New Delhi: Siddharth Basu, who brought the international game show “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” in Hindi as “Kaun Banega Crorepati”, is now launching two more versions in Bengali and Bhojpuri. The format of the game will remain the same and under the same production house Big Synergy.

Saurav Ganguly who has already hosted “Dadagiri” on Zee Bangla will be the host of the Bengali version ‘Ke Hobey Banglar Kotipoti' on Mahuaa Bangla from Monday.

"We want to scale new heights and set a benchmark in creating local language content and 'Ke Hobey Banglar Kotipoti' is one such show from the repertoire of exciting programmes," said Yubaraj Bhattacharya, CEO of Mahuaa Bangla.

The actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha will be hosting the Bhojpuri version. Though Shahrukh Khan hosted the third season, Amitabh returned with "KBC 4" and he will continue to host the fifth season as well, which will start in Aug 15.
