Actor Amitabh Bachchan said recently that he decided to host Kaun Banega Crorepati in 2000 as he wasn’t being offered any new movies.

A new promo shared by Sony Entertainment Television shows Amitabh Bachchan's daughter Shweta Bachchan asking him how he felt when the quiz show clocked 1,000 episodes. The episode has Shweta Bachchan and her daughter Navya Naveli Nanda as guests.

Bachchan says in his reply “Darasal, ikkis saal ho gaye hain. San 2000 mein iski shuruat hui thi. Aur uss samay humko pata nahi tha. Sab log keh rahe they ke aap film se television mein jaa rahe hain, bade parde se chhote parde par aa rahe hain, aapki image ko nuksaan hoga (It’s been 21 years. The show began in 2000. At that time, I’d no idea. People warned me against moving to the small screen saying it could affect my image)”

"Lekin humari apni kuch paristhitiyan aisi thi ke mujhe laga ke filmon mein kaam jo hai wohh mil nahi raha tha, lekin pehle broadcast ke baad jiss tarah ke reaction aane shuru hue, phir aisa laga ke puri duniya badal gayi hai (But I wasn’t getting any work (film offers) then. However, after the show premiered, the kind of reactions I got made me believe that the world changed for me)”.

As the audience cheered, he says: “Sabse achhi baat jo mujhe lagi woh yeh ki humare jitne bhi contestants aaye unse prati din, prati contestant se mujhe kuch na kuch seekhne ko mila (The best thing I found was that I could learn from every contestant that came on the show)”.

The video also shows an emotional Bachchan wipe away his tears.

Kaun Banega Crorepati marks 21 years this year and is currently in its 13th season. Bachchan has largely remained the show's mainstay except for one season that saw actor Shah Rukh Khan replace him.
