- Big B invited the contestant to connect with him on social media
- The contestant said she's never been on any social media platform
- "Bahut achha kiya," was Big B's response
Amitabh Bachchan, who makes each and every episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati exceedingly interesting, hosted a young contestant named Laboni Basu from North 24 Parganas in West Bengal on Monday's episode. Laboni Basu, who hails from a rather simple background, told Big B that she doesn't have a social media profile. Amitabh Bachchan, who was rather taken aback and impressed with Laboni's simplicity, wanted to confirm what he was hearing and asked her again: "Have you ever been on social media?" When Laboni answered in the negative, Big B heaved a sigh of relief and said: "Bahut achha kiya! (You did a good thing!") Next you know Mr Bachchan was inviting Laboni to connect with him on the Internet. Big B explained the procedure and said all she has to do is tag him on any social media platform and Laboni will be in direct touch with Amitabh Bachchan.
Big B also took a dig at trolls by revealing that he is constantly subjected to negative criticism on social media.
Meanwhile, Monday's episode was a mix of emotional moments and ROFL snippets. Big B got emotional as the contestant revealed she started working as early as 9 or 10 years old and that she used to tutor younger students to earn a living when in the 10th standard. On a lighter note, Big B ordered the managers to get shawls for Laboni, who visibly found the air-conditioning too cold.
