Amitabh Bachchan was left stunned on Monday night when a KBC contestant told him that he was born in a moving auto-rickshaw. Shailesh Bansal, who hails from Jaipur and now working in Haryana’s Gurgaon, told Bachchan during the latest episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, “When I was born, my father was away on a business trip. They took my mother in an auto-rickshaw after her labour pain started. While on the way, I could not wait and was born in the auto itself.”
His revelation left Amitabh Bachchan stunned as he reacted in disbelief. Addressing the contestant’s mother, Bachchan said, “You are very brave indeed.” He then told the contestant, “I don’t understand this. I’ve read about women giving birth to children wherever they are since they are not able to reach hospitals in time. Sometimes, I have heard a baby being delivered inside a plane. But your case is extraordinary. I’m hearing for the first time that babies are born in auto too. You were indeed in a big hurry to come to this world.”
The Monday night’s episode saw plenty of lighter moments between the contestant and the KBC host. At one point, Bansal informed that he was a big fan of Hindi movies and regularly watched Bachchan’s films. He, however, said that his wife did not like her husband spend too much time watching films. “I am good in your eyes, but my families don’t like the fact I spend too much time watching films,” the contestant from Jaipur told Bachchan.
To which, the Bollywood megastar requested his family members to not stop him from watching his films adding that this helped him earn his ‘livelihood.’
Bansal’s mother Sushila Bansal and wife Ankruti Agrawal too had accompanied Bansal to the show. His wife said that Bansal was very concerned about his wife and family came first to him.
Bansal told Bachchan that his was an arranged marriage and his parents had found the match for him. Apologising in advance for a personal question, Bachchan asked, “who is more romantic between you two?” The contestant asked, “Inside the house or outside?” This caused quite a laughter among the audience.
Bansal said that he was shy expressing his affection for his wife outside, but he was like any other man inside the house.
