It all started off in the year 2000 when the TV industry saw a (r)evolution of sorts in the form of the Indian adaptation of the widely watched game show ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’. The Indian version of the game show was titled as ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, which later gained popularity as ‘KBC’. The USP of Kaun Banega Crorepati was that it gave the common man an opportunity of a lifetime to be not just seated on a hot seat opposite the megastar Amitabh Bachchan (who was the host of the show), but also take home a one crore rupee jackpot prize, amongst the other prize monies.
The years gone by have seen Amitabh Bachchan as the inimitable host of all the seasons of the widely watched show, barring one season where Shah Rukh Khan was roped in as the host. Post that, it has been Amitabh Bachchan all the way, who has been hosting the show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.
According to Bollywood Hungama’s reliable sources, the upcoming season of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ however will see a change of host. As per our sources, Ranbir Kapoor will be hosting the game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ in the upcoming season. If this buzz turns out to be true, then, Ranbir Kapoor will be replacing the inimitable Amitabh Bachchan as the host of the popular game show.
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, since there has been no official announcement or confirmation about the same. Having said that, let us also add that, if the aforementioned news buzz turns out to be true, then, do remember, you read about it first on Bollywood Hungama.
