Big B to return to small screen


Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who reinvented his sagging career through a television game show, will return to the small screen very soon.

A recent newspaper report said that Bachchan was in talks with several television channels for a variety of shows, including soap operas and non-fiction.

“I plan to take up one or maybe even more of these offers very shortly,” he said.

Bachchan saw his film career plummet in the late-1990s and had business troubles in his

entertainment company. But he went on to host an Indian version of the famous TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, which became hugely popular and firmly established him

as a legend in India. Though Bachchan shot for the second part of KBC, he declined to

be part of KBC3 due to health reasons and has not featured in any other TV shows since.
