Actor Amitabh Bachchan’s quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati is very popular among the audience. In this show, Big B not only asks questions to the participants but is also seen having very interesting discussions. Apart from this, he himself also shares many secrets related to his life. Something similar was seen in the recent episode of the show ‘KBC 15’. Big B revealed what he writes instead of caste in the census form? Let us know…
This is how the discussion of caste started
This time, by winning Fastest Finger, Madhurima became the first contestant to come on the hot seat this week. After welcoming Madhurima, Amitabh Bachchan asked her, ‘Madhurima ji, I don’t know your full name’. To this Madhurima replied, ‘It’s just Madhurima, I have decided that I will not use the surname, because it creates caste discrimination’.
This is why I kept the surname Bachchan
Hearing this from Madhurima, Amitabh Bachchan praised her a lot. Big B further said, ‘My father also kept his pen name i.e. Bachchan as his surname, so that there are no barriers like caste and religion. I also continued this tradition of my parents. Amitabh Bachchan told, ‘When I took admission in school, I got the surname Bachchan written.’
Write ‘Indian’ in the form
Big B further said that he writes ‘Indian’ instead of caste in the census form. He said, ‘When I had to fill the census form, I used to refuse to fill the caste column. If officers asked questions, he would say, ‘I do not belong to any caste, I am an Indian and will always remain an Indian’. Let us tell you, Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 15 airs from Monday to Friday at 9 pm on Sony TV.
