One advantage of having Bollywood's reigning superstar Shah Rukh Khan as the host on STAR Plus' popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is he can convince all his buddies to come to the hot seat.
After the star-studded Valentine's Day special, Shah Rukh has just recorded yet another special episode for KBC. This time it's for spring festival of Holi, featuring his two co-stars Preity Zinta and Rani Mukerji.
The episode went off like a charm.
A source from the set told IANS: "There were rumours about a fallout between Preity and Rani who were once best friends. But Shah Rukh has a special knack of making all his heroines feel special."
"Earlier this week on Koffee With Karan Shah Rukh actually made Kajol and her cousin Rani - who self-admittedly don't socialise together - sit together on one sofa and be civil to each other. Now on KBC, Preity and Rani got along like a house on fire."
Though the exact prize money won by the two leading ladies is not known, the sources said they won close to Rs.50 lakhs together.
