After a brief hiatus veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan is all set to return to television screens with his much loved and popular quiz show, Kaun Banega Crorepati. The show will air its eleventh season this year and has always managed to win audiences and rank high among other television shows. The registrations for the show began in May and if you are waiting for the show to premiere, well, we have some news for you. According to sources, Big B is all set to commence shooting for the show which is scheduled to go on air next month.
As per a source, "Amitabh Bachchan will begin shooting for the show from August 1. The contestants for the show are currently being locked. Given that the channel will be launching another show before KBC, they are yet to fix the premiere date but mostly it will go on air in the third week of August, 19th August. Final discussion on the same is ongoing though."

While there’s not long to go for the show to air, it will be interesting to see if Bigg Boss 13 will clash with Kaun Banega Crorepati. Last time the clash was averted as Bigg Boss 12 aired post 10pm.
In other news, Amitabh Bachchan is all set to appear on our screens in his next film Gulabo Sitabo. Just last month, a leaked picture of the Sholay actor for the Shoojit Sircar directorial surfaced on social media. Fans went into frenzy as Amitabh is completely unrecognisable in his latest avatar.
The 76-year-old actor, who is shooting for the film in Lucknow, plays the role of a landlord in the film. Other than Amitabh Bachchan, Gulabo Sitabo also stars Ayushmann Khurrana in a pivotal role. The film is slated for release in April 2020. We can’t wait for this one.
