Bollywood’s heartbeat, Amitabh Bachchan hosts one of the most popular game show in India, called Kaun Banega Crorepati? (a rip off of who wants to be a millionaire?). Amitabh Bachchan KBC took an interesting turn! In his superior style that has led him to win the hearts of many, he asked a game show contestant a question related to Imran Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
The question was worth INDR10,000 and giving the correct answer would take the contestant further in the game. The question has an audio clue attached. In the audio clue of Amitabh Bachchan KBC, you can hear a man, speaking very highly of Imran Khan.
In the audio, the man describes Imran Khan’s struggles, his efforts in cricket and politics and his dedication to achieve his goals. The contestant and the audience heard the voice, eulogizing a sports star’s struggle, after getting into politics, spanned over decades only to become the Prime Minister. “He started from scrap, with one seat, and went on to become prime minister,” said the person.
Amitabh Bachchan KBC episode was entertaining and the the contestant was given four options after this, from which he has to pick, who was the audio clue about. The four options A, B, C and D included Muhammad Azharuddin, Kirti Azad, Imran Khan and Mansoor Ali Khan respectively.
Did the contestant correctly answer the question?
The right answer was selected by the contestant, which of course was Imran Khan. The contestant was handed a ten thousand rupee cheque for the correct answer. When asked about how he was sure of the answer, the contestant replied that Imran Khan was the only option amongst the four names of cricketers who had become the prime minister of his country. The contestant was quick to answer, despite not knowing whose audio that was or the context of it.
Guess whose audio was played as a clue!
The audio remarks were by Navjot Singh Sidhu, an Indian cricketer turned politician. Navjot Sidhu had also accepted Imran Khan’s invitation to his oath taking ceremony and visited Pakistan last month and got bashed by his countrymen for hugging our COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Navjot Sidhu and Imran Khan are close friends since their cricket glory days. It is also a well known act, that Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan and our very own Imran Khan are also old friends. Amitabh Bachchan has attended a fund raising event for Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in the past. At that event, Amitabh was all praises for Imran Khan’s devotion, commitment and obsession to serve humanity and bring about a positive change.
