Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday shared a picture as he celebrates 21 years of India’s favourite game show Kaun Banega Crorepati. Now, the actor is back with another season of the iconic show.
Amitabh Bachchan shared a post that caught everyone’s attention. His son Abhishek Bachchan and granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda showed him some love in the post. Amitabh was seen in a black suit as he sat in his seat on the set of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
He captioned the post with: “… back .. on that chair from 2000 .. that’s 21 years .. a lifetime.. !! …. and gratitude to all that came along …. this look ..@priyapatilstudio.”
Abhishek Bachchan reacted to the post with a raised hand emoji and Navya Nanda posted a red heart emoji on the post. Fans also showered Bachchan’s post with love saying “a living legend you are, sir” and “best wishes sirji for KBC13. You rock’ and ‘awesome sir’.
Bachchan has been giving fans updates on his show through his blog. Last week he wrote, “The rehearse for the season of KBC began and the tech is now being put in place, which shall begin its recordings in a few, for the broadcast in fewer.. restrictions on the virus will be in place with some laxity I believe.. which I gather may be somewhat, to somewhat .. whatever that means …” He also said, “so .. the grind of KBC begins.. on to set for mocks and rehearses …”
The actor then informed fans about the new season, saying: ‘Running late for the first day of recording for KBC 13.. and so regretful. But it’s simply unavoidable.. so many chores to oversee.. and the body can take this much and no more.. but pushing it, to its extreme, to comply and adjust and deliver”.The actor has been hosting the show since 2000 and has since been an integral part of the show.
Season 13 of the show will premiere on August 23. It will air on weekdays at 9 on Sony Television. On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has several projects lined up like Chehre, Jhund, Brahmastra and Mayday. He will also collaborate with Deepika Padukone for the Hindi adaptation of the 2015 Hollywood film ‘The Intern’. Last month, he also started filming for a multilingual sci-fi movie called Project K, with actors Prabhas and Deepika in Hyderabad.
