Mumbai: actor Riteish Deshmukh and his wife Genelia D’Souza The ‘Shaandaar Friday’ episode of reality quiz show “Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) 13” directed by Amitabh Bachchan will have a special guest on Friday, October 8 night. The actor will be seen sharing his industry experience and lesser known facts about him in a conversation with Big B.
Genelia talks about her first commercial where she got the opportunity to share screen space with the living legend – Amitabh Bachchan. They take a trip down memory lane and talk about the time when they shot together and Big B requested a close-up of Genelia and not his own.
Riteish credits Big B for his marriage with Genelia, saying: “If you hadn’t kept the close-up that day, we wouldn’t have got married. Because of the close-up, he and I made our first film together. of. All because of that one close-up you put in.” He was referring to his 2003 film ‘Tujhe Meri Kasam’.
Bachchan described Riteish as a “perfectionist”, after revealing that he had trained to become an architect.
The highlight of the show is when Riteish proposes to Genelia in a real film style. He gets down on his knees to seduce Genelia, repeating dialogues from Amitabh Bachchan’s iconic films.
Riteish gives a clever twist to Bachchan’s famous line ‘Kalia’ (1981): “We stand where we stand, the line starts from where I stand. Riteish to Genelia.” Says: “For me, the line starts from where you become Khadi (for me, the queue starts from where you are).”
The ‘Shaandaar Friday’ episode of ‘KBC 13’ will air on Sony Entertainment Television.
