To celebrate 1000 episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati, host Amitabh Bachchan welcomed his daughter Shweta Nanda and granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda on the show. KBC is currently in its 13th season.
Amitabh took to Twitter to share a picture of the three of them from the sets and wrote, “Betiyaan sabse pyaari, unka hi jahaan hai (Daughters are the most lovable, it is their world).” He shared more photos of them on his blog.
In another blog post, Amitabh reflected on the milestone achieved by KBC. “So yes, the 1000th episode on the platform of Kaun Banega Crorepati was given its due importance and the request by the channel to bring in the family on that revered and feared hot seat was accepted. And there we were, as per the pictures in the previous,” he wrote.
Calling it an ‘evening of great pride’ for him, Amitabh wrote, “A delight to be able to not just test the ability of the ‘contestants’ but to give the freedom to express what many have felt has been undisclosed and kept behind closed doors. The banter of the family dining table, the repartee, and most importantly the several causes that the young at this age think about and work for. An evening of great pride for the father and grandfather – for Papa and Nana!”

Amitabh said that Shweta and Navya got ‘rapturous ecstatic appreciation’ from the KBC team. “The emotions that poured out at the collective viewing of both personal and highlighted incidents, and the appreciation of the masses in genuine applause. My gratefulness then in abundance, ever,” he wrote.
