Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit in contention to host ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’

kaun-banega-crorepati:The general knowledge-based game-show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is expected to be back on air in the next two months after its eighth season in 2014. But Mirror has learnt that one of the major changes it is set to undergo is a replacement for Amitabh Bachchan. Both Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit have been approached to take over as the new host.

kaun-banega-crorepati:A source from the channel said, “Mr Bachchan’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya is among those who has been approached to take over as quiz master for season nine. The channel is in talks with both Madhuri and Aishwarya.” Bachchan’s tenure as host had been interrupted when Shah Rukh Khan took over in season three. In all these years, ‘KBC’ has never been hosted by a female celebrity and the channel is considering Aishwarya and Madhuri because they want to bring some novelty to the familiar format.
We reached out to both Aishwaya and Madhuri’s spokespersons but they chose not to comment.

Season 1: 2000-2001[edit]

kaun-banega-crorepati:KBC first aired in 2000 and was hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, his first appearance on Indian television. KBC initially offered contestants the chance to win up to ten million rupees, but doubled this in 2001 to two crore rupees, further adjusted from the fourth season to include a jackpot of 50 million rupees. The season ended in 2001. The show was well received from the very first season.[2]

It also aired on SABC 1, at 21h00, from 11 February 2020.

Season 2: 2005-2006[edit]

On 5 August 2005, the show was restarted after a four-year hiatus, and renamed Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya (Kaun Banega Crorepati the Second, or KBC 2) in which the final prize amount was doubled to 2 crore rupees. It was abruptly ended by STAR Plus after Amitabh Bachchan fell ill in 2006.[3]

Season 3: 2007[edit]

kaun-banega-crorepati:Star Television recruited Shahrukh Khan to host the third season of the show. The grand prize remained 2 crore rupees (approx. US$300,000). The third season of the show began airing on 22 January 2007. However, the show’s ratings dropped significantly.[4] The season ended on 19 April 2007 with a special finale.
