Amitabh Bachchan-hosted popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ has been making headlines for all the right reasons. In the latest episode, we saw Big B at his witty best as he introduced episode’s expert and ace filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. The director also extended birthday wishes to Amitabh and expressed how nervous she was talking to him. The veteran actor left everyone stunned after he called Ashwini the ‘malkin’.
The 79-year-old superstar revealed that he addressed Ashwiny Tiwari as malkin because she takes full control when she arrives on the set. He also jokingly mentioned how Tiwari is the ‘malkin 2’ while number one is someone else. Amitabh added that it’s better not to talk about Malkin number one right now.
The episode also honoured the host and megastar on the occasion of his 79th birthday yesterday. Ashwiny dedicated a video celebrating Amitabh Bachchan's amazing journey in the industry. The celebrations also included an encore of the song 'Happy Birthday', sung by everyone present on the set.
Speaking about Big B, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari said in a statement, “His energy is infectious. His love for his craft to keep evolving even makes us wish that we imbibe these qualities. He does little things that make us appreciate the value of relationships. He is a simple inspiring man at heart. To remember faces, make young artists whether they are filmmakers, music directors or writers a part of his life and work with them and to believe in their craft and think like a child even today, laughing and smiling and treating everyone with immense respect and listening to everyone as if they are his own is what makes him who he is.”
Ashwiny's husband and filmmaker Nitish Tiwari has produced a campaign for the popular game show every season for the last 11 years. For this new season, he made a short film' Sammaan' as its brand video, which was released in three parts.
