“Kaun Banega Crorepathi” the Indian version of “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” is now taking a new face yet again. The host for the new season 4 is again the irreplaceable Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. I’m a little disappointed that the series did not flow with the Big B all the way… we had SRK mid way for season 3. He was good in his own respects, but… by the time ALL people got adjusted, the TRP’s had already taken a tumble and the show wasn’t going anywhere either.

It’s so hard to believe this series of coincidences when it comes to the Big B and Sharukh Khan. SRK is the new Don and took Big B’s place in Season 3 of KBC too. Reports also say that SRK was approached to be the host of Big Boss (Indian version of Big Brother) but has rejected it, since he has confirmed shooting dates for Don 2 (sequel to Don)! Wo!! What a connection of stories! Also rumours say, that Aamir Khan was approached for the new season 4 of KBC, but he rejected the proposal. I’m not sure if it’s right to say that the producers had to “settle” for Amithabh Bachchan, but personally, I believe he’s undoubtedly the best… at least for this show! Do you think we will have SRK’s thinking cap again? and will it remain “Freeze kiya jaay?” or will it be the return of “Lock Kiya jaay?” And I wonder if and what new rules are brought to the show…

With the recent launch of the new rupee symbol, KBC has changed its logo and has incorporated the Rupee Symbol. Check out the old and new logos above and tell me what you think. If you can remember KBC season 1 which was a Indian TV revolution then, that came as a huge relief amidst the boom of Hindi Soaps, won’t be anywhere close again. While we’re in the age of “reality shows”, we have to appreciate a show with such elegance, class, hosting, prize money and the ONLY noticeable show to keep Quizzing alive on TV, here in India. So will you be glued to KBC again? Yes or No? Phone a friend? :P
