Amitabh Bachchan has started filming the 11th season of popular reality game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati". 

The 76-year-old actor on Saturday took to Twitter to share the news. "It has begun... another 'KBC' ... 19 years since it started... 11 seasons... and the love of all the viewers," Bachchan tweeted along with some photographs from the sets.

 

The "Badla" star wrote on his blog recounting the "the signature tune" of the show, which has been airing since 2000. "... And the tech rehearsals come alive and the palpitation for the morrow and the first episode for this year and its apprehensions and uncertainties... But shall try to give it a best knock..." he wrote.

"KBC", based on the UK programme "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?".

The registration for show began in May and if reports are to be believed, mostly it will go on air in the third week of August, 19th August. Final discussion on the same is ongoing though.

Interestingly, KBC 11 will clash with Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 13. Speaking about his association with the general knowledge-based game show, Big B on his blog wrote, "It's 2019 and it all began in 2000. 19 years and a gap of about two years when it did not happen for me. But 17 years is a lifetime and a lifetime that was given a lifeline by you."

The actor recently wrapped up the shoot of "Gulabo Sitabo".  The movie, set in Lucknow, is billed as a quirky family comedy, penned by Sircar's longtime collaborator Juhi Chaturvedi.
