Replacing the Big B

Not just being satisfied with having donned the rold of Amitabh in Don, now Shah Rukh is going to take his seat in KBC too. This is sad news for all those KBC lovers who were held spell bound with Amitabh's antics and baritone voice. The show rose to be one among the top ten, mostly owing to Big B's charisma and presentation.

I am not sure how much will Shah Rukh be able to replicate Big B in dealing with the people in the hot seat. Definitely, it will be a let down for all those who had stayed glued to the programme. So much so, that even my son, who is a great of fan of KBC, is not happy with the idea of seeing someone other than the BIG B himself. Amitabh is so dear to children too especially with the kind of ads that he gets featured in. No wonder he is the top most brand ambassador in the country who endorses the maximum number of products.

But with rumours agog about his imminent entry into politics, and with his proximity with Amar Singh of Samajwadi party, it will surely be hard for Amitabh to find time. But will he endear himself to people as a politician as he had as an actor? I don't think so.

I don't think SRK can come anywhere near the Big B. SRK may be a good actor, but his diction and dialogue delivery is no patch to Amitabh.
There have been many 'me too' clones of KBC, but none has succeeded. The difference was - Amitabh.

Mid-life crisis for SRK. What else?
