Amitabh Bachchan made his television debut in 2000 with Kaun Banega Crorepati. Thirteen seasons later, the quiz show remains popular among people of all age groups. Now, as Kaun Banega Crorepati completed 1000 episodes, family members of Mr Bachchan were called to play the game. Shweta Bachchan Nanda and granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda were on the Hot Seat this time as the megastar donned the hat of a quizmaster.
Mr Bachchan penned a blog after shooting for the special episode with his daughter and granddaughter. He wrote, "The 1000th episode on the platform of Kaun Banega Crorepati, was given its due importance and the request by the Channel to bring in the family on that revered and feared Hot Seat, was accepted. And there we were, as per the pictures in the previous. A delight, to be able to, not just test the ability of the ‘contestants’, but to give the freedom to express what many have felt has been undisclosed and kept behind closed doors. The banter of the family dining table, the repartee, and most importantly the several causes that the young at this age think about and work for. An evening of great pride for the Father and Grandfather - for Papa and Nana!"
Navya will be making her first television appearance with her mother Shweta. The granddaughter of Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan is an entrepreneur and has no plans to enter the film industry. She is one of the most popular star kids on social media.
