Amitabh Bachchan is back as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati. This will be the fourth season of this very popular show which is based on the UK game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? The fourth season will go on air by the end of this year. However, the broadcaster will not remain the same. The show will now be aired on a different channel.
Kaun Banega Crorepati was Bachchan’s first appearance on Indian television in 2001. In 2005, the show’s second season was called Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya in which the final prize amount was doubled to Rs 2 crore. However, the second season was abruptly stopped when Bachchan fell ill in 2006. Bachchan announced he would return as soon as he recovered, but it was Shah Rukh Khan who finally hosted the show in 2007.
