Kaun Banega Crorepati—the name itself brings a whole lot of dreams and aspirations to your minds. Isn’t it? Since its inception in 2000, KBC, as it is profoundly known as, has been a winner. It has been the source of inspirations to many and life changing bait to some. It is one such show, which is enjoyed by Indians of all social strata and castes, and maybe that is the reason behind its stupendous popularity. But one thing, can you imagine KBC without Amitabh Bachchan? 78% of Indians will say NO to this question. With the show’s season 8 just round the corner, let us find some reason why Indians cannot imagine KBC without Big B—
5. The Audiences Love Big B
Another reason why people cannot imagine KBC without Amitabh Bachchan is because the Indians simply love him over anything and everything! He is more like a demi-God to the Indians whose smile, if seen daily, can cure a person off any disease. It surely sounds funny, but such is the way in India!
4. He Has His Charm….He Never Goes Out Of The Way to Prove That
Well, when SRK came to host the show, you could often see him giving off his watch to the contestants. Well, that may seem to many as a token of good luck, to many it seemed but a part of his condescending attitude. We believe, if you’re genuinely attached to someone, your words are enough to express your gratitude, and Mr. Bachchan does exactly that. His pleasing personality, his way of talking, his way of hosting the show have made numerous people watch the show solely for him. After all, how many people do you think would be interested to go sit in front of the television and watch a quiz show held during the primetime, leaving all those matches and serials?
3. His Trademark Antics
He may not be out and out funny, but his wit scores on behalf of that. Besides, do you know many people simply sit in front of the camera, waiting for Amitabh Bachchan deliver his trademark “dialogues”, “Computerji lock kia jaye…”, “Good night, Subhratri..” and so on and so forth. Besides, have you seen any other actor, except Gulzar, who can talk in such impeccable Hindi at a stretch without having to resort to any English word for the matter? In a country where more than 60% people do not have a grasp over the English language, this comes out as a boon. We wonder when the other actors of the “industry” will come to accept this fact!
2. Bacchan’s Striking Personality Has Won It All
Mr. Bachchan’s voice, his appeal and his charisma spells KBC. Being basically a quiz show, KBC demands a semi-serious demeanor—you have to be serious always, but at the same time, the fun content too has to be there, otherwise, it won’t get the necessary TRP ratings. And, Amitabh Bachchan’s balancing act does it all. Can you ever imagine such a big star pulling the chair for some “common” person, keep his/her tiniest requests, and maintain a charismatic attitude at the same time?? It’s possible only with Big B and no one else!
1. KBC and Big B Seems Synonyms Of Each Other
Well, we know Amitabh Bachchan has been a part of numerous films and is one of the most celebrated actors the country has. But we all know how KBC helped him to get rid of all his debts and start a career in Bollywood afresh. On the other hand, KBC has been like his child. You cannot make a show hit from its second season; if it has to attract audience’s attention, it has to be right from Day 1. And, needless to say, no one else but Mr. Bachchan’s charismatic personality has done that….and much more than that. In a way, you can say, both of them are intrinsically related—you cannot help imagine KBC without Amitabh Bachchan, no matter how many SRK’s come and host the show.
