Although demanded by public, Abhishek Bachchan is not going to appear on “Kaun KBC”. His father, Amitabh Bachchan, also the host of “KBC”, does not want his family appearing on the show. Aishwarya Bachchan stayed away from the show as well, though there were offers.
Actress Deepika Padukone and director Ashutosh Gowariker were the stars of this week’s episode. In spite of needing it for his career, Abhishek declined the offer. It would have been a great break for the young actor. Sources say there was a real battle behind the scene to pursue Abhishek to take the spot and stand next to his father on the show. Getting Abhishek on the show would have been great publicity for the latest film Abhishek worked at.
When asked about this, the Big B simply replied that the regulations do not allow family members on the set, and that there is a signed contract which includes this clause. However, this does not apply to special episodes. The real reason why Big B does not want his family on set is not giving anyone the opportunity of saying that he is using the show to boost his family’s careers.
