I’ve been watching KBC since it started. One common thing that all participants share is that they bow happily to Amitabh like he is some superior being. They bend and walk, they bend while shaking hands. They’re backs are constantly bent in his presence. I have seen all these years, when a poor guy(with low self-esteem) meets the rich/powerful guy, he always arches his back to lower himself. I think this is a unique indian trait.

Not only that, they also repeatedly call him “sir”. Even middle age contestants do that. Amitabh himself would not want to be called that. This is the contestants fault. I have seen some contestants who are confident, do not bow and I appreciate it. I hope the others were like them. This is the media has elevated amitabh to god status. It is time we treated celebrities like celebrities, not demi gods.

Hold on for another post- Why the new KBC sucks!
