It is the first time when the makers of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) are zeroed in on female actor to host show’s latest season.Earlier there was speculation that Ranbir Kapoor might replace Amitabh Bachchan as the host of the 9th season of KBC but it seems things did not materialize. The sources say that the channel is looking at revamping the show and planning to have a female host. There are few actresses in Bollywood who match Bib B’s caliber. The makers are planning to bring either Madhuri Dixit or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the board.
Madhuri Dixit is well known face on Television as she has judged four seasons of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, two seasons of So You Think You Can Dance India and the matchmaking show Kahi Na Kahi Koi Hai. On the other-side, Aishwarya Rai is popular at International level and it will be a big deal if she gives nod. Both the actresses have been approached and chased aggressively, say sources.
If Aishwarya Rai gives it a nod, it will be her debut on a small screen. Kaun Banega Crorepati was offered to Big B at a time when he was going through a lull at the box office. By this show, he impressed everyone with his warmth and eloquence.
