If you think you have to just revisit the old stuff all over again during this lockdown phase, then you’re wrong. For all those, who are bored with watching old TV shows and want to watch something brand new then this one is for you. Reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati is back with its 12th season and the fresh promo has already been shot by Amitabh Bachchan amid the lockdown. Well, before you start using your brain thinking that Big B broke the social distancing advisory, then let us tell you, he shot for the KBC promo by himself at his home, Jalsa. The promo has been shot under Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari’s direction.
Taking to social media, Big B reposted the KBC 12 promo and wrote alongside, “We are coming back ..!!! Repost @sonytvofficial Har cheez ko break lag sakta hai par sapnon ko break nahee lag sakta hai. Aapke sapnon ko udaan dene phir aa rahe hain @amitabhbachchan lekar #KBC12. Registrations shuru honge 9 May raat 9 baje se sirf Sony TV par.”
Nitesh Tiwari in his latest interview with Pinkvilla spoke about directing Big B for the in-house promo. He told the entertainment portal, "Honestly, this is the first time I have done something like this. What happens is it is good to know what the situation is because then as a writer you can write responsibly. Given the limitations, we consciously wrote a script that was simple to shoot. So, half of the job was done at the script level.”
“Having said that, it is still a challenging task to direct an actor of Amitabh Bachchan's stature sitting at home. But what made it easy for us is the sheer enthusiasm that Mr. Bachchan shows. He also loves challenges. His enthusiasm is still childhood. So, he was very happy to do it and call and know what exactly needs to be done,” he added further.
