KBC 14: Amitabh Bachchan’s new video trolls prime-time news anchors who claimed there is GPS in Rs 2000 notes
Kaun Banega Crorepati 14 - Amitabh Bachchan.

The makers of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 14 (2022) have recently shared a video which is a direct dig at a few prime-time anchors. The clip hits back at those anchors who claimed that there is a GPS tracker in Rs. 2000 notes. This claim had come right after demonetization in 2016.

In the video, host Amitabh Bachchan is seen talking to a lady named Guddu. He asks her which of the following has GPS technology – a typewriter, Television, satellite or Rs. 2000 note.

Hearing from the news channels, Guddu confidently picks the last option – Rs. 2000 note. The answer, however, is termed incorrect. “Mazak toh woh tha jisse aapne sach maan liya,” Big B is heard saying in the video.

Finally, senior Bachchan is heard spreading the message of the video. This message is to gain knowledge but never with cross-checking facts, since half-knowledge is more dangerous.

Kaun Banega Crorepati has reached in its 14th season. The show has been one of the longest-running reality shows on TV along with the same host. Amitabh Bachchan-hosted KBC and Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss are almost at par in that manner.

KBC is a show that helped Amitabh Bachchan bounce back into fame and stardom. The megastar had almost gone bankrupt when he received the show and ever since, he and his voice have been associated with India’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

The premiere date for the show has not yet been announced. KBC airs on Sony TV and can also be streamed on Sony LIV almost a day after the show airs on TV.
