Because of money problem Amitabh had to sell his big car, he himself shared the sad story
In the platform of Kaun Banega Crorepati, audiences get to hear about the exciting stories of the participants. Sometimes, hearing their stories, host Amitabh Bachchan also shares some of the stories related to his own life. In the recently telecasted show of KBC 10, one contestant was asked regarding the first model of Maruti Suzuki.
After the answer from the contestant, Amitabh Bachchan shared real story from his life. He said that Maruti 800 is the first model of Maruti Suzuki which was launched during 1983. He subsequently asked the contestant if he had purchased this model.
Taking the conversation forward, Big B shared that he was very fond of driving cars and he even used to get dreams about driving big cars. Subsequently, he made money in the films and he purchased a costly car which was really big. During the course of time, his financial condition deteriorated but his fondness for driving cars never diminished.
During the financial crunch, he had to sell his big car which was very close to his heart. Subsequently he purchased a Maruti 800 and he admitted that he used to love driving that car. One big advantage was that, nobody used to recognise him when he used to drive that car. He also commented that when Bollywood stars try to hide their identities they often deploy the same trick.
During the conversation, Amitabh Bachchan also shared some story about Rajesh Khanna. He mentioned that Rajesh Khanna was a real superstar and he was fortunate to work with him in number of films. Rajesh Khanna used to come to the shooting by driving a small car. By seeing him, Amitabh Bachchan also thought of purchasing a small car for himself.
