Amitabh Bachchan was in for a double shock when not one however two individuals recalled their previous connections with him in back-to-back episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13. On Thursday’s episode of the present, Amitabh launched the ‘professional’ – former Flight Surgeon, Air Marshall, and Padma Shri-awardee, Padma Bandhopadhyay.
Amitabh listed her accomplishments, and knowledgeable the viewers that she was the primary lady to be given the rank of Air Marshall. The ex-Air Force officer thanked Amitabh Bachchan for his phrases, and stated to him, “Good evening sir, you may not know me, but I am your college-mate, from Kirori Mal College.”
Amitabh gasped, “Oh my gosh,” and requested her what years she was there. “60, 61 and 62; I was doing my pre-medical there. Then I joined Armed Forces Medical College. Long, long time back.” Amitabh said, “What a small world it is, what a small world it is,” and Padma Bandhobapdhyay agreed.
This is the second time in the same week that someone from Amitabh’s past has crossed paths with him on the show. On Wednesday’s episode, contestant Rashmi Kadam’s father, who had accompanied her on the show as her guest, told Amitabh that he used to be his bodyguard 30 years ago. “Sir, I was your PSO (personal security officer) in 1992, so I have worked as your bodyguard,” Rajendra Kadam stated. Amitabh was visibly stunned. Rajendra continued, “It was always a wish of mine to get a photograph clicked with you, but back then mobiles didn’t have cameras. But I’m here today, thanks to my daughter, so I’m very happy.”
Amitabh assured him that they’d get an image clicked collectively. The actor returned to host the thirteenth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati final month.
