Kaun Banega Crorepati 9: Amitabh Bachchan brings back nostalgia and excitement on small screen with his baritone


Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 on Sony channel brought back superstar Amitabh Bachchan on the small screen after three years. It saw two contestants take up the hot seat. While one lost nerve, the other cake-walked his way into winning Rs 12.5 lakh.

The iconic tune of Kaun Banega Crorepati can still give goosebumps. For those who’ve grown up watching the game show, they were in for a delight when Amitabh Bachchan, in his inimitable baritone greeted the audience on the ninth season of the show. The first episode that aired yesterday on SonyEntertainment Television saw two contestants take up the hot seat and it was indeed a paisa vasool experience.

The episode started with a two-minute short film written and directed by Nitesh Tiwari wherein Amitabh Bachchan spoke about the million questions that hounds us. Be it gender biasness, social background or being from the small town, he opened the episode saying that however sly be the question, it’s time to give reply to each of them.

Dressed in a black bandhgala, Amitabh Bachchan looked as graceful and classy as ever. In his enviable charm, gravitas and charisma, he briefed the contestants of the new rules, and started the game with the fastest-finger-first round. Saroj Varma from Hisar managed to be the quickest and became the first contestant of the ninth season. The teacher, who has brought a change in her village, be it educating women or doing away with the ghungat culture, sadly did not manage to win much as she lost nerve to the opportunity.
