'KBC' Season 13 returns with Amitabh Bachchan as host, again
Amitabh Bachchan is returning as the host for the 13th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati soon. In a promo video, Sony TV announced today that the registration for the latest season will begin on May 10. Bachchan, who has been the face of KBC since its inception, barring one season, also appeared in the video urging people to participate in the show.
'The distance between dream and reality is decided by trying'
With the characteristic music in the background, Big B was seen entering the sets of KBC in the promo clip. His voiceover said that the distance between someone's dream and reality is decided by one word, "Koshish" (trying). Bachchan then encouraged the public to get ready for the quiz show, as both he and the hotseat were awaiting the new participants.
Hotseat and I are waiting for you, says Bachchan
12th season of the show concluded in January this year
Sharing the clip, the official Instagram handle of Sony TV said, "Aa rahe hain phir ek baar Mr. @amitabhbachchan lekar #KBC ke sawaal! Toh uthaiye phone aur ho jaaiye taiyyar kyunki 10 May se shuru ho rahe hai #KBC13 ke registrations." Loyal KBC fans celebrated the news online. To recall, the 12th season of the show concluded in January this year.
The promo we saw was made from last year's clips
Owing to the COVID-19 rules and lockdown restrictions in Maharashtra, the team couldn't shoot for the promo video. They instead took bits and pieces from last year's footage and created the video, while Bachchan recorded the audio from his house, as per a report in The Indian Express. Showrunners expect the COVID-19 situation would come under control by the time the shoot starts.
Bachchan shot for the previous season amid the pandemic
Last season, the veteran actor had shot for the show during the pandemic. All the participants maintained social distance on the set and some format changes were also incorporated. For example, no audience was allowed for the first time. Over the years, KBC has created a trusted fanbase. Not only people enjoy Bachchan's anecdotes, fans also look forward to expanding their knowledge bank!
