SRK gifts his watch to contestant and romances a lady on KBC
For months there has been speculation whether King Khan will be able to live up to the image created by Big B on the daily television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati. The media and audiences too have been skeptical about SRK being able to replace Amitabh Bachchan’s charisma on the show. For SRK it is also a nostalgic moment as he returns to television after making his debut many years back on the small screen. Well the first week of KBC has passed and according to TRP’s and audiences reactions, SRK has managed to charm one and all on the show. The contestants seem smitten with him and he brings with him energy, enthusiasm and youthfulness to the show.
SRK has not changed the basic format of the show, but instead one could say he has reinvented the show with his witty one liners, constant jokes and even given new catchy phrases for several functions on the show. However it is SRK’s charm with the contestants that have them rooting for him. SRK gave a massage to one of the contestants who looked tense to make him feel comfortable, one of the contestants was dejected about having lost so SRK removed his personal Tag Huer watch and placed it on the contestant’s hand and hugged him. SRK has also managed to charm one sweet lady by romancing her on-screen and accepting her marriage proposal. For some this may sound as if Shahrukh is trying too hard, but for the contestants on the show and audiences watching the show at home, it is this charm and individualistic style that is making them want more of SRK. The King Khan is grateful for all the appreciation he has received and says “It is a challenge to do a new episode everyday, but I am loving every minute of it. I am here to see that at the end of the day, even if contestants lose the game, I bring a smile to their face.”
SRK is vivacious, enthusiastic and game for anything innovative while doing the show; he seems to have also hit it off with the youth who identify with his style and exuberance on the show. The rap video too at the start of KBC comes across as cute and cool and displays SRK’s dynamism and uniqueness. SRK does not take the comparisons to Mr. Bachchan seriously as he feels that it was inevitable, nonetheless he says “I think it is a little silly to compare people as every individual has their own style.” SRK hopes that he will be able to continue to hold the audiences attention with his KBC show, he is also currently very excited as he will be soon be unveiling his wax statue at Madame Tussauds Museum in London .
