Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor might soon take a place on the Kaun Banega Crorepati hot seat, not as a celebrity contestant but as the host. According to media reports, Ranbir is in talks to host the hit game show, taking the reins from superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

Kaun Banega Crorepati is modelled on the lines of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? where contestants aim to win prize money (Rs 5 crore for KBC) by answering a series of multiple choice questions.

Ranbir is also currently busy with his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos with Katrina Kaif. It releases in April.
