Amitabh Bachchan has been winning the hearts of his audience with his spectacular performance in hosting the quiz-based show, Kaun Banega Crorepati. The show, which aired for the first time in the year 2000, has been loved by television viewers, who love the interesting challenges of the show, as well as the frequent trivia that Big B often shares while chatting with the contestants. Something similar happened yet again, as Amitabh Bachchan shared another interesting anecdote from his memories.
In the recent episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, Amitabh Bachchan, while interacting with a contestant on the hot seat, delved onto the topic of makeup, in particular reference to women. The actor, who worked with Waheeda in a number of films such as Kabhie Kabhi, Reshma Aur Shera, Namak Halal among others, shared how the former used to carry a small compact case of makeup during the shooting of her films. Moreover, he also took a dig at some other actors whom he has seen in his film career, who require four people just to hold a mirror in front of them before going for a shot. In his words:
“Waheeda ji has her favourite compact that she uses to do all her makeup. She keeps that little compact with her all the time. There are many such actors who keep four people just to hold their mirror because they always want a full-size mirror before going for the shot, they need to see everything, makeup, outfit, and all are perfect.”
In one of his the previous episodes of KBC 15, Big B had spoken about his own crew members, and credited them duly for making him presentable on-screen. Moreover, he also fondly spoke about his one and only makeup artist, Deepak Sawant, who has been with him for 40 years and has been responsible for dressing him up in the most versatile of looks.
In another earlier episode of the show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, Big B asked the contestant, Abhishek Garg the 12th question, which was about Piyush Mishra's band, Ballimaaraan. While the former gave a correct answer, Amitabh took the opportunity to share a fond memory of the particular word, which was used in the song, Kajra Re, that featured him along with his beta-bahu, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. Big B had revealed:
“Usmein hum teeno the tab humari bahu nahi thi ab ban gayi hai, bahu thi Abhishek the aur hum the... uss gaane mein bol the."
Back on August 31, 2023, Amitabh Bachchan had taken to his blog and opened up about the topic of his unbeatable energy, which he showcases during the show, Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 15. He discussed how people are left in awe of his energy and often ask him about the same. Sharing his view on the same, he mentioned:
“Yes I run onto the set of KBC .. the audience asks me why I do so .. I say I feel like doing it so I do .. they tell me we need to know the secret of your energy .. I tell them I have no secret, I was born thus, and if you need to know you shall have to ask them that created me .. and they have left for the Heavens, so how do I ask them .. they tell me we wish you to live another 500 years .. I smile .. they say yes we do .. I still smile .. they say we would never want you to change, may you remain this way all your life .. I continue to smile…”
