The registrations for KBC began in May. The makers of show had shared a promo clip, with Bachchan encouraging people to be a part of the contest. He was seen asking people, who had failed in their first attempt, to give another try and stand a chance to come one step closer to the 'Hot Seat'.
Adapted from Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, KBC first premiered in July 2000 and has been reinventing itself with every season. Except for season 3, which was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan, all other seasons have been hosted by Bachchan.
Bachchan was last seen alongside Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in Thugs of Hindostan.
