Big B encourages people to try luck on KBC 11

Mumbai– Amitabh Bachchan is encouraging common people to try their luck by participating in the upcoming season of the TV quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati-11.’

As the registration of the show starts from May 1, a promotional video released on social media by the channel Sony Entertainment Television shows how Bachchan is interacting with commoners: When a housewife who has tried to participate for seven years and failed decides to give up; Bachchan says, “Pehle hi haar manjayenge, to jitenge kaise? (if you give up in the beginning, how will you win?)”

Starting from the year 2000, the quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ has been gaining popularity every year. This is the first-ever TV show where a megastar like Bachchan appeared on small screen.

Last month Bachchan shared, “So prep for ‘KBC’ starts and here we are running into introductions, systems, learning new inputs, rehearsing, getting ready for another year.”

“It’s 2019 and it all began in 2000. 19 years and a gap of about two years when it did not happen for me. But 17 years is a lifetime and a lifetime that was given a lifeline by you,” he wrote on his blog.

The break was good for my craft: Aditya Roy Kapur

Mumbai– Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who is awaiting the release of “Kalank” and is gearing up for two more films, says a break of two years in his career has been good for him to approach his craft better.

“In ‘Kalank’, I am playing a character which is quite strong, quiet, a little complex, yet interesting. That drew me towards the character when I heard the narration from director Abhishek Verman.

“It required me to do something. I am the happiest when I am at a film set, so after two years when we started shooting, I was more than excited. That break in between was good for me because I had a fresh approach to my performance,” Aditya told IANS.

“As actors, when we keep working every day, after a point of time we just know all our emotional cards and how to play them. It becomes a little mechanical because we can combine only that much to bring variety.

“However, taking a break offered me new perspectives and perhaps that is why I am so excited now to work in films back-to-back,” added the actor, who rose to fame with “Aashiqui 2”.

Aditya’s acting talent and screen presence has always been appreciated, but that hasn’t necessarily translated at the box office with releases like “Daawat-e-Ishq”, “Fitoor” and “Ok Jaanu”.

Asked about how the business of cinema defines the longevity of an actor’s career in Bollywood, Aditya said: “Look, if there is an investment, profit will be counted because that is the rule of business in every industry.
