The special episode will be aired on Monday from 9 PM Indian Standard Time (IST). Watch live streaming of the show.
The KBC episode will celebrate India’s success at the Commonwealth Games 2022, which concluded in Birmingham last month. Both Mirabai Chanu and Nikhat Zareen won gold medals at the quadrennial event.
Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu, a silver medallist from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and Nikhat Zareen, who became only the fifth Indian boxer earlier this year to become a world champion, can be seen sharing inspiring stories from their lives in the episode’s promo shared by Sony Network.
The promo shows boxer Nikhat Zareen narrating an incident when she was outpunched heavily by a male boxer and returned home badly beaten.
“My coach once arranged a bout with a male boxer from which I returned home with a bruised face and bleeding nose. My mother started crying and worrying that if something happens to me, no one would ask me for a marriage,” Nikhat Zareen recounted.
In response to her mother, Nikhat Zareen noted that if she makes a good name for herself, grooms will be lining up for her, instead.
Mirabai Chanu, meanwhile, requested Amitabh Bachchan to repeat a famous dialogue from one of his blockbuster movies Agneepath.
This is not the first time KBC has invited popular Indian sports personalities on the show. In 2020, Indian tennis player Leander Paes and gymnast Dipa Karmakar graced the TV show.
Kaun Banega Crorepati runs on the lines of popular American quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. KBC was first aired in 2000.
