A surprised Host
The recent episode of the quiz reality show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ started up with a surprise. Contestant Professor Dhulichand Agarwal from Chhattisgarh surprised Amitabh Bachchan with his unique claim.
Agarwal expressed his sweet dissatisfaction with the legendary actor by saying that the actor owed him Rs 10. Big B, who was visibly shocked by the claim, was in for a memorable conversation with the contestant.
To explain more about his complaint, Agarwal went on to narrate an unforgettable incident from the 1970s. The contestant said that he was eagerly looking forward to watching Amitabh ’s ‘Muqaddar ka Sikandar’ in October 1977. He said that he managed to collect Rs 10 and traveled a great distance to a theatre to watch the film.
A story of the 1970s
“It was a time when I was studying in college. The financial situation back home was not good and I used to survive each month on a bare minimum. I took Rs 10 to watch your film on the first day of its release. With the Rs 10, I planned to buy the ticket, pay for the cycle stand, buy tea and snacks and return home,” said Agarwal.
After reaching the theatre, Agarwal said that he waited for hours in a queue to buy the ticket. However, when it was his turn to buy the ticket there was a huge rout and the police were called. Agarwal recalled that he was pushed as police did a lathi charge to control the crowd.
Agarwal later revealed that in the fuss he fell to the ground and sustained a head injury. That day, Agarwal swore never to watch the actor’s film and yearned to share this incident with the actor in person someday.
After hearing his story, Big B stood up and gave him Rs 20 with added interest. Not only did the star return the money, but also promised to watch the movie with him. As the show advanced, the banter between the star and Agarwal continued. Big B was also seen exchanging seats with Agarwal.
