The contestants on hot seat often say that to be seated opposite Mr Bachchan is 'surreal' and 'astounding' - as Mithali Raj, captain of the Indian women's cricket team, who featured with her team in last Friday's episode had told news agency IANS. But what about Big B's version of events while hosting the game show? The 74-year-old actor wrote on his official blog: "Anchoring impromptu episodes is a great strain on nerve and bearing. Not a strain in the sense of tiredness, but one that involves a changing scenario each day and age."
Kaun Banega Crorepati has been hosted by Amitabh Bachchan since its inception in 2000 - the only exception was season 3, which was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan.
