Amitabh Bachchan on KBC 15:
Recently, Amitabh Bachchan offered fans a sneak peek into the making of the show. On his Twitter feed, he posted a set of behind-the-scenes images, offering a glimpse of his dedication to his craft. Accompanying the images were captions reflecting his relentless commitment to preparation, “Rehearsing again and again and again .. for KBC ..” one caption read, while another stated, “Working at it .. KBC, prep.”
“Kaun Banega Crorepati,” often abbreviated as KBC, stands as the Indian iteration of the internationally acclaimed game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Since its inception, Amitabh Bachchan has been the face of the show, except for a brief hiatus during the third season when actor Shah Rukh Khan took over hosting duties.
The show’s format mirrors its international counterpart: contestants face a series of multiple-choice questions and must select the correct answer from four options. To alleviate uncertainty, they have access to lifelines that offer assistance. KBC’s success over the years lies not only in the engaging format but also in Amitabh Bachchan’s charismatic presence, which brings a personal touch to the game.
As KBC 15 unfolds, fans can look forward to yet another season of riveting questions, heartwarming stories, and, above all, Amitabh Bachchan’s magnetic rapport with the contestants.
