The Friday episode of KBC 9 was a crowd-puller, with Abhishek Bachchan making a surprise entry on the show. Last night’s Kaun Banega Crorepati started with a roll over contestant Jayshree Jadhav, who was a teacher by profession. She’s a non-grant teacher and narrated the story how she struggled to get herself an education and how she was inspired to complete her studies after marriage. She works without being paid and through KBC’s platform, she urged the government to work for the benefit of non-grant teachers like her. The audience was enthralled by Abhishek Bachchan’s sudden entry on the show. In case you missed Friday’s KBC episode, here’s the written update for you.
Last night’s episode started with the rollover contestant Jayshree Jadhav, who is a teacher by profession. The woman shed light on the conditions of the rural education sector of Maharashtra. Jadhav played well and won Rs. 6,40,000 after exhausting all her lifelines. She decided to call it quits as a wrong answer could have brought her back to Rs. 3,20,000.
As per the new initiative launched by Kaun Banega Crorepati 9, Amitabh Bachchan invited his son Abhishek Bachchan on the show. The actor was welcomed on the show with a round of applause. It was a great sight to watch father-son duo sharing the stage. The things went a little different when Abhishek Bachchan proceeded towards the host seat and asked Big B to take the hot seat. There was a sort of role-reversal on KBC last night, though for a short span of time. Abhishek asked quite hilarious questions from Amitabh Bachchan which entertained the crowd.
But soon, Amitabh Bachchan took his usual seal. He invited his second guest, who was Anshu Gupta, an Indian social entrepreneur and the founder of Goonj Foundation. Goonj is a non-government organisation based in Delhi which undertakes disaster relief, humanitarian aid and community development in parts of 22 states across India. Abhishek and Anshu were the contestants for the second half of the show. Abhishek also told that Anshi was his close friend and an inspiration. The duo did really well in the quizzical. Anshu’s jodidaar was none other than his wife who helped him with the right answer.
There was a hilarious moment on the show when Abhishek Bachchan couldn’t answer a football-related question, despite the fact that the actor was himself a football patron. Amitabh Bachchan grilled his son for not knowing the answer, which was the most entertaining segment of the entire show. Twitterati erupted with reactions soon after that.
Abhishek Bachchan’s Kabaddi Team Pink Panthers was also present on the show to cheer the actor. Together, Abhishek and Anshu won Rs. 25,00,000. Due to lack of time, they had to stop the game right there. The winning amount was donated to charity account through fund transfer. Amitabh also promised that he will give away the clothes and things he gets from KBC 9 for charity purpose. His mindful thinking will definitely encourage the viewers to do the same. Charity doesn’t cost much but gives a lot in return.
Kaun Banega Crorepati is aired on Sony TV at 9 pm from Monday to Friday. For written updates of KBC 9, stay tuned with us.
