Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently busy with the shoot of Gulabo Sitabo in Lucknow, was recently unable to return to Mumbai to shoot for the promo of the 11th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati. As Amit Ji was unable to fly down to Mumbai in the middle of the schedule, the makers of Kaun Banega Crorepati headed to Lucknow to shoot the final promo with him. The teaser was helmed by Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari and will air on July 6, before the 11th season kicks off in August.
A source revealed, "The initial plan was to shoot the promo at Film City. But when the channel and the producers realised that Big B could not take time off from the Lucknow leg, they decided to take the first available flight to the city. The promo was shot on Monday. It is a light-hearted concept that sees Bachchan share the frame with a Lucknow-based contestant and several locals."
Amit Ji juggled between his film commitment and the promo shoot with ease. "He shot for the film's sequences in the morning, after which he reported to the show's set."
"Though he will be wearing classic striped and checkered suits, the superstar will experiment with his ties. He will be seen sporting the triple knotted looks, which include the Eldredge, trinity and the cape knot." The channel officials chose to not comment on the Lucknow shoot, but a source close to them confirmed the news.
