Rabindra Dhungel, 28 september 2020. The 12th season of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC) is starting from today. This time the show will not have viewers due to the corona virus infection epidemic. But its 77-year-old host Amitabh Bachchan is confidently shooting with the contestant. The reason for Amitabh’s dedication to the show is the contribution he got from the show 20 years ago. In an interview, Amitabh said of KBC, “This show came to me at a time when I needed it the most.
Worked professionally and financially as a catalyst. The show has helped me a lot in repaying my debts during difficult times. ‘
While working for KBC, Amitabh had no support from his family. The family did not want to work on the small screen. But Amitabh started. After the huge success of the first season, Amitabh signed for the second season. But when he suddenly fell ill, the show, which had shot 61 episodes in 85, came to an end. Amitabh refused to host the third season. This season Shah Rukh Khan got the opportunity to run. Which had a good start. But the flop changed when the host changed.
It was the last season to air on Star Plus channel. From the fourth season, KBC has shifted from Star Plus to Sony TV. Again, Amitabh came back as the host. It has been going on till today. Many in India have received good support because of KBC.
