In the aftermath of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, presenter Amitabh Bachchan got involved in a flirtatious banter with candidate Namrata Shah on Wednesday evening. The two complimented each other and at one point he asked the producer to stop the show because he wanted to invite her for a cup of tea.
Amitabh said, “Producer ji, yeh karyakram bandh karo, mujhe Namrata ji ke saath chai peene jaana hai (please stop the show, I want to have a cup of tea with Namrata).” Then he told her he would be happy to on a date, but her husband Ajay Shah and son Krutarth were in the audience.
“Patidev, putra sun rahe hai, isliye thoda sa chai ki hi baat boli hai. Varna bhojan-vojan khilane le jaata main restaurant aapko (your husband and son are listening, so I only suggested you have a cup of tea. Otherwise I would have invited you to dinner in a restaurant) “he called.
When Namrata shyly asked Amitabh if she could call him ‘Amit ji’, he couldn’t stop blushing. He asked her to just call him ‘Amit’.
“Ab itna bolne ke baad chai peene jayenge toh Amit ji bolengi aap? Amit bolengi na! ‘Amit, chalo chai pilane le chalo, yaar.’ Kuch aise bolengi na aap? Ji-vi kaat dijiye, hum uss laayak nahi hai Don’t call me ‘Ji’, I’m not worth it) ”he said.
