Amitabh Bachchan hosting more KBC next seasons: Little wonder then that he’s been roped in by Sony Entertainment Television to host two more seasons of the show.
“Sony and I have signed on for KBC for the next two seasons... your blessings and encouragement needed in abundance!” Amitabh posted on his Twitter page.
It was Amitabh who first launched the show in 2000. He returned as its host for the second season in 2005 but was replaced by Shahrukh Khan in the show’s third season, but the audience response wasn’t as phenomenal as expected.
Last year, Big B returned as the host and revived the show and took its TRPs beyond those of other prime time shows, including Bigg Boss 4.
Sony Entertainment has confirmed that Big B has been signed to host two more seasons of the show. The fifth season will go on air this year only.
