What Mr. Amitabh Bachchan about KBCSony Game that is mentioned above nice to read, it is officially said in “110 Crore Hindustani Kaun Banega Crorepati, the Official Book”
EK Chidiya Chonch Mein Tinko Liye Jo Jaa Rah’ Thi, Woh Saha.; Mein Hi Pawan Unchaas Ko Neecha Dikhati
These lines penned by my father reiterate the spirit of the human nature. Kaun Banega Crorepati is not about the questions. It is not about the fame on national television and it is most definitely not about the money. The show is about fair play, sportsmanship and the people. People who have defied all odds to be on the show, are self-assured and determined to emerge as winners. They are convinced and will not let anybody make them believe otherwise.
Contestants I meet on the show come from varied backgrounds and it is most humbling to interact with them and listen to their stories. Some of these people inspire me in ways I wouldn’t think possible. Over the last forty decades I have grown only because of the love of these people and it feels good to be on the show among st them, to talk to them and to laugh with them.
I love being the messenger of good fortune every time they win.
If being a contestant and winning a crore is tough, then being the one who has to break that dream is definitely tougher. How does one muster enough courage to shatter hopes? And to tell a contestant that he has earned from the last ten levels but one wrong move and he has come crashing down, and that he hasn’t played well enough to go ahead to the next round.
The world of questions is fascinating. The more questions I ask, the more it makes me realise how little we know and how important it is to travel, question, ponder and keep our minds open.
For me, Kaun Banega Crorepati has been a learning experience. The teams at Synergy and Sony remind me that you do not always have to be the lead player to steal the show. The contestants I have met and the stories I have heard remind me always that everything we face in life only helps us build character and that most problems are only situations.
And that if it is too difficult to laugh at these situations, there indeed is a problem. Here’s looking forward to many more fascinating years of answers. And like I keep saying ‘koi bhi sawaal chhota nahin hota’.
