Amitabh Bachchan, host of Kaun Banega Crorepati, was struck speechless after a contestant revealed something touching about him. Amitabh announced a special “Aasha Abhilasha” week on the show in a promo video for the show, during which he claimed he would strive to fulfil people’s desires.
Amitabh Bachchan was seen chatting with various candidates who had demands for him in a video released on Instagram by Sony Entertainment Television. While one individual requested that Amitabh recite a few lines from his father Harivanshrai Bachchan’s poetry Agneepath, another asked if he would name her soon-to-be-born grandchild.
She said in Hindi, “Sir, during this Aasha Abhilasha week, even I have a request for you. I am about to become a grandmother, and I would be honoured if you would agree to naming the baby.” Amitabh congratulated her, as she continued, “This way, my generation, my son’s generation, his child’s generation – all three generations – would be connected to you.”
Before the clip broke off, Amitabh smiled and turned away, indicating that he didn’t have an immediate response. Explaining the concept of the Aasha Abhilasha week, Amitabh said in his introduction, “Through this initiative, we will try to fulfil the wishes of our studio audience, our contestants, and even viewers at home.”
In a very interesting episode last week, Farah Khan denied the incident occurred, but Big B went ahead and told the story, leaving the audience and actress laughing.
Amitabh Bachchan began the video by asking Deepika if Farah had ever scolded her during a shoot. To which Deepika replied, “Ask me when she has not scolded me on a film set”.
Farah afterwards sought to refute it, saying, “No sir, I have not.” However, the superstar and show’s host went on to say, “I’ve heard you scold a lot on sets.” Deepika, there was one song that Farah (Deepika) had to choreograph with Abhishek and me. We had to put a cap on our heads, and despite all of our practise, it didn’t fall on my head.
He continued, “Then she scolded me, ‘Hey get it right, who do you think you are?’” Farah interjects and says, “I was telling that to Abhishek, sir!” Bachchan replied, “But his cap was falling right.” To which Farah jokingly asked, “Is your cap falling correctly now?”
