Actor Amitabh Bachchan is all set to bid goodbye as the host of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 15’ (KBC 15). He said he has witnessed a new India on the ten seats of the stage. The first episode of season 15 premiered on August 14. Amitabh has hosted 14 seasons of the knowledge-based reality show, since the year 2000. The season 3 of the show which premiered in 2007 was hosted by superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The last episode of this season featured an IAS aspirant Avinash Bharti, who hails from Haiderganj, Uttar Pradesh. He won the amount of Rs 50 lakh. The finale episode featured Indian Para-archer Sheetal Devi and actress Vidya Balan. They were followed by veteran actress Sharmila Tagore, and her granddaughter and diva Sara Ali Khan.

In episode 100 of KBC 15, which is titled as ‘Vidai Ka Samay’, the megastar was seen giving a monologue. For the finale episode, Amitabh sported a red suit and paired it with a white shirt. In the monologue, the ‘Don’ actor said, “Goodbyes are really strange. Those who bid goodbye with a smile do so with really heavy hearts. Bidding a beloved goodbye doesn't make you sad because it leaves the house vacant, rather, it makes you sad because their departure leaves a void in your heart.”

Amitabh Bachchan also said that he had the urge to sit in the audience's seat. As a host, he would often interact with the audience and post the show shoot would even oblige for pictures. "Normally, these seats are occupied by the audience and their selfless love. By people who are here to help total strangers. Prayers are invoked here. Playfulness and shenanigans are also born here. l've witnessed a new India on these 10 seats (fastest finger first seats). A glorious and progressive India,” he said.

“The resonating applause of the viewers not only honours the efforts of every contestant, but also, always, inspires me to keep going.I wish to end this season with that very applause,” he ended his speech.
