Bhopal: A private complaint was filed today in a court here, alleging promos of the upcoming season of TV quiz-show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' present the legal profession in a derogatory manner.

It names actor Amitabh Bachchan, the show's host, as one of the respondents.

The complaint was filed in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Sanjay Pande by Nasir Ali, legal cell coordinator of 'Gondwana Gantantra Party'.

The court has fixed a hearing on August 23 to record the statement of the complainant to decide whether any case can be registered against the respondents.
