Kaun Banega Crorepati 8: Amitabh Bachchan to shoot a live episode in Surat

The desi version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is going on air sometime in August

Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 8 is probably one of the most awaited quiz shows in the country. For the first time, an episode of the knowledge based show will be shot live amidst the citizens of Surat, Gujarat.

The fans of KBC will not only get the opportunity to watch the show live but will also get to participate in it. The event is scheduled for August 2 at the Surat International Exhibition & Convention Centre in Surat. The registrations for the show commenced from July 22. Every potential contestant has to clear two rounds to get an opportunity to play the fastest finger round. The winner will get to sit on the hot seat opposite the legendary actor.

While the idea is novel and interesting, we wonder why the makers chose to have this event in Surat of all the places in the country. Is it because Big B is the brand ambassador of Gujarat tourism? Well if that’s the case this is indeed a case of hitting two birds with one stone, right BollywoodLifers?
