KBC WITH KING KHAN

Help patient B. SUBASH

Star TV  invited our young patients to the sets of their popular game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. These 15 kids had the most eventful day with a memorable rendezvous with the "King" Shahrukh Khan himself. They presented him with a specially made canvas urging him to quit smoking, while singing his favourite song 'Kal ho na ho...'. An emotional Shahrukh promised the kids that he would try to quit. They were then invited to see the filming of the day's episode and presented with gifts from Star TV. The episode is to be telecast on 26th March 2007 at 9:00 p.m
