The new season of Kaun Banega Crorepati is turning out to be quite interesting with host Amitabh Bachchan sharing his personal anecdotes with his contestants. On Wednesday night, Bachchan left his audience awestruck by revealing for the first time how he had a crush on a girl during his college days in Delhi.
Recalling an incident from his college days, Bachchan said that he would often take a bus to travel to college. The Bollywood megastar said that he would desperately wait for Connaught Place to come since a ‘beautiful girl’ would board the bus here. Bachchan revealed that he had fallen for her since she was extremely beautiful but he could never muster the courage to express his feelings to her.
Speaking to a contestant from the Indian Air Force, Bachchan said, “I used to catch the university special bus from near Teenmurti. The bus would cross Connaught Place. I used to desperately wait for Connaught Place to come since many beautiful girls going to Miranda House would board the bus here. We would discuss among ourselves that see this girl would get into the bus on this day.”
Many years later, when he had graduated from college and started working, he bumped into the same girl. Much to his surprise, the girl revealed that she too desperately waited for the bus to arrive at Connaught Place hoping that Bachchan will be inside the bus. She also told Bachchan that she would be accompanied by a male friend but she always told her male friend, named Pran, that she would sacrifice him for Bachchan.
The story drew a loud round of applause from the audience, who found his story quite cute.
This week saw two contestants reach the question for Rs 1 crore. Himanshu Dhuria from Raebareli had squandered his chance to win Rs 1 crore despite knowing the correct answer. But a contestant from Bihar will tonight be seen correctly answering the question for Rs 1 crore. It’s not clear whether the contestant from Bihar will finally be able to play for Rs 7 crore.
