Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan is currently the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 12, which is not only making people rich but the tagline ” Setback ka Jawab comeback se do” is bringing us lots of heroic stories after the pandemic hit the country.
While KBC’s perfect host Amitabh Bachchan eagerly listens and understands the life happenings of his contestants the viewers get a treat when Big B shares his life experiences with the people. In a recent episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, Bachchan shared his long time wish to visit his ancestral home Babu Patti in Uttar Pradesh and after the show was aired on Television, the villagers are filled with joy and are eagerly waiting for their favorite Amitabh Bachchan.
The Kaun Banega Crorepati episode that aired on October 20 had a rollover contestant, Ankita Singh, from Bhilai, Chattisgarh on the hot seat. Ankita called her uncle in Uttar Pradesh for help when she used the ‘Video-Call-A-Friend’ lifeline.
The uncle, in his turn, spoke to the Bachchan and urged him to visit his ancestral village.
The superstar said that he had recently discussed the idea with his family in Mumbai — of visiting Babu Patti. He also expressed his desire to build a school for the children of the village.
As soon as the Babu Patti residents heard Big B’s wish, they have started preparations for his grand welcome. Removing garbage and some even getting their houses whitewashed — because everyone is eagerly awaiting superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s visit to Babu Patti — the megastar’s ancestral village.
Amitabh Bachchan’s ancestral village-Babu Patti
Bachchan’s father and well-known litterateur Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s parents, Pratap Narain Srivastava and Saraswati Devi Srivastava lived in their ancestral home in Babu Patti.
The village has a library named after late Harivansh Rai Bachchan that was inaugurated by Samajwadi Party MP and Amitabh’s better half Jaya Bachchan and a close aide at one time late Amar Singh in 2006.
The locals have always cherished the fact the megastar Amitabh Bachchan belongs to their village and they have even painted a thanksgiving message on the wall for Amar Singh for bringing Jaya Bachchan to Babu Patti. A larger-than-life painting of Jaya Bachchan and Amar Singh is kept in the library which also has the famous ‘Agneepath’ poem painted on the wall.
Next to the library, is a Neem tree that often finds a mention in late Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s literary works. The tree has a small temple, built by one of the members of the extended family.
The villagers are anxiously waiting for their Superstar, trying to give him and his family a perfect welcome at his ancestral home but Big B hasn’t announced when he will be visiting Babu Patti.
