Kaun Banega Crorepati 13 Shaandaar Shukravaar: Pratik Gandhi Reveals, ‘I Was Told To Gain 18 Kgs For My Role In Scam 1992’
Opening a new chapter of acting and setting new benchmarks in the Bollywood industry are the very talented actors Pankaj Tripathi and Pratik Gandhi. Sony Entertainment Television’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 13 is all set to welcome them in this week’s Shaandaar Shukravaar episode. With their impeccable acting skills and down-to-earth attitude, they have won the audience's hearts, already. This Friday, watch these trend-setters play the game along with Amitabh Bachchan. Not only will they be seen putting their best foot forward but also share interesting stories of their B-Town experiences. Shedding light on his role in SonyLIV’s Scam 1992 series, Pratik Gandhi will be unravelling a secret. He will be seen sharing how he had to gain 18 kilos for his role in the most-talked-about web series of 2020.

In the show, Amitabh Bachchan will be seen asking Pratik Gandhi about his role in one of the most coveted series ‘Scam 1992’. Continuing about his role, he shares, “Sir, when it came to preparing for this role, the biggest aspect was that I had to gain a lot of weight. Firstly, I was told to gain 18 kgs because I was like this from the start and they wanted to see a particular body on camera. So, that was the biggest challenge. And, then to understand the financial world. I’m an engineer, come from a teaching family so, we never had anything to do with the financial world. I always say that we are an ‘FD’ family, one that has never done any business nor investments. It took a lot of time to understand this world and also because the entire script was written in such a way.”

When asked by Big B if a lot of time went for preparing for this role, Pratik Gandhi said, “Yes, Sir. We shot for about 90 days. 90 days in 9 months. It took one and a half years for preparation, Sir. Because this is a long format (series), it had 10 episodes.”


Bollywood stars Pankaj Tripathi and Pratik Gandhi will be seen playing the game for the social causes they support. The proceeds from the winning amount will be donated to Pandit Benaras Tiwari Hemanvanti Devi Foundation and Mukul Trust, respectively. Tune into Kaun Banega Crorepati’s Shaandaar Shukravaar this Friday, 1st October at 9 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television
