The superstar will shoot for the promos of Kaun Banega Crorepati; the show will go on air in mid 2012
Rajinikanth is not the only one back to work after his illness. Amitabh Bachchan, who had to undergo a couple of surgeries recently, will be back shooting sooner than expected. And that too for his famous quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati. Big B will host the sixth season of the television show that will go on air in mid 2012. And he will shoot for the promos first.
When contacted, producer of Kaun Banega Crorepati, Siddharth Basu, told Mumbai Mirror, "Yes, Mr Bachchan will host the forthcoming season of KBC. I intend working with him on this show even for the seventh season."
A source close to the show explained, "Mr Bachchan had signed a two-year contract on KBC in 2011. However, after the two hernia surgeries, people wondered whether he would be able to take up the grueling assignment of hosting a daily television show. But now, he has confirmed with the broadcasters that he will indeed shoot for the show."
Bachchan's rich baritone and his inimitable style had made the quiz show an instant hit with the audience. After a break of one year, the superstar had returned to the show and has played the host every year.
