"It's a great time for the industry. More the business, the earnings, the better it is," the 69-year-old said.

"Last year, the film industry was going through a bad phase. Most films were not working. But it is good to see that lately films are doing good business," he added.

Amitabh will soon be seen hosting the sixth season of game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC)', and admits it has helped him increase his knowledge base.

"The amount of knowledge I get from here (KBC), I don't get outside. I'm grateful to 'KBC' because of which my knowledge is also increasing," he said.

The first season of 'KBC' went on air in 2000 on Star Plus. After four seasons, the show shifted to Sony last year and now the sixth season of the game show is ready to go on air September 7.
