Amitabh, Abhishek signed TV deals on same day
But Colors avoided 'Bigg Boss' and 'Bingo' clash
If you think Abhishek Bachchan is following in father Amitabh's footsteps by doing TV show "Bingo", months after Big B hosted reality show "Bigg Boss", think again. The father-son duo actually signed the deals on the same day.
"We both signed on 'Bigg Boss' and 'Bingo' on the same day. At the start of last year when Colors (channel) spoke to us, we actually signed the contracts on the same day but they did not want 'Bigg Boss' and 'Bingo' to clash," Abhishek told reporters in New.
"They first wanted to air 'Bigg Boss' and then 'Bingo'," added the 33-year-old who was in the capital to promote his TV debut "National Bingo Night".
Bachchan senior had struck gold with his TV debut as the host for the first two seasons of quiz show "Kaun Banega Crorepati". He followed it up as a pop philosopher for "Bigg Boss 3".
