The host of Kaun Banega Crorepati once again rode the roller coaster of fame. A mellowed Bachchan found himself firmly locked in the hearts of millions of his adoring fans. The show represented a paradigm shift in the history of Indian television. It is still luxuriating in the lap of success.

Amitabh said that he does not know how to do business! His field is acting and there he is at the top.
