Amitabh BachchanAmitabh Bachchan, Anurag Kashyap's television venture

Amitabh Bachchan has carved his place on the small screen as the host of reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Even as the game show returns for the six season, the megastar is all set to make a debut in a television series which will be directed by Anurag Kashyap.

Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog: "Sony and us had a press conference to day to announce my participation in a TV serial which starts to shoot in a week ten days. This is a fresh initiative and one that I felt I needed to explore, so there it is. It is being produced by Endemol and Saraswati Creations, and has its creativity in the hands of Anurag Kashyap ..

The idea really is to do something out and away from the groove, with great production values and to make it more finite and watchable. It is another first for me and I look towards it with great anticipation, and apprehension, as we do mostly whenever something new needs to be initiated. I do hope that this comes to you with appropriate likeness, and I do hope that we are able to do justice to this. With all your blessings and care of course "
