Megastar Amitabh Bachchan announced that reality TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati will return to the telly world soon. He has already started recording registration questions for it.

Amitabh's announcement comes at a time when there was a buzz that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might come on board to host the new season of the widely popular general knowledge-based game show.

"KBC has gracefully agreed to reappear and in doing so has coerced me into recording the Registration Questions for the contest that will be on air by August-September this year," the 74-year-old actor posted on his blog.

The show was first aired in 2000, changing the face of Indian television and giving Amitabh a new lease of life in showbiz.

Recalling the experience of being the host, Amitabh wrote: "KBC. The winner from its beginnings. To me at least was to mingle with them that come with ambition and desire, with hope and of course the ultimate desire of spending those hours on the Hot Seat, with complete strangers who by the time it ends become your dearest friends."

"May the fruits of friendships grow. May the winner be ecstatic. May he or she be deserving and above all, may the wishes of they that come be delivered in a bounty."
