India’s premier track and field athletes Dutee Chand and Hima Das, along with former India cricketer Virender Sehwag were on the hot seat of popular quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Amitabh Bachchan in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The episode saw Big B return to work after his treatment in hospital last week. The 77-year-old was discharged from Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai on Friday night after being admitted for some routine check-up, hospital sources said.
The Bollywood superstar was back at work, this time quizzing the sports trio in the 11th episode this season.
Hima put on a tweet, sharing her experience on the show.
“It was really a great honour and best moment of my life while playing Kaun Banega Crorepati with the one and only Bollywood superstar @SrBachchan sir alongwith the Nawab of Najafgarh @virendersehwag and @DuteeChand. Really enjoyed the show and learned alot from AB sir and Viru sir,” the AIFF World Youth Champion tweeted.
Writing on his return to work, Bachchan tweeted: “So jogging on to the set and the cheer and applause from the most loving audience as ever, and all else is forgotten .. they stand and they scream and they cheer and applaud despite my efforts to stop them and calm them down .. but no they continue and humble me beyond all .. then starts the process of the hair and the dress and the look for the camera on the chair .. a quick gratitude to the audience and ready to go,” he wrote with the photos of his guests Virender Sehwag, alongwith Dutee Chand and Hima Das.
