason that he was going through a tough phase and it seemed to be a little better option than all the other options which he was getting.
In those times, television was seen as an inferior medium in comparison to movies and Bollywood actors didn’t like to come on TV. When AB Senior accepted the proposal of hosting the quiz show, it was termed as his downfall by the people from Bollywood and even Amitabh Bachchan’s wife Jaya Bachchan was not happy with him doing KBC.
In an old interview, Jaya Bachchan accepted that she never wanted Big B to do this quiz reality show because she didn’t wish him to shrink in the television. In an old interview, Amitabh Bachchan also admitted that he agreed to host the show because of the difficult circumstances he was facing as on one hand, he needed money and on the other, he was struggling as a movie actor and was not getting work in films. As per the reports, the makers of Kaun Banega Crorepati paid good amount to the actor which further helped him in taking the decision of hosting the show because he was struggling financially as well.
KBC is certainly one of the best shows of the Indian television, it gives chance to a candidate to win a huge amount of money by using his knowledge and viewers also gain knowledge by watching the show.
Amitabh Bachchan is one of the busiest actors of B-Town in current times and now it will be difficult to even imagine someone else hosting the show in his place, agree?
