Imagine Kaun Banega Crorepati without Amitabh Bachchan, yeah I know you’re thinking about the time when Shah Rukh Khan hosted the show. And now again, the makers of KBC are already looking forward for a replacement and to our surprise, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit are in contention for the hot seat!
Kaun Banega Crorepati has gained reputation and huge fan-base over its eight seasons and not the ninth season is expected to hit the silver screens after 2014. But hey hello, expect some major changes, because the host will be replaced by a new female host. And Bachchan’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai as well as actress Madhuri Dixit have been approached for the show! The delicate girl of Bollywood might become the quiz master for season 9 of KBC. In case if Aishwarya gives it a not, it will be her debut on the small screen.
The audience is used to Amitabh Bachchan’s hosting and his heavy-toned tone creates a kind of perfect atmosphere for the mega-quiz and his witty commentary and the iconic way of calling the computer – ‘Computer ji’, is this all replaceable? Is the new twist a good idea? Well, we don’t know either.
According to the makers, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, being an international icon will grab attention of the masses greatly and can prove to be an amazing host. And, it will be a great pleasure for the channel producers if she agrees to play the host of the show KBC. On the other end, they are also opting for Madhuri Dixit as the host of show as they believe that she too has the potential to win hearts of millions with her strong screen ever-presence in shows like Kahi Na Kahi Koi Hai, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Kahi Na Kahi Koi Hai.
Since we are used to Bachchan’s booming voice asking everyone to play fastest fingers first so that the luck one can take the hot seat and win money and we don’t know how effectual it will be but it is probably worth a shot.
