Kaun Banega Crorepati 13: Amitabh Bachchan gets emotional as he reveals the reason for hosting KBC in 2000
On the show, Shweta asked her father Amitabh how he felt about KBC completing 1000 episodes. Responding to the question, he said, "Darasal, ikkis saal ho gaye hain. San 2000 mein iski shuruat hui thi. Aur uss samay humko pata nahi tha. Sab log keh rahe they ke aap film se television mein jaa rahe hain, bade parde se chhote parde par aa rahe hain, aapki image ko nuksaan hoga (It has been 21 years. The show began in 2000. At that time, I had no idea. People warned me that moving from the big screen to the small screen would harm my image)."
“Lekin humari apni kuch paristhitiyan aisi thi ke mujhe laga ke filmon mein kaam jo hai wohh mil nahi raha tha, lekin pehle broadcast ke baad jiss tarah ke reaction aane shuru hue, phir aisa laga ke puri duniya badal gayi hai (However, my circumstances were such that I wasn’t getting any work in films at that time, but after the show premiered, the kind of reactions I received made me believe that the world changed for me),” he further said.
The host also said, "Sabse achhi baat jo mujhe lagi woh yeh ki humare jitne bhi contestants aaye unse prati din, prati contestant se mujhe kuch na kuch seekhne ko mila (The best part is that I learnt something every day from every contestant).” The studio audience along with Shweta and Navya was seen applauding and cheering for Bachchan.
The makers also played a video showing glimpses of the game show from 2000 till date. After the video came to an end, Amitabh was seen getting emotional and wiped away his tears. KBC is currently in its 13th season. Barring season 3, Amitabh has hosted all the seasons of the show. Actor Shah Rukh Khan was the host of season 3.
