Recalling the experience of being the host, Amitabh wrote: "KBC. The winner from its beginnings. To me at least was to mingle with them that come with ambition and desire, with hope and will and of course the ultimate desire of spending those hours at the Hot Seat, with complete strangers who by the time it ends become your dearest friends."

"May the fruits of friendships grow. May the winner be ecstatic. May he or she be deserving and above all, may the wishes of they that come, be delivered in a bounty."
