Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan
has tweeted the first look of the fifth season of hit quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati
on Sony Entertainment Television in August.
The 68-year-old actor shot for the first promo for the season with photographer Avinash Gowariker, brother of ace filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker.
The show returned for its second season in 2005 with Amitabh, but superstar Shah Rukh Khan
was roped in as the host of its third season on Star Plus.
Sony Entertainment Television brought back the show with Amitabh in 2010, and it repeated its success story. The channel signed up the actor for the next two seasons in January.
"Sony and I have signed on for KBC
for the next two seasons... your blessings and encouragement needed in abundance!' Amitabh had posted after signing the deal.
Kaun Banega Crorepati
is the Indian version of internationally popular show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
