The popular game show Kannadada Kotyadhipathi is all set to make a comeback to the small screen with the quizmaster and Kannada star Puneeth Rajkumar.
The game show is a Kannada version of the famous game series Kaun Banega Crorepati, which was hosted for several seasons by the Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
Puneeth, who will be returning as the show’s host, spoke to indianexpress.com about the experience of working on the show.
“When I was offered this show in 2011, the first thing that came to my mind was Appaji (late Dr Rajkumar) liked Kaun Banega Crorepati very much. Until he was alive, my father saw all the episodes of that show. And, it was hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, an actor who I admire a lot,” revealed the star.
Puneeth said he feels very responsible whenever he sits on ‘the chair’.
“People come here with Saraswati (the goddess of knowledge) and walk away with Lakshmi (the goddess of wealth),” he added.
Puneeth is returning after a gap of seven years to host the show.
