Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra and bronze medallist Indian Hockey Team’s goalkeeper PR Sreejesh will grace the upcoming Friday celebrity special episode of hit game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. In the ‘Shaandaar Shukravaar’ episode of ‘KBC13’, the two sports stalwarts Neeraj Chopra and P.R. Sreejeesh will be seen playing for charity and having a gala time while sharing anecdotes about their struggle and how they turned overcame obstacles in life to climb the ladder of success.
In what seems like to be a fun-filled episode from its promos, Neeraj along with Sreejesh will be seen sharing some light moments with host and megastar Amitabh Bachchan as they teach him to speak Haryanvi.
In the latest promo shared by Sony Entertainment Television of their Instagram handle, Amitabh Bachchan can be seen reciting his famous dialogue ‘Main Aur Meri Tanhai’ from his hit film ‘Silsila’. As Big B recites the lines, he does it in with a few pauses so as to give Neeraj time to translate them in Haryanvi.
While Neeraj does a fabulous job of translating the lines of the dialogue in Haryanvi, the accent leaves Amitabh Bachchan and the audience in splits. The innocence with which Neeraj translates the dialogue wins over the audience who break into applause for the Olympic Gold medallist.
As the video progresses, PR Sreejesh is seen asking Amitabh Bachchan if he has ever acted in a Haryanvi film. Big B says he hasn’t but shares that once he had to speak Haryanvi in one of his films and he found it very difficult. Then Sreejesh is heard telling Big B that Neeraj and he would teach him to speak the language.
Neeraj is then heard saying a line in Hindi, “Yeh tumhare baap ka ghar nahi police station hai, seedhe khade raho’. And then he translates it in Haryanvi and asks Big B to repeat. The megastar follows Neeraj’s cue to perfection and nails the dialogue in her own style.
