With the imminent launch of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ on Sony Entertainment Television Asia, rumours have started about a celebrity edition of the show being planned.

Speculation is rife that Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly been approached by the makers of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ to sit on the hot seat and be grilled by host Amitabh Bachchan.

Talking to a news daily, a highly placed source from the show said, “The channel is very keen to have an episode that would have the two hosts of KBC face to face. They have approached SRK to be a celebrity contestant who will be quizzed by Amitabh. The channel knows that this is what will give them a huge buzz. SRK is undecided. He has good relations with the channel as well as the makers of the show, so it is hugely being anticipated that he might give a nod for this special episode. Everyone has their fingers crossed.”

Meanwhile, on the conditions of anonymity, officials of the channel have confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan has been approached for KBC and they are eagerly waiting for his response.

‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ kicks off on Monday 11th October.
