Amitabh Bachchan: Shahrukh did a good job with ‘KBC’

The Bbuddah claims he’s heard only positive things about the Badshaah’s stint on the game show

Amitabh Bachchan returns as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati? for the fourth time. Ask him if he gets bored doing the same thing again and he replies with his trademark humour, “I’ve got a job again, what’s better than that?” He also does not take credit for the show’s success. You all know how a show that‘s done very well in its first season usually does not repeat its success in its successive runs. KBC broke that pattern, but Amitabh doesn’t think that he is the reason. “The show is successful in all the 80 countries it is run. I am not the host everywhere. It’s the show’s format that’s made it the success it is.” But then what about Season 3, when Shahrukh Khan hosted the show? Now that didn’t live up to the mark of the previous two seasons, right? “That’s not what I have heard. I have heard he did a good job with KBC.” Does that mean King Khan will be a guest on the show this season? Will AB comment? Or do we need to wait and watch to find out?

Kaun Banega Crorepati? 5 will air from August 15 Monday to Thursday at 8.30pm on Sony Entertainment Television
