MUMBAI—Amitabh Bachchan has over the years given many special memories to cherish to the fans of “Kaun Banega Crorepati.” But what everyone will witness in the ongoing season 9 is something that even Bachchan could not have envisaged. As the host turns 75 on Oct. 11, the team of “KBC 9” came up with a unique idea to celebrate his birthday.

They created a special video that had students and professors of the Sherwood College, Nainital, from where Bachchan had graduated. In the backdrop of the college that was decorated with many life-size posters of Bachchan, not only did they sing birthday songs but also praised and thanked him for giving them many special moments in his 17-year long stint in “KBC.”

Bachchan was delighted to see his college again, and the love and affection the students showed for him made him extremely happy and emotional. He went a shade teary-eyed while watching the video. The audience present on set also started signing birthday wishes for him and the mega star's favorite guitarist Niladri Kumar also performed for him, making it one of the most special birthday celebrations for the veteran actor.
