Kaun Banega Crorepati stands for Amitabh Bachchan. There was a time on Indian television when Amitabh single-handedly defined the era of reality TV. To this day, the connection between Big B and viewers is intact. In today’s article, we’ll take a look at a lesser-known fact about Season 2 abruptly ended.
For those who are not in the know, the show started in 2000. With a unique concept targeting Indian audiences, the show was a huge success and such a success led to the second season. Surprisingly, it took manufacturers 4 years to come up with the second season.
In 2005, Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 2 was released. Unfortunately, he witnessed a blunder and the show ended abruptly. As expected, the series had 85 episodes scheduled. But it was Amitabh Bachchan’s deteriorating health that left manufacturers with no choice but to end the season. Big B had filmed for 61 episodes, so the show ended 24 episodes earlier.
Fortunately, this was the only time Kaun Banega Crorepati faced such a crisis. As of now, the show has successfully completed its 12 seasons and the 13th season will air very soon.
Outside of KBC, Big B has a bunch of exciting movies under its kitty. His Jhund with director Nagraj Manjule is set for release in June. His thriller, Chehre, starring Emraan Hashmi has been postponed and a new release date has yet to be announced. He also has Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. He’s working on Mayday with Ajay Devgn. In addition, he recently signed the Hindi remake of The Intern with Deepika Padukone.
