Bollywood legend, Amitabh Bachchan has confirmed via his Twitter account that the new series of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ will launch in August.
The hugely popular show will return with the ‘Big B’ as host, on Sony Entertainment Television Asia.
It is expected to air in the same weekday primetime slot as it did previously. The new series is likely to take off after ‘X Factor India’ ends in August. Bachchan’s announcement came after his first promotional shoot for the show earlier on today (pictured above). He said, “Yes…KBC back in August…and this time for a longer duration than last time .. and yes welcome to all entrants…come join me…”
He added, “Promo photo shoot by Avinash Gowariker…brilliant as always…used a new lighting system .. excellent…and Rohit Bal on dress.”
At the beginning of this year, it was confirmed that Amitabh Bachchan had signed a deal with the channel to host the show for two more years.
