Actor Amitabh Bachchan and others involved in the television quiz-show Kaun Banega Crorepati, have been accused of presenting the legal profession in a derogatory manner. In his complaint to a local court, advocate Nasir Ali has said lawyers have been ridiculed in the promos of the show’s upcoming season. And he has demanded that the makers be booked for defamation and under the Information Technology Act.

Bachchan has been named in the complaint since he is the show's host. The others include the KBC producer, Big Synergy Media Ltd, telecasting company Multi Screen Media Private Ltd, and sponsors Cadbury India limited and Idea Cellular Limited.

The court would hear the case on August 23.
