Launch Of KBC 8
Their chemistry was crackling! Their barbs were hilarious! And their oneliners literally bowled over the audience assembled here for the mega launch of the eighth season of "Kaun Banega Crorepati", to go on air Aug 17.
Amitabh Vs Kapil
From taking potshots at each other to trading light-hearted barbs - both of them put their funny sides foremost and cracked up the audience Saturday at the jam-packed Surat International Exhibition and Convention Centre, which has a seating capacity of about 7,000.
Titans Of Indian Television
The two, now described as the titans of Indian television -- Big B for his over 14-year successful stint with KBC, and Kapil for entertaining with his hit show "Comedy Nights With Kapil" -- were so enthralling that the audience stayed glued to their seats for over five hours.
Amitabh's Question To Kapil's Mother
But the highest was when Big B, marvelling at Kapil's humour, turned to the comedian's mom sitting in the audience and asked: "Aaj main bhi aap se poochna chahta hoon ki aapne kya kha ke isse paida kiya tha?"
Kapil's Proposal To Deepika Padukone
Another funny moment was when Kapil's single status was enquired about and he turned the table by requesting Big B and saying: "Would you please be kind enough to take my proposal to actress Deepika Padukone?"
Kapil admitted being jittery about teaming up with Amitabh, but praised him for "giving space" and added: "This is my third time with Bachchan saab and whenever I work with him, I feel blessed."
Kapil - Amitabh Complemented Each Other
They complemented each other on the stage and their fans were delighted to see them letting their hair down, especially 71-year-old Bachchan, who was in full form.
"Daal-phulka," pat came Kapil's mom's response and had the people in splits, and she then told Big B that his father had a good sense of humour and he has inherited it from him.
Kapil's Father KBC Fan
Kapil, who also took the hot seat for a dummy round, said his father was a fan of KBC and he used to watch the game show with him.
The ace comedian got emotional too."My mother was sitting in the audience and I got emotional, but then I thought I have come here to entertain people...."
Big B's Avatar
Often seen in his serious avatar, Big B was a treat to watch and Kapil, known for his gift of the gab, heightened the fun with his presence.
