Wife Jaya is Big B’s inspiration

Jaya Bachchan might be smaller in height than Amitabh Bachchan but Big B looked upon her. She is his inspiration and it was Jaya Bachchan who encouraged her to make telly appearance again. Big B set to anchor the fourth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati and initially he was nervous but after watching the show, Jaya complimented him and boost up his confidence.

"I was scared and nervous not knowing what the public would have to say about the show, about my involvement and its eventual result", blogged Bachchan about his first day's experiences of anchoring the blockbuster game show.

"I had come home and isolated myself in my office room and quietly had put on the TV, almost not wanting anyone to hear that I was watching the programme," he wrote.

"After 5 mins of its start I put it off, unable to bear what the rest of the country was thinking about it and waited silently for it to get over. And when it did I hesitated to face the family. It was in vain though. The family, represented by Jaya had watched the entire show and when I came to her she said 'Amit ji! This show is going to be a super hit!'," said Big B in his blog.

Amitabh Bachchan is all set to rule the small screen again and challenge other telly soaps.
