On the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, Kaun Banega Crorepati 14’s August 31 episode got things started in a festive manner. Amitabh Bachchan, the host, arrived on stage dressed in a traditional pink suit. Anil Mathur won the game’s first round, which was the fastest finger round. He is a Kanpur-born assistant teacher. Just 10,000 rupees were his earnings. Big B also thought about his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan and the reasons he didn’t become a poet like him during the episode.
Anil Mathur questioned Big B about if he shared his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s talent for poetry writing throughout the episode. I don’t compose poetry, Big B said in response. My father was a poet at home. My mother was questioned about why I didn’t become a poet when I was growing up and beginning to work. ‘Ghar me ek kavi kaafi hai,’ my mum added.
KBC 14 debuted on August 7th, a Sunday. In the first episode, Big B welcomed notable celebrities who took the hot seat and participated in the game. Aamir Khan, sports legends Mary Kom and Sunil Chhetri, Major DP Singh, India’s first Blade Runner, and Mithali Madhumita, the first female officer to get the Gallantry Award were among those who appeared on the show as special guests.
