“So jogging on to the set and the cheer and applause from the most loving audience as ever, and all else is forgotten .. they stand and they scream and they cheer and applaud despite my efforts to stop them and calm them down .. but no they continue and humble me beyond all .. then starts the process of the hair and the dress and the look for the camera on the chair .. a quick gratitude to the audience and ready to go,” he wrote with the photos of his guests Virender Sehwag, alongwith Dutee Chand and Hima Das. The sportspersons will be playing the game with Big B.

Amitabh also tweeted about the touch-up before the shoot, “Sanwar sanwar ke sanwaar diya hai chehre ke har ang ko, ab chor bhi do yaaro khel KBC ka ab.”
