Indian superstar Amitabh Bachchan is back with the 13th season of India’s most loved game show- Kaun Banega Crorepati, which has begun on a high. Former Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Sourav Ganguly are the first celebrity guests of the new season and will be taking up the hot seat in the upcoming episode. Sony Entertainment Television shared a promo of the much-awaited episode which has further created a buzz, captioning "Kisson aur hassi se jamega shaandaar shukravaar ka rang, aa rahe hain Dada aur Viru #KBC13 ke manch par ek sang".
Virender Sehwag seemed extremely candid in the video, giving a fun response to Big B’s questions. The promo began with Mr Bachchan asking Sehwag about his tendency to sing while he’s on-field to which the cricketer responded by singing “Chala jata hoon…kisi ki dhun me..” and imitated the action of hitting the ball with a bat. Adding to the fun, Big B further went on to ask what song would fit in if a fielder misses a catch.”
Mockingly responding to the question and taking a dig at Ganguly-Chappell’s infamous rift, Sehwag replied that if the coach was Greg Chappell, one song that would fit is “Apni toh jaise taise, kat jayegi” and then continued singing “Aapka kya hoga janab-e-aali” pointing at Sourav Ganguly, which left Amitabh Bachchan in splits.

Further on, Big B presented a scenario to Sehwag asking what song would fit in if Team India wins a match against Pakistan or Australia. Replying to which Sehwag said, “Shehanshaan movie ka ek dialogue hai…” Big B recited his own dialogue from the film in his style “Rishte me toh hum tumhare baap lagte hai…” The cricketer laughed and mockingly said “Hum baap toh hai hi unke”.
This short promo has made the fans even more excited for the KBC episode featuring the two great cricketers to watch the light cricketer banter with Big B. This episode will air on Sony TV on 3rd September at 9 PM and will also be available online on SonyLIV and JioTV.
