If you thought you would never get a chance to see Amitabh Bachchan in the hot seat, well, in the October 20 episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati, you will not only get to see him in that dreaded seat but also watch Shah Rukh Khan giving him a friendly massage. Yes, you read that right.
Jog your memory cells and you will remember how SRK would give massages to anxious contestants during his stint as host of the third season of KBC on Star Plus. Well, he will give the same treatment to the Big B, all in good humour of course.Recently there was news of Bachchan dubbing for a scene for Khan's ambitious and overcrowded Diwali release, Ra.One, and it was SRK's turn to return the favour as he reached the sets of KBC to shoot a festival special episode. It was, to use a cliché, the clash of the titans as the two 'hosts' sat aamne saamne bringing the floor down with their quick wit and repartee.
A fly on the sets tells us that the episode was a laugh riot and indeed this season's best episode as Bachchan graciously offered his host's seat to Khan while he took the hot seat. Khan even asked him a question 'What is the colour of an octopus' blood?' Well, Bachchan didn't answer the question as it was all in good fun and it was a random question with no monetary value attached to it. He went back to his seat while SRK played on to win 50 lakhs which he promptly donated to the Nanavati cancer ward.
Well, this one's going to be a helluva episode all set to be aired a few days from now. Meanwhile, the tentative news is that the season comes to a close on November 17.
