Apart from keeping the audience on the edge of the seat on his quiz show, mega star Amitabh Bachchan often shares some lesser-known incidents of his life on the set of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Going down the memory lane with a KBC contestant, Amitabh recalled how his mother, Teji Bachchan, caught him listening to cricket commentary.
It all started when the contestant, Saurabh Shekhar, narrated that he would get beaten up by his father after trying to step out to watch a match. Upon this, Bachchan quickly shared that he is sailing on the same boat. The veteran actor said, “Once I was trying to hear a match on radio by going under a blanket and my mother caught me and I got beaten up.”
On the other, in another segment of the upcoming episode, the 79-year-old actor also talked about cropping his pictures “carefully” before posting them on his social media platforms. He asserted, “people will ask what is the glass doing behind? Where are you sitting? So I carefully crop my face and only post it so that people don’t comment.”
Meanwhile, the Kaun Banega Crorepati host also asked the contestant to share his experience of the “Play Along” section of the show. In response, Saurabh revealed he had earned some lakhs while playing KBC online during the pandemic.
Currently, Sony Entertainment is premiering the 14th season of the show with Big B. Along with contestants, actor Amir Khan, sports icons Mary Kom and Sunil Chhetri, and India’s first Blade Runner, Major DP Singh, among others, have also graced the show.
