Amitabh ‘sweeps’ away Preity on KBC

Mumbai: “Kaun Banega Crorepati” has taken the kind of TRP-sweeping opening that TV channels only dream about. And guess who had the chance to sit on the hot seat in front of host Amitabh Bachchan — Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan. “It’s, in one word, awesome!” says Preity, who’ll appear on a special edition of ‘KBC’ along with Saif. They are the first two celebrities on the hot seats for this season’s ‘KBC.’ The stars of Yashraj Films’ ‘Salaam Namaste’ will be seen together in the middle of August. Says Preity excitedly: “He looks so cool, and just sweeps you away. Just Bachchan being on the show makes it worth it. Of course I was nervous. “But having worked with and been on ‘KBC’ earlier, I guess I had an edge over Saif. What I also liked about the ‘KBC’ experience this time was my partner. Saif is such a fun person. Just doing a fun thing with him is so much more fun.” The news is that again this time there are going to be a number of celebrities on the hot seat. During the last innings of ‘KBC,’ the super-celebrities who appeared on the show included Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Sonali Bendre and Preity Zinta. This time the ball has already been set rolling with Saif and Preity.
