3 years ago

Mumbai: Every time we hear Panchkoti Mahamoney or Ghadiyaal Babu, megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s image, hosting the TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), flashes in our minds. Ever wondered who is the man behind these iconic dialogues? Well it’s RD Tailang who has been instrumental in making the show liveliest possible through his marvelous pen work.

Tailang has been an integral part of the show from its beginning, writing scripts for Mr Bachchan and one time host Shahrukh Khan. He also penned dialogues for films like Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Arjun: The Warrior Prince. His job on the show is to make a remarkable beginning and aspiring end.

The sixth season of the show is soon to roll out and Big B has already started rehearsing for it. When Tailang was asked about his experience with the two stars, he said, “Bachchan ji has the mix of seriousness as well as humour. He emphasizes a lot on diction and when he talks. Even his simple line like, ‘yuh gaya aur yuh aaya‘ turn effective. Shahrukh Khan made the most of his ability to make people laugh. He was engaging, cool and represented youth.”

He was also warned by the megastar himself of the punctuations during the early days of the show. So now when you hear Bachchan mouthing such dialogues, remember that they are all from Tailang.
