Yesteryear's Bollywood star Shatrughan Sinha will once again be seen entertaining his fans, this time in the small screen anchoring the Bhojpuri version of the popular game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.
Sinha will be seen anchoring the Bhojpuri version of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' that will hit the screen from June 6.
The Bhojpuri edition has been named 'Ke Bani Crorepati' and Sinha has completed the entire shooting of the show that will be aired on Mahuua TV.
"I believe that the show 'Ke Bani Crorepati' is all set to change television content in the Bhojpuri language. It's a tribute to the Bhojpuri language community that an international format like 'Who Wants to be Millionaire' popular as 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' in India is being made in Bhojpuri language," he said.
Bollywood star Govinda, singer Udit Narayan, politician Yashwant Sinha and actor Sonakshi Sinha (daughter of Sinha) will feature in the celebrity episodes of the show.
"Sonakshi will be on the hot seat before me. Audiences will finally get to see baap-beti (father and daughter) together on the small screen first," he said.
"We want to scale new heights in creating local language content and KBC is a taste of things to come. We are proud to collaborate with Siddharth Basu and Big Synergy in taking this pioneering step and producing a world class show in these two languages," Yubraj Bhattacharya, CEO, Mahuaa TV, said.
The Bengali version of the popular show will also be aired in the channel in the coming days.
Mahuaa TV and Mahuaa Bangla channel will telecast the Bengali and the Bhojpuri version of the popular show.
