Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says during festivals, he always tries to keep himself free to spend time with his family. Amitabh, who hosts the popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC), greeted soldiers at the Wagah Border in an episode of the show.

A soldier named Pushpika Sahu asked Amitabh whether he is also unable to take leave or celebrate festivals with family members because of work. To that, Amitabh replied, “I try to keep myself free during festivals so that I can celebrate them with my family, but sometimes if I am out of India for shoots, I can’t be with my family.”

When the ‘Piku’ star asked the soldiers to share their wishes to the country for Diwali, one of them said, “We want our country to be happy always and request the citizens to have faith in us. We wish and pray that everyone celebrates Diwali with love and happiness.”

During the episode, the soldiers also sang popular Amitabh song ‘Dekha na hai re socha na’.’Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.


This Diwali, Amitabh and his family will not celebrate the festival with a grand party like every year, as his daughter-in-law Aishwarya’s father Krishnaraj Rai had died earlier this year, said a source close to the actor.

    I will do whatever, I wish to do. Why are you force feeding me with everything about my life. You block ALL my channels to talk, to go out, to have friends and than force feed me, I should do this, I should do that. Why are you forcing your thoughts on me ? I simply want my life. Why are you all ruining my life. Why are you forcing me to go this place , that place. when you know you people will vomit every single place I go, you vomit on every single conversation I have. Why are you all ruining my life ? I don't want to interact with you people anymore.
