Bengali actor and producer Prasenjit Chatterjee is all set to host television game show Ke Hobe Banglar Kotipoti starting July. The show is the Bengali version of Kaun Banega Crorepati, hosted throoughout by Amitabh Bachchan, except for season 3 that was hosted by Shahrukh Khan.
“In this show I will be Bumba da not Prasenjit. For the last 30-35 years, the people of Bengal have loved me as Bumba da. The participants will come with a lot of dreams in the show. As Bumba, if I can take their dreams a little forward, I will feel humbled,” Chatterjee said.
During an interview with Anandabazar Patrika, a daily, Chatterjee was asked if he consciously took the decision to appear on the television show, “I have stopped doing films and have decided to stay connected to the audience [with this television show].”
Chatterjee also claimed that the show will be of international quality and brushed off all queries on being compared with Bachchan as a host.
