The season has proved to be a success with Kaun Banega Crorepati topping the TV ratings. As per BARC (Broadcast Audience Research Council) data, the show topped the Hindi GEC (General Entertainment Channels) ratings in week 40 (30 September to 6 October) bagging 11,533 (impressions in 000s).
With a successful season, one cannot rule out Bachchan, now 75, returning with another season next year. The actor will resume shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Thugs of Hindostan.
