Popular Indian quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati has been topping the rating charts ever since the megastar Amitabh Bachchan returned to the show for its 9th season. But what comes as a major blow to the fans is that the show is going off air soon. Reportedly, KBC 9 will be broadcasting its final episode on 23rd October. This year also the show did wonders when it comes to TRP and rocked the charts.

With popular guests like  PV Sindhu, Actress Shilpa Shetty, Mithila Raj and Abhishek Bachchan in the show, KBC 9 certainly did amuse the viewers as its every season did always.

According to a report by SpoyboyE, there are three new shows which can replace KBC 9, Sequel of Pehredaar Piya Ki, Haasil and Ek Deewana Tha.

Last month, the show made a lot of buzz with its first crorepati of the season, social worker Anamika Mazumdar, who hails from Jamshedpur. Anamika surprised everyone with her feat and even Amitabh Bachchan applauded her grit and confidence.

Thus all that we can say that KBC 9 till now is running in full swing with an overwhelming response from its viewers.

The viewers will surely have a tough time biding adieu to the magnitude of Mr. Bachan’s voice welcoming everyone to their TV screens.

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has shared anecdotes about his last name and said that “Bachchan” was his father and legendary poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poetic nom de plume.

The 76-year-old cine icon took to his blog and discuss about the caste system prevalent in ancient India.

“The caste system in the land has been prevalent for centuries, followed diligently by many and now defied by many too, (it is) an ailment that has plagued our society or not by some,” he wrote.

He said that his father was a “strong opposer” of the caste system.

Amitabh found the initiative laudable but "embarrassing" to see all that was displayed on the walls were his portraits.

“Babuji was born in a Kayasth home and a Srivastav. But his temperament was always against the ailment of caste, his nome de plume, his ‘takhallus’ his pen name he designed as ‘BACHCHAN’. Poets writers of great eminence often designed their names with a nom de plume. So ‘Bachchan’ became my Father’s pen name, his poetic nom de plume but it lent credence of its concept later when I was born, on being admitted to my first School, and being asked by the teachers what surname of this boy was to be filled in the admission form my Mother and father had a quick discussion and it was decided that ‘Bachchan’ would be the family surname,” he wrote.
