The D Day has finally come as January 22nd was the night which everyone was waiting for. As India braced to catch the first glimpse of the King in the Emperor's clothing, the debate whether SRK fits into the shoes of Big B was speculated upon.
Nobody had the answers till 9 pm yesterday. However from the first 30 minutes of the first episode, it seems SRK will has literally fit into the Big B's shoes -- sitting in the same revolving chair, facing the same TFT monitor in the same blue-light ambiance with the same old music playing in the background.
The episode began from where Big B had ended, quizzing the last candidate to appear on Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya, who had ended up earning just Rs 80,000 when the curtains fell on the show.
SRK has stepped into the show when his career is at the pinnacle and if at all people are calling it a big bargain, it's because he risked losing some of his fame, if not fortune, just in case he failed to live up to expectations. But SRK being SRK, he has done it and has added his element of reverence and awe to the show. And if Big B was reverence personified, SRK is all the 'fun and energy', something that is likely to go extremely well with the young.
All said and done, SRK exceeds the benchmark that Big B had set and possibly fix new ones. He has proved that he is definitely the Don when it comes to matching the charismatic baritone of Big B.
