Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan commenced filming for the popular televised quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' (KBC) – the hugely popular Indian iteration of ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’.
Big B shared the first photos from the sets of 'KBC 16' this week and provided some insights, sharing that he had to “lunch in car” and did not have the luxury of traditional breaks. In his blog, Big B first shared a photo in which he can be seen in a casual outfit. Additionally, he also shared photos in which he features in a black suit.

"Non-stop schedule beginning at 9 and worked till 5 without the traditional break. Done it driven off, and lunched in car... that rolled appropriate eat and that consumption drink," he noted.

Earlier, Sony TV confirmed on social media with a promo that the much-loved quiz show is making a comeback due to popular demand. The promo starts with the emotional speech of Big B that he gave while wrapping up the last season.

When wrapping up KBC’s 15th season last year, Bachchan had said: “Ladies and gentleman, now it's time to go as the stage won't be the same. It's difficult to let everyone know that we won't be returning here from tomorrow).”

As this ends a voice can be heard in the new promo, saying, "Har aarambh ka ant taye hai magar apnon ke pyar mein jo anand hai… to har ant ke baad shubharambh nishchit hai…" [Every start has a finish but the love of viewers brings us back.] Big B later said, "Gunja jo aapke pyar ka shankhnaad, to aana padega fir" (If the sound of your love echoes, I will have to come again.)

It came as the makers of the show declared that registration for KBC’s 16th season is now open.

The 'Agnipath' and ‘Shahenshah’ star started hosting the quiz show in 2000, and since then he has been a constant part of the show except for one season. In 2006, Shah Rukh Khan had briefly replaced Big B as a host for the third season of the show.
