Kaun Banega Crorepati, one of the most popular TV shows, is back with its 14th season. The registration for KBC 2022 is over and soon the show is going to come on TV.
A new promo video of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 14’ is out with a message on ‘Fake News’, where host Amitabh Bachchan can be seen taking a potshot at TV anchor Sudhir Chaudhary and his Aaj Tak counterpart Shweta Singh by reminding their claims on new Rs. 2000 currency notes having an in-built nanochip.
In the video, Amitabh introduced contestant Guddi, to the audience. He then asked her the question, “Which of these has GPS technology in them?” The options were: A) Typewriter, B) Television, C) Satellite and D) ₹2000 note. As Guddi confidently chose option D as her answer, Amitabh asked if she was sure about it.
Laughing, Guddi said in Hindi that not only her but the entire nation knew that the answer is option D. Amitabh next told her that her answer was incorrect and the right answer is satellite. Instead of accepting it, Guddi asked Amitabh if he was joking and he denied it. Amitabh added that it was she who took a joke as the answer to the question.
Guddi said that she had seen it on news and blamed them for her incorrect answer. Amitabh told her, “Nahi nahi ho sakta hai unki ghalti ho lekin nuksaan toh aapka hogaya na (No, maybe it is their fault but it was your loss)?” As Guddi started crying, Amitabh spoke to the camera addressing the viewers, “Gyan jaha se bhi mile bator lijiye par pehle zara tatol lijiye (Before accepting any information verify it at first).”
You must remember that soon after Narendra Modi controversially announced the demonetisation on 8 November 2016, likes of Sudhir Chaudhary and Shweta Singh had gone to town claiming that the new Rs. 2000 note had a hidden nanochip, which could help Income Tax authorities trace the black money even if the currency was hidden 100 meters beneath the earth.
However, later this news turned out to be a rumor and there was no such chip in the two thousand notes. Both Chaudhary and Singh were widely ridiculed for their extraordinary claims that were rejected by the Reserve Bank of India. As soon as the promo video was shared by the official handle of Sony TV, netizens again started trolling the two anchors.
