Amitabh Bachchan has become the face of the Indian quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati and rightly so. The legendary actor celebrated the show’s 1000th episode in its 13th season. The show’s makers requested Amitabh to “bring in the family on that revered and feared hot seat” and the host obliged.

In a very special episode for fans of the show and Big B alike, the actor will play the nerve wrecking game with his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda and her daughter and entrepreneur Navya Naveli sitting on the hot seat.

Amitabh Bachchan shared a picture of himself alongside his daughter Shweta and granddaughter Navya with the caption, “Daughters be the best”. The trio were spotted wearing outfits in the shades of blue.

The actor could not contain his excitement and went on to talk about his day in a blog post which was made on Thursday morning. It featured several pictures of the actor alongside Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Navya Naveli from the set of the 1,000th episode shoot.

In his blog, Amitabh wrote, “In the early hours of the morning, I rise and thoughts run to the incompleteness of the missive that reaches over 5000, and the left-over of the night before at work, comes chasing the mind, of having completed the thousandth KBC episode, yes 1000 episodes since its introduction to the World of Television in the year of our making 2000.”

Big B added, “So yes, the 1000th episode on the platform of Kaun Banega Crorepati, was given its due importance and the request by the Channel to bring in the family on that revered and feared Hot Seat, was accepted. And there we were, as per the pictures in the previous. A delight, to be able to, not just test the ability of the ‘contestants’, but to give the freedom to express what many have felt has been undisclosed and kept behind closed doors. The banter of the family dining table, the repartee, and most importantly the several causes that the young at this age think about and work for. An evening of great pride for the Father and Grandfather – for Papa and Nana!”
