Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, the host of the game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 14 (KBC), was in disbelief when actor Akshay Kumar said that he once 'quietly went and returned' from Kumbh Mela held in Allahabad. In a new promo video shared by Sony Entertainment Television on Instagram on Tuesday, Akshay Kumar was seen on the hot seat.
In the video, Amitabh asked Akshay, "Aap kabhi gaye hai ghumne udhar (Did you ever visit the place)?" A smiling Akshay replied, “Ji, main ek baar gaya tha (Yes, I have visited once)." A surprised Amitabh asked, "Oh ek baar gaye hai aap (Oh, so you have been there once)?"
Akshay responded, "Hann. Mauka mila tha, chup chap chala gaya tha, chup chap jaake waapis aagaya (Yes. I got a chance once, I went there quietly and returned without telling anyone).” At this Amitabh looked at the audience in disbelief and asked, “Yeh chup chaap gaye the (He went quietly)?!”
Akshay made his comeback teasing Amitabh with his reply, “Kyu, main chup chaap nahi jaa sakta (Why I can't go quietly)?" The veratan actor said, "Nahi nahi jaasakte hai sir lekin (No, you can go sir but...)."
Akshay interrupted him saying, "Aap kayi kayi jagahon pe chup chaap jaate ho, hum nahi jaa sakte kahi bhi (You have visited many places quietly, I can't do the same)?” Confused about his reply for a moment, Amitabh smiled and said, "Nahi nahi (Of course)." He then burst out laughing as Akshay joined him.
The video was shared with the caption, "@akshaykumar aur @amitabhbachchan ji, aise aap ek dusre ke raaz kholenge toh kaise chalega (If you reveal each others' secrets how will it work)?" KBC is currently in its finale week. Several celebrities including Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani, Shark Tank India judges Aman Gupta and Vineeta Singh as well as chef Vikas Khanna will be seen in the show. KBC airs at 9 pm on Sony LIV and Sony Entertainment Television.
