New Delhi: Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan wrapped up the shoot of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 14 and posted a few pictures and wrote about it on his blog. He wrote, “the last day of the show and the greetings from them that work so hard to make KBC what it is .. a farewell or a bye to be back hopefully next year again .. and the return gift from me .. a moment of DEEWAR .. and the emotions ..”
Big B also took to Twitter to bid farewell to this season of the show. He wrote, “T 4495 – .. and here endeth the Lesson .. Ek aur maha prayas samapt hone ja raha hai aur is aasha ke saath ki ek aur na kewal prapti hogi balki, nayi shuruat. (Another great attempt comes to an end with the hope of new beginnings).”
In another set of tweets, the actor wrote, “T 4497 – bye to one and the hope to be back again.
“T 4496 – another day another challenge .. life on its treadmill keeps moving ..”
KBC season 14 premiered on Sony Entertainment Channel in August and will conclude later this month.
Bachchan has hosted KBC since its inception in 2000, except for the third season in 2007, which was hosted by superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
Meanwhile, Big B surprised everyone when he referred to issues like “civil liberties” and “freedom of expression” at the at the inauguration of the 28th Kolkata International Film Festival.
He started the speech referring to the incidents of creating communal divides and imposing censorship of the-then British rulers during the pre-independence era. At a point of time, when the audience was wondering where the megastar was leading to, he suddenly raised the issue of how questions are still raised on civil liberties and freedom of expression.
“Even now, I am sure my colleagues on stage would agree that questions are being raised on civil liberties and freedom of expression,” he said.
Besides hosting the popular show, the veteran star had a busy 2022 as he featured in five films — ‘Jhund’, ‘Runway 34’, ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’, ‘Goodbye’ and ‘Uunchai’.
