TV most challenging format: Amitabh Bachchan

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is all set to host the fourth season of the popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) on Sony, says the small screen is not only the “most challenging format”, it is a “lot tougher” as well.
“I have never minded exploring fresh avenues. I think it (TV) is a most challenging format and a lot tougher. Tougher because there are no set lines. Most of it is impromptu and on the spur of the moment. For people like me, who are accustomed to pre- written dialogues, it then does become challenging,” said Big B who hosted Bigg Boss for Colors last year.

The new season of KBC is expected to go on air on Amitabh’s birthday, which is on Oct 11.

“I believe the channel is considering the 11th (October). If it happens, yes it does become special. Birthdays are always special,” he said.

“It feels good. I feel very nostalgic. Other than the channel changes, most of the crew is the same with Siddharth Basu and his team. It’s good to be among familiar faces again.”said Amitabh. “There are some changes in the show, which will be revealed once it starts its broadcast. However the basic format cannot undergo much alteration, that shall remain. But yes being able to reach out to the common man and to give him or her an opportunity which could be a life changing amount in winnings, is where the excitement lies. For the celeb shows, there is a challenging change and we hope that that will draw in many of them to come and play for a cause.” said Big B. When asked about his future projects,the Big B says ” There are a few projects that we are looking at. After the success of Paa, AB Corp is being looked at with renewed interest. We would want that interest to continue.”
