Shatrughan Sinha's quiz show in Bhojpuri, 'Kaun Banega Crorepati Bhojpuri', went on air a few days back. The show's aim is not only to entertain but also to promote the ancient language Bhojpuri. As the show is taken from the original KBC, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, comparisons are made between Shatrughan and Amitabh.

Shatru told TOI, “The show has been done for a specific purpose of not only entertaining or making their dream come true, this show could also contribute towards promotion, projection, presentation in the right direction of the great ancient language Bhojpuri, which is spoken by millions of people across the country and abroad as well."

When asked about the comparison, the veteran accepted, "There are a lot of similarities between me and Amitabh. We started off our filmy career at almost the same time and struggled together. We are known for our baritone voice, diction and acting. So I'm not surprised that comparisons are being made."
