Adapted from Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, KBC first premiered in July 2000 and has been reinventing itself with every season. Except for season 3, which was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan, all other seasons have been hosted by Bachchan.
Bachchan was last seen alongside Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in Thugs of Hindostan. Yes, the 11th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati will soon make its comeback and it will be hosted by Bollywood’s megastar, Amitabh Bachchan.
According to The Indian Express, the show campaign this year has been conceptualized and executed by Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari. The promotional video of Kaun Banega Crorepati showcases a young woman who wants to handle their family business but their family members seem unhappy with her decision and start taunting her for everything she does. Somehow, she reached Kaun Banega Crorepati and turns out as a winner. The behavior of her family members, friends and her brother’s behavior towards her suddenly changes and they all start appreciating her and showering her well wishes.

Talking about the KBC show, the producers had earlier told mid-day, “Given the large scale on which the show is mounted, the team always begins the groundwork well in advance. A string of teasers has been planned in the run-up to the show’s airing in the second half of the year. While Bachchan Saab has been busy with the shoot of Jhund and Brahmastra, he will squeeze in a day for the filming of the first teaser. The promo will primarily see Big B asking viewers to put on their thinking caps once again as he returns with his quizmaster act.”
