KBC is set for a big bang opening and zillions of fans of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan are in for a special treat as the channel & India's biggest superstar ever are pulling all plugs to ensure that the opening of Kaun Banega Crorepati 2010 is unlike anything seen on Indian television before.

The entire making of the set was created on a very short notice, yet no corners were left untouched and everything was looked after to the hilt.

The perfectionist in Mr. Amitabh Bachchan along with his sense of humor and boundless energy during the shoot kept everyone on their toes and in high spirit. His creative suggestions were really appreciated by everyone and motivated them to give in their best.



He was so enthused about the opening song that he jammed with composers Vishal-Shekhar till the wee hours of the morning to complete it. The music video is directed by India's contemporary dance guru; Shiamak Davar who was extremely excited to watch the legend perform in front of his eyes.

A very touched Shiamak said 'Recreating the best of Mr. Bachchan's work was a challenge. That's why I decided to do a piece that would reflect Mr. Bachchan's journey as a poet to an actor to a star to a superstar and finally as the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati 2010. The opening for Kaun Banega Crorepati is a tribute to Mr. Bachchan's best work, something never seen or experienced before. I am honored to have gotten the opportunity to direct him for this.'

CHECK OUT: I think I have remained myself

Despite a short notice, Shiamak got his troupe from all the corners of the world and 80 dancers were specially flown down and the shoot went seamlessly without any hassles. 81 Pagdis were also specially bought in for this out of which one Pagdi was 8 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 ambience was white with Shiamak's dancers holding white candles and posters of Mr. Bachchan's famous films were put all around the studio. These posters were specially sourced from all over the place in the middle of the night.

This grand set was constructed by Nitin Desai at Yash Raj Studio, and he did a fabulous job with it.

With the presence of the magnetic Amitabh Bachchan, it was difficult to keep people away from the shoot. The shoot was a super success and the best opening to a magnificent show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 2010. So tune in to watch the magic unfold.
