Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary Bollywood superstar, has conquered the hearts of millions with his impeccable acting skills and charismatic personality. However, there is more to this iconic figure than meets the eye. In a recent episode of his popular quiz game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, Bachchan surprised everyone by revealing a side of him that many may not have expected.
The Surprising Revelation
During a conversation with contestant Harsh Shah, who shared details about his business, Bachchan was asked if he had ever cleaned utensils. To everyone’s astonishment, the megastar confessed, “Ha sir, kai baar bartan saaf kiya hai, kitchen ka chilamchii saaf kiya hai, bathroom me jo basin hota hai, use saaf kiya. Aisa kyu lagta hai ki humne na kiya hoga” (Yes, sir. I have cleaned utensils several times, even the bathroom sink. Why do you think I have never done these things?).
This revelation left the audience in awe and made them question their preconceived notions about celebrities. Amitabh Bachchan, despite being a legendary actor, is not someone who shies away from household chores. In fact, he takes pride in doing his fair share of work around the house. It is this humility and down-to-earth nature that endears him to his fans even more.
Learning Something New
It wasn’t just the audience who learned something surprising that day. Bachchan, too, got an interesting piece of information from Harsh Shah. The contestant shared that the word “Garba,” which refers to a popular Gujarati dance form, actually originated from the word “Garbh,” meaning womb. He further explained that Gujaratis create an earthen form and place a diya (lamp) in its middle, worshiping it by the name of Garbh. This exchange highlighted the importance of cultural knowledge and the joy of learning something new, no matter how famous or successful one may be.
Spreading the Message Against Piracy
Apart from sharing personal experiences, Amitabh Bachchan also used his platform to address a pressing issue in the film industry. When a question about torrents came up, he took the opportunity to urge his fans and the studio audience to always watch movies on the big screen. He emphasized the negative impact of pirated versions and encouraged everyone to support the industry by avoiding illegal downloads. This stance showcases his commitment to the art of cinema and his dedication to preserving its integrity.
Exploring New Avenues
While Bachchan continues to enlighten and entertain his fans through Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, he is also busy with multiple upcoming projects. Recently, he shared the screen with Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon in the movie Ganapath. Excitingly, he is set to appear alongside the talented Deepika Padukone, Kamal Haasan, and Prabhas in the highly anticipated film Kalki 2898 AD, directed by Nag Ashwin. Additionally, Bachchan is set to star alongside the legendary Rajinikanth in a film tentatively titled Thalaivar 170. These projects demonstrate his undying passion for acting and his ability to constantly reinvent himself on the silver screen.
