When Kaun banega Crorepati aka KBC first started airing in the year 2000, in the form of the Indian adaptation of the widely watched game show ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’. The whole nation turned towards the small screen at 9pm sharp--just to get a glimpse of the legend that is Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, interacting with the common man or woman.
That has been the kind of magic the Indian megastar managed to weave on television. The show became immensely popular with the Indian masses, and only a part of it was owed to the money we could win.
But the show has had quite long breaks between seasons. The last season was aired in 2014, and we have missed the game show, and its inimitable host.
But if believe to some sources, the upcoming season of KBC will see a change of host as well. As per our sources, Ranbir Kapoor will be hosting the game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ in the upcoming season.
But as of now, the way things are standing, the rumors about Ranbir Kapoor replacing Amitabh Bachchan to be hosting the next season of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ seems more like a market buzz.
Well, In an interview in 2013, Ranbir Kapoor said, “It’s a good thing that TV is doing really well. I like Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss, Amitji’s (Amitabh Bachchan) Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). If given a chance, I would like to do a quiz show like KBC. I would like to explore TV as well.”
