Punit Goenka son of Zee head Subhash Chandra Agarwal has been regularly meeting Amitabh regarding the show. Bachchan is considering the offer but is not too keen on fighting against Shahrukh in the same slot. He has made it clear that he will not take up the show if it is pitched in the same slot as Shahrukh's Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain.
Bachchan and Shahrukh have been at war on the small screen ever since Shahrukh took over Kaun Banega Crorepati 3 from Big B. The show which was initially meant to be hosted by Bachchan but went to King Khan owing to Bachchan's poor health.
