Amitabh Bachchan is back with Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11 and like always, his magnetic presence keeps the viewers glued to the screen. In yesterday’s episode, Big B shared some light moments with a contestant who’s into the business of making threads.
Pulling his leg over his hurried speech, Big B tells him that he can’t follow what he’s saying as he speaks too fast. The megastar then adds his brain is very sharp and asks him to give some tips for making sharpening his brain.
When Amitabh asks him if eating akhrot (walnut) makes one’s brain sharp, the contestant says–thokar khaane se dimaag badhta hai.

Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan revealed that his arrival on TV, as the first superstar to host a show, was more coincidental than intentional. “It was just a coincidence. The channel came about with this idea. Circumstances were such that everyone felt I should not go there (on TV) especially people from my home but I just felt that this was something new,” Bachchan told reporters.
Imagine what could have been if Big B had turned down the opportunity to host KBC.
