Mumbai: Superstar Amitabh Bachchan will host the fifth season of the popular reality game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.

"Preparing now for KBC next season starting I think in a few months... creative and promo discussions are done ... very interesting," Bachchan confirmed on micro-blogging site Twitter on Sunday.

KBC is an Indian reality game show based on the UK game show 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’

The 68 years old actor made his first TV debut as a host of KBC which first aired in 2000.

The game show became a huge rage with Amitabh hosting its first and second seasons.

Following this, superstar Shah Rukh Khan was roped in for the third. But Big B returned to anchor the show's fourth season.
