Director Arun Sheshkumar may not be a household name but he is a familiar name in the tv industry. Arun has previously helmed shows such as Satyamev Jayate and Dus Ka Dum and is all set to offer a new season of the very popular Kaun Banega Crorepati.

India’s version of ‘Who wants to be a millionaire,’ is synonymous with two things – host Amitabh Bachchan and his trusty Computer-ji. The popular quiz show is all set to make a comeback for its 11th season and give people the chance to earn up to Rs. 7 crores! Ahead of the new chapter in the long illustrious history of KBC, Arun has spilled some beans about what’s in store for fans of the show.

He said “The latest addition to the KBC set is a buggy camera. It has become Bachchan’s favourite toy as it follows him around. This is the first time that such a camera is being used on a reality show. It has been used in IPL matches earlier.”

“Every year, Mr Bachchan becomes younger. He becomes like a kid on set. He tells us, ‘Chalo, aaj kya naya karna hai?’ He enjoys the process as the kid in him is very much alive.”

“For us, it becomes more challenging to bring in the novelty. He treats himself as part of the show, and not as a superstar. There is no one on the set who can say that Mr Bachchan did not wave out to him.”

He praised the veteran actor saying, “His energy is more than what it was during season one,” and also revealed that 2 episodes are shot in a day and each is completed in 3 hours.

Season 11 of Kaun Banega Crorepati will air from 19 August, and make sure you don’t miss out on all the fun.
