Amitabh Bachchan revealed that it was his father, legendary writer-poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan who named their home, Pratiksha. The actor was speaking on his game show Kaun Banega Crorepati. He is hosting the fourteenth season of the famous quiz show.

While introducing a contestant, Amitabh realized that he was with his sister Pratiksha. Big B said, “Pratiksha is a very beautiful name.” He added that his father named their house Pratiksha.

Recalling the past days, Amitabh Bachchan added, “People ask me why did you keep your house name Pratiksha, but I convey to them that I did not choose it, my father did. Therefore I questioned my father why did you keep the name Pratiksha, he has a poem where there is a line that goes – ‘swagat sabke liye hain par nahi hain kisi ke liye Pratiksha (It is welcome for all, but wait for none)’.”

He shared his experience of working on KBC14. He wrote, “The resolve is to promote the game and to bring in greater audiences .. and the promo was shot within premises… the most complicated being the control room of KBC with its myriad gadgetry… needs very hard work to bring the show to you and even greater wizardry of electronics.”

He was seen in Brahmastra recently. The movie is directed by Ayan Mukerji. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Mouni Roy in lead roles. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Nagarjuna too. The film received mixed reviews but managed to record the highest collection worldwide in its first weekend.
