Trust Amitabh Bachchan to touch the hearts of his desi fans and the actor never fails.

In a new promo for the upcoming season of popular quiz show, ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, a contestant from the Northeast is shown in the hot seat.

The question put before the contestant is ‘The city of Kohima belongs to which country?’ A. China B. Nepal C. India D. Bhutan.

However, instead of answering the question on her own, the contestant chooses to take the audience’s poll and the answer is ‘India’. To which Amitabh Bachchan says “This is something everyone knows”. The girl then replies, “Yes Sir, everyone knows about it but how many believe it?”


In light of the brutal attacks and discrimiation against people from Northeast, the commercial surely touches upon the sentiments of our brothers and sisters from states like Manipur, Assam, Meghalaya and other parts of Northeast India and the need for the rest of the country to embrace them as our own.
