Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is the brand ambassador of Gujarat, is set to shoot the launch episode of his hugely popular TV reality game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati 8" in Surat.
The idea is to commence the game show in great style and grandeur with the Big B.
The knowledge-based show will, for the first time, be uniquely shot live amidst Surat residents and telecast on Sony Entertainment Television at a later date, which is yet to be announced, said a statement.
The event is scheduled for Aug 2 at Surat International Exhibition and Convention Centre, Althan-Sarsana Road, Surat.
The registrations for the event commenced July 22, and the selection of contestants to qualify will be done in two rounds. The shortlisted participants will get a chance to play the fastest finger round, and the one who answers the question correctly quickest, will get an opportunity to be on the much-celebrated KBC hot seat.
