New Delhi, Dec 7 Meeting small-town India on Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), the hugely popular game show, has left him with a sense of inadequacy – of not being able to do enough for people – but it has also been exceptionally rewarding, says Amitabh Bachchan, who confirms that he will host the sixth season of the TV programme as well.

“I feel we are so unaware of what the ‘real India’ is all about,” Bachchan admits.

The 69-year-old iconic Indian actor, whose feet most KBC participants touched reverentially, is taking a break from work right now. He revealed in an e-mail interview with IANS that the Nov 16 birth of his granddaughter – the child of son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya – has caused everyone in the Bachchan household to adjust their time around “the little one”.
