You’re probably already gearing up to watch Amitabh Bachchan on Kaun Banega Crorepati, but now the actor is taking his television career a step further. Rumours had been floating around earlier that he would act in a television show, and yesterday, he formally announced the project.

Still, though, there is much secrecy surrounding the project and Big B didn’t reveal much. What we do know is that it’s a fictional story based on social issues, with Anurag Kashyap as the creative director. Amitabh will be acting in the series, and his company will be co-producing it. The series, which will air on Sony TV, is set to go on floors in December.

Sounds like a pretty big project, and it does mark Big B’s debut in fictional television so all eyes will be on this one. Are you looking forward to it?
