Kaun Banega Crorepati 13: Amitabh Bachchan Refuses To Drop ‘Ji’ While Addressing A Contestant, Wins Audience’s Heart
With each episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, the audience and contestants on the hot seat get to know a little more about the host of the show, megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Known for this stupendous work on the celluloid, the star’s chivalry often grabs attention. On the latest episode, contestant Kumar Saurav made a request to Mr Bachchan and his reply once again won the hearts of the audience.

Amitabh Bachchan is often seen adding ‘ji’ as a suffix to the name of the contestants. Hence, like always, he addressed Kumar Saurav on the hot seat as ‘Kumar Saurav ji’. At this, the contestant requested the star to not use ‘ji’ and just call him Saurav. The contestant clarified why he doesn’t want Amitabh Bachchan to address him as Kumar Saurav ji. He said that not because it is Amitabh Bachchan but the superstar is way older than him. But unlike many times, where Big B fulfils the contestant’s request, this one he chose not to. Big B refused to let off the ‘ji’ while addressing the contestant, and added that he will not neglect the values inculcated in him by his parents.

This moment in the episode was simply a heart-winning one.


On the show, Mr Bachchan often recalls the time he spent with his parents. A few days ago in one of the episodes, Big B had revealed how his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan chose this particular surname as it did not specify any caste.

Work-wise, Amitabh Bachchan has Jhund, Brahmastra, May Day, Goodbye and more in the pipeline. ALSO READ: Kaun Banega Crorepati 13: Amitabh Bachchan Has A Hilarious Reaction To A Contestant And His Wife, Who Go On Complaining About Each Other
