Amitabh Bachchan on returning to Kaun Banega Crorepati: ‘Each time I say never again…’


Actor Amitabh Bachchan is set to return as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati for the quiz show’s 14th season soon. The actor took to his official blog to announce that work on the new season had commenced, and shared some photographs of himself from the quiz show’s sets in Mumbai.

Bachchan wrote, “Back to the boards and the apprehension and fears and doubts arise again… and each season presents itself similarly… others think otherwise… they are not wise, or in due process of the understanding needed to face camera and audience… a claim much debated, but in all earnestness it is factual for me…”

“There is an ‘each time I say never again’ and yet it all comes back when the commitment has been made.. so comply and accept and go ahead with the best efforts.. . and so one tries,” he added.

Bachchan has been associated with the show from the very beginning. He has hosted the show since its inception in 2000, except for the third season in 2007, which was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan.
