He put an end to speculation around the show. It was recently reported that the show could be taken over by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Amitabh’s daughter-in-law. However, we now know who will welcome the guests on the hot seat from September this year.
The last season of the show aired in 2014, and wasn’t as high on ratings as expected after which the broadcaster decided to give it a breather. The show hadn’t taken a break since its first season despite a change in hosts and broadcaster in the interim. Bachchan Senior had been replaced by Shah Rukh Khan for one season after which the superstar took over. The show also switched channels from the fourth edition in 2010.
