Kaun Banega Crorepati is set to premiere on your television screens tonight, and it promises to be a special treat for Amitabh Bachchan fans.
Sony Entertainment Television is pulling out all stops to make sure the game show will be a big success, especially since it will be launched on the Big B's birthday.
The show will open with a song composed by Vishal-Shekhar, and directed by Shaimak Davar. His 80-member dance troupe was especially flown in from all the corners of the world. Eighty-one pagdis were especially bought for the show, out of which one is eight feet by 12 feet tall!
The show starts with Amitabh Bachchan making a grand entry from a 24 feet tall structure in the form of an 'A,' narrating his father's poetry.
The entire set -- constructed by Nitin Desai at Yash Raj Studios -- is white with the dancers holding white candles and posters of the actor's famous films.
