What made the Action Replayy gang nervous
The Action Replayy team promoted their film on Kaun Banega Crorepati earlier this week, and managed to earn Rs 50 lakh. The entire amount was donated to Salman Khan's charity foundation Being Human, a reason why Aishwarya Rai Bachchan apparently decided to skip the show.
But the actors who came seemed to enjoy their KBC experience.
"At first, I couldn't believe that I was sitting in front of Amitabh sir," Aditya Roy Kapoor said. "I pinched myself and realised I was actually on KBC. Sir came and made me feel comfortable. It was my first meeting with him; I was dying to meet him from a long time. It's everyone's dream to be on the hot seat and interact with Mr Bachchan. We all joked around and had fun before and after the show."

'Amitabh makes you feel as if it's just a normal chat'
Shefali Shah, whom Amitabh referred to as 'Malkin,' confessed that she was very nervous on the hot seat.
"I was anxious, nervous and everything a normal person would feel when one has to sit in front of Amitji and play KBC," she said. "In addition to that, I had to answer a question that couldn't be passed on. Thankfully, it was easy."
Shefali has shared screen space with Amitabh before -- she had played his wife in Vipul Shah's Waqt: Race Against Time. "He is an incredible actor and a very nice person," she said about AB. "He makes you feel as if it's just a normal chat, which actually helped me in answering the questions easily."

'We were disappointed at not winning Rs 1 crore'
Ranvijay, the ex-Roadie who also stars in Action Replayy, cheered his team on throughout KBC.
"It was a dream come true and an honour for me," he says. "I had met Amitabh sir once before but it was just for a few seconds. He is almost double my age but still makes you feel so comfortable that you don't feel nervous. We had a blast."
Did he feel bad that they fell just short of winning Rs 1 crore? "Shefaliji passed the question to Neha and I thought Neha would answer it, as it was very easy. But she couldn't. We were disappointed but then Rs 50 lakh is not a small amount," he said.
