Amitabh Bachchan gets naughty on KBC 5!
There was much masti on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 when Big B wore his heart on his sleeve and handed out some…err… fashion advice
Amitabh Bachchan was in a rather mischievous mood last night on Kaun Banega Crorepati? 5. This happened when he was his usual chatty self on the popular TV show. When a fairly roly-poly lady contestant complained about her weight, Big B pacified her, saying that she was not too fat, and tried guessing her weight.

Expecting a reply on the lines of ‘I want to lose weight for my husband’, the dashing host was amused when the lady said she wanted to shed the extra kilos because she couldn’t fit into her sari blouses any more! Bachchan couldn’t control his laughter and pointed out that there were many tailors in the country who could help her. But since a garment’s length could be decreased but not increased without adding fabric, he had his own solution to the problem. Click here to read more
