No entry for Abhishek on KBC: Big B
Abhisehk Bachchan will not be a part of the promotional episode for Khelein Hum Jee Jaan se on KBC, says Big B.
ABHISHEK BACHCHAN will not feature on his iconic father's show, Kaun Banega Crorepati, as per the rules of the show which says that “as per the rules and regulation of the company that owns the original rights of KBC, relatives of the anchor are not permitted to participate in the show. There's a signed contract with a clause in this regard”.

This is not the first instance where a member from the Bachchan family was barred by Amitabh to appear on the show. Earlier, it was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who did not appear on the show for the promotion of her film Action Replayy despite actors being present.

Although Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Abhishek’s upcoming movie which is a crucial release for him, the host chose to abide by the rules of the show and invited director Ashutosh Gowariker and the leading lady of the movie Deepika Padukone who have recorded an episode with Amitabh sans Abhishek.

For the Grand Finale show on December 9, channel had planned to bring the entire Bachchan clan on air, but due to above mentioned rules, the idea was dropped. They have now proposed to bring Dharmendra aboard making it 'Sholay' special.

Ajit Thakur, CEO, of the channel said, “We were indeed in advanced talks with the Bachchan family to come on the show. However, it finally didn't work out. Even Abhishek is missing in the episode featuring his colleagues for the promotion of their film."

However, the channel's personnel claim that the contract rules are not applicable for special episodes.
