From August 19, 2019, Amitabh Bachchan will be back on the small screen with his iconic show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). This is going to be the 11th season of the quiz show and megastar of Bollywood can’t contain his excitement for the same. Big B has hosted the show for nine seasons and every year people look forward to the new season and to see him back as the dapper host.
KBC 11 is directed by Arun Sheshkumar and during a recent interaction with Mid Day, he shared his excitement on the same. Arun stated, “His energy is more than what it was during season one. Every year, Mr Bachchan becomes younger. He becomes like a kid on set.
He tells us, ‘Chalo, aaj kya naya karna hai?’ He enjoys the process as the kid in him is very much alive. For us, it becomes more challenging to bring in the novelty. He treats himself as part of the show, and not as a superstar. There is no one on the set who can say that Mr Bachchan did not wave out to him.”
Arun also shared, “The latest addition to the KBC set is a buggy camera. It has become Bachchan’s favourite toy as it follows him around,” he laughs, before adding, “This is the first time that such a camera is being used on a reality show. It has been used in IPL matches earlier.”
Today, Amit Ji wrote on his blog about KBC stating, “It has been the time when the ‘passings’ of known have left the thought of the eventuality of time and living and the times on the KBC have been equally disturbing, inspiring, filled with the emotions that had they remained a second more the flow of the liquids that depict sorrow and extreme happiness would have spilled over their natural boundaries and filled the heart with remorse in some and pride in another.”
