When Kaun Banega Crorepati first started airing in the year 2000, the whole nation turned towards the small screen at 9pm sharp--just to get a glimpse of the legend that is Amitabh Bachchan.

After the frenzy created by mythological dramas like Ramayana and Mahabharat, this was the first time that a show had become appointment viewing for the country.

That has been the kind of magic the Indian megastar managed to weave on television. But the show has had quite long breaks between seasons. The last season was aired in 2014, and we have missed the game show, and its inimitable host.

And now Bachchan will be back with a bang!
