Other countries now aping KBC's innovative concepts: Amitabh
"Like Siddharth (Basu) said, shows similar to 'KBC' are running in more than 80 countries. But they now ask us what are we going to do next in 'KBC' because we will copy from you and implement in our show," the 69-year-old said Wednesday at a press conference held for 'KBC 6'.
Amitabh further applauded the team of the Indian version of the game show for introducing new catch lines and themes every year.
"I congratulate the team for bringing something new in it each year. People are coming closer through new concepts to make the show more respectful. Like last year the slogan was 'Koi bhi insaan chhota nahin hota' (no person is small) and now we are saying 'Gyaan hi aapko aapka haq dilata hai" (only knowledge gets you your right)," Amitabh said.
Talking about the new season's tagline, Amitabh said: "I still remember, I had applied in big companies but I was rejected because I did not know the answers to the questions I was asked in the interview. So I believe, if I had knowledge at that time, I would have got that job. This I realised later."
"I ask my children about the education they are giving to their children. While other things happen, education should not be ignored," he added.
'Kaun Banega Crorepati 6' kicks off September 7.
