Sakshi Tanwar is probably the only TV celebrity to have been on the hot seat of Kaun Banega Crorepati for four seasons. She first appeared on the show with Shweta Kawatra, later with Smriti Irani and last two seasons Sakshi has been appearing with Ram Kapoor.
And yet, Sakshi says, “The apprehension, anticipation and excitement were all the same.”
And this time it was even special, as her parents had flown in to witness her big moment.
”It was a very special moment for me to have my parents among the audience and witness me on the hot seat, especially when Mr Bachchan asked my father how he felt seeing me. My father’s reply, ‘Pehle who meri beti ke naam se jani jathi thi, aab mein iske nam se jana jata hoon’ got me all emotional,” says the actress. Another moment she recalls fondly was, while welcoming them on the show, Bachchan showered both Ram and her with praises like bade ache lagate hai! When Ram said that Big B was showering more praises on Sakshi, the reply from the courteous host was, “Women need more assurance and we must tell them so.”
No wonder, Sakshi takes pride in believing her good fortune has been to sit with the mega star on the hot seat so many times, a feat not many celebrities have accomplished.
The episode is slated to be aired next week.
