Big B steals the limelight in Bingo
The senior Bachchan, who proved himself as a superb host on game show Kaun Banega Crorepati almost a decade ago, kept the audience engrossed with his famous dialogues from films like Zanjeer, Agneepath, Deewaar and Amar Akbar Anthony et al, as well as performing the Auro dance from Paa, while son Abhishek stood in awe of him.
Just a few hours before the episode began on Saturday at 9 pm, Abhishek said that he was extremely nervous about his small screen debut and he did look nervous on the show too.
"Want to run away and hide!!! Bingo in a few hours! Aaaarrrrrgggghhhh. This is worse than the release of a film. Anyway, let's see what destiny has in store today," the actor posted on his Twitter page.
Though Abhishek made a roaring start with a short performance on songs like Right here right now and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, shook a leg with the studio audience, hugged an old man and danced with old ladies - he couldn't hold the attention for long enough.
National Bingo Night is a 13-episode show, to be aired every Saturday. It will have celebrities as well as common people playing two fast-paced rounds of the popular game Bingo. Celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Deepika Padukone, Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi and Kirron Kher will be seen in the subsequent episodes of the show.
Given the cold feet that most actors develop while sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek's real test on the small screen will be when he plays the game with the common man.
