Arbaaz Khan Takes Sharp Dig At Shah Rukh’s Stint On Kaun Banega Crorepati And Why The Show Did Not Work; Says ‘People Must Have Found Him Fake’
Shah Rukh Khan hosted the third season of the popular game show, and the season saw a steep decline in the ratings in the absence of Amitabh Bachchan
Arbaaz Khan has made a sharp remark about Shah Rukh Khan’s stint on the quiz-based television reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati and said that the superstar could not bring “niceness and naturalism” to the small screen. The actor even pointed out that SRK failed to do the show that megastar Amitabh Bachchan had managed to successfully pull off.
For those unaware, Shah Rukh Khan hosted the third season of the popular game show, and the season saw a steep decline in the ratings in the absence of Bachchan.
In a recent interview with Free Press Journal, Arbaaz was quizzed about his latest chat show and if he has reinvited himself as a talk show host.
The actor replied, “I feel, the kind of conversationalist I am, it comes by default and very naturally to me. People might have thought I am quite affable and natural as a host. My film image was way different since people couldn’t see my personal side while I played characters. How Salman Khan bounced back with Dus Ka Dum and Mr Amitabh Bachchan with Kaun Banega Crorepati, even their film careers revived post these television reality shows. It’s only about the demeanours. Shah Rukh Khan couldn’t pull it off.”
When asked what he meant about Shah Rukh Khan, the actor explained, that one cannot be ‘fake’ on TV, and Amitabh Bachchan has excelled at the same and Shah Rukh Khan couldn’t do the same.
“I think he couldn’t bring niceness and naturalism to the small screen. People must have found him fake. There were two people. At the end of the day, you can’t be fake in front of television or you have to be very smart like Amitabh Bachchan. He knows his audience but Shah Rukh Khan couldn’t do it,” he added.
BigB returned to host KBC from season 4 and has continued to rule the sets ever since. He has become the face of the popular game show. The latest season - KBC 14 aired last year on Sony TV.
