The television audience is fortunate to hear the following words again “Lock Kiya Jaye” “Sure, Confident” “computerji”. Yes you guessed it right, Big B is back and this time all set to Host the 6th Season of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). There were reports that he might not host the sixth edition of the reality game show, but thanks to Twitter, Mr Bachchan tweeted “Off for a meet with Sony for next KBC…planning, operation, execution….will keep you informed on its (KBC’s) broadcast and other details”.
As you all know Mr Bachchan is super active on Twitter and always manages to keep his fans posted about news and his views on various topics. No matter what Mr Bachchan does it’s a news and this time he managed to relive the KBC Moments via Twitter. Following are some of his tweets related to this news.
“KBC: 22 million people tuned in to the opening episode .. Continued to be watched by over 120 million through the 56 episodes!! KBC: 16.5 crores prize money won, at an average of 12.5 lakhs per contestant on HOT SEAT… and.. 7.4 crore entries for GBJJ ..!!
“GBJJ: Ghar Baithe Jeeto Jackpot! Phone in on show, get right answer to a question, can win 1 – 2 – 3 lakhs at times!!”
These stats does show what a mass hysteria was created by this show. The show was first aired in 2000, and was hosted by Big B. This was his first appearance on small screen. And soon the show became a huge hit as Big B hosted first and second seasons. And guess what, following this, Shah Rukh Khan was soon seen in as the host for the third season. But thanks to the low TRP’s Big B soon returned to anchor the fourth season of the show. But this time it was was aired on Sony Entertainment Television. He did not stop there, and was also seen in the 5th Season.
Following is the illustrious list of the winners till the 5th season:
– Harshvardhan Nawathe – 1st winner of KBC in 2000
– Ravi Saini – Winner of KBC Junior 1 Crore (Children under 14)

“Lock Kiya Jaye”
My heartbeat grew 5 times faster when I read this tweet from Sr Bachchan last night-
Earns a salary of Rs 6500/- walks out in an hour with 5 crore rupees…that is what KBC is all about… ‘aam se khas bana deta hai’. This man has displayed a brilliant play of wit and knowledge. We are still reeling with the effect of maximum win. It was an incredible event.
It is certainly unbelievable and implausible to see such a simple and common man to win an amount that can fulfill his lifetime wishes. Sushil Kumar is celebrating his best-ever Diwali this year as he became the first person to win the full prize money of 5 crore rupees in the game show “Kaun Banega Crorepati” . This common man proved that given an opportunity, everyone is capable of reaching the heights.
This episode which was shot yesterday in Mumbai will be aired on Sony TV on 2nd November. Sushil correctly answered the jackpot question asked by Amitabh Bachchan. Sushil Kumar is a 27-year old computer operator and a part time tutor in a village in Champaran district in Bihar.
Sushil and his wife were moved to tears when Sr Bachchan handed over the Rs 5 crore cheque to them. Sushil is registered for minimum wage MNREGA scheme in his village. He doesn’t own a TV at his home currently and used to watch KBC at his neighbour’s place. He recently got married and when asked that what he will do with his prize money, he was excited yet effortless to answer “He plans to buy a new house for his wife, buy himself an impressive library and provide financial help to his brothers.”
This man has set the inspiration for others too who have dreams to make big in their life. He has created history and proved that your determination can bring success in your life.
The entire set of KBC was extremely excited and joyful after Sushil’s win and got everyone in a jubilant mood.
