Actor Amitabh Bachchan was shocked and speechless on the set of the play Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) 13 after a participant bombarded him with questions about actor Taapsee Pannu. In a new promo video from Sony Entertainment Television, rival Sahil Ahirwal of Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur is seen sitting on the hot seat.
The video begins with a brief about his life. The son of a security guard, Sahil intends to become an IAS officer. In the course of her conversation, Amitabh Bachchan asks Sahil about his favorite artist where he immediately took the name of actor Salman Khan. Amitabh then nodded his head as he repeated ‘Salman Khan’
In the video, Sahil said that Taapsee was his ‘crush’ and his ‘love’. He then told Amitabh, “Sir, aap toh andar ki baat jaante honge (you must be knowing the inside scoop),” before asking him what her favourite food is.
Amitabh said that while he did not know Taapsee’s favourite food, he could vouch for the fact that she loved to eat. However, Sahil did not give up and asked what she loved to eat. Amitabh then quipped that Sahil was the one in the hot seat, not him.
Sahil also asked Amitabh why he defended Taapsee in Pink, only to trap her in Badla. “Jab sir aapko phasana hi tha toh aapne Pink mein bachaya kyun tha Taapsee ma’am ko (Sir, if you wanted to trap her in the end, why did you save her in Pink)?” he asked.
