On being asked if he thought he could survive as a contestant after hosting nine seasons of Kaun Banega Crorepati, Amitabh said, “I will lose if I become a contestant on #KBC10. I won’t be able to answer more than 2-3 questions.”
The actor also reacted to Salman Khan wanting to host Kaun Banega Crorepati. “He is welcome to do it,” Amitabh said.
He also mentioned how his granddaughter Aaradhya has been fond of the show’s background music. “She knows that there is a show called #KBC. She prefers the tune. I have not played with her but I should start,” he said.
The veteran actor also opened up about the actors in Bollywood industry today. He was all praise about the young talent. He said, “Actors like Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone are so capable that I am scared to work with them, they will eat me up. Look at the work by the likes of Ranbir Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Dhawan and even Kartik Aaryan have done.”
Talking about the Kerala relief fund, he said, “I was shocked by farmers’ suicides. Several years ago, when I was shooting in Vizag, I got to know that the farmers were taking their lives, not being able to pay off loans of some thousands. I got a list of around 50 families and paid off their loans. Recently also, through my bank, I got a list of 200 farmers and we have cleared their loans amounting to Rs 1.25 crore.” He revealed that he had helped the families of martyrs too. “I want to thank the CM’s office that helped us collate a list of 44 families. We have drafted 112 drafts of some crores towards them already,” he said. The actor has donated Rs 51 lakh and his personal belongings for Kerala relief effort.
