On Indian Television, if we have ever known a quiz show, it is undoubtedly Kaun Banega Crorepati. Moreover, Mr.Amitabh Bachchan made the show big.
Kaun Banega Crorepati first aired in 2000 and was hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, his first appearance on television. The show was well received from the very first season and did another 8 seasons among which, only the third season had a change of host, Shah Rukh Khan, while Big B hosted all the other 7 seasons. Reportedly, Kaun Banega Crorepati is all set to occupy the prime time slot on Star Plus as the makers of the show gear up for its ninth season.
