Daily soaps replace KBC as it airs its last episode
India's favourite television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted successfully by the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan went off air on November 26. The show premiered in 2000, aired 781 episodes on Sony TV. Big B hosted nine seasons, of which season three was hosted by the Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan. KBC had Karamvir Ravi Kalra, the founder of Earth Saviour Foundation and television star Kapil Sharma as the last two contestants of its final season.
"I have been counting down the days to the finale. And at the end of this season, I am faced with a question that needs to be answered, ‘What will you do when the clock strikes 9 pm from tomorrow?' I always smile and say that I will get some rest or do something else. But honestly, I really don't know what I'm going to do. The truth is that I am used to coming here at 9 pm every day. From tomorrow, not only will this set be empty, my heart will be too." said the Sholay star at the end of the show.
He also said, "I cherish the moments spent with all the contestants because it is through them I have experienced India. Yes, it hurts and it is not easy when something comes to its end. But, all the precious times and moments spent has become memories now.'' The game show is usually aired at 9 pm from Monday to Friday, which has been now replaced by two new daily soaps - Patiala Babes starring Paridhi Sharma and Ashnoor Kaur and Ladies special with four women protagonists.
