Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11 (KBC 11) is set to hit small screens with megastar Amitabh Bachchan reprising his role as host of the upcoming season. While the registration for the eleventh season started in May, Big B will begin shooting for the show from August 1, PinkVilla.com reported. The makers of KBC 11 are currently busy locking contestants and while ardent viewers of the popular show are eagerly waiting for the show to go on air, reports are rife that since the channel will be launching another show before KBC 11, they are yet to finalize the premiere date.
However, the report said that Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11 is likely to go on air from August 19 onwards. “Amitabh Bachchan will begin shooting for the show from August 1. The Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11 contestants for the show are currently being locked. Given that the channel will be launching another show before Amitabh Bachchan, they are yet to fix the premiere date but mostly it will go on air in the third week of August, 19th August. Final discussion on the same is ongoing though,” a source told the web portal.

Meanwhile, senior Amitabh Bachchan has been a part of the game show for nine seasons. Speaking about his association with the Kaun Banega Crorepati, Amitabh Bachchan on his blog wrote, “It’s 2019 and it all began in 2000. 19 years and a gap of about two years when it did not happen for me. But 17 years is a lifetime and a lifetime that was given a lifeline by you.”
