Puneeth Rajkumar is all set for his upcoming Santhosh Ananddram's Yuva Rathna. While he is shooting for the film, he will return as the host of Kannadada Kotiyadipathi for Colors, the Kannada version of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
Having hosted the show in 2011-12, Puneeth is happy to return to the host chair. And the reason for that according to him is, "It is a show through which I get to meet people from different parts of Karnataka, and get to listen to so many different stories. In general, I am a person who likes talking to people, and this gives me an opportunity to interact with them and know the kind of life they lead and how important money is to them."
Before he hosted the show for the first time he got the opportunity to meet Amitabh Bachchan on the sets of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Recollecting that experience Puneeth said, "I will never forget his gesture, where he actually, during breaks, introduced me to the audience over there. He also mentioned that I will be hosting the show in Karnataka. He also told them that he has known me since I was a baby and had carried me and played with me then. He had a couple of words to say about my dad too. Though we did not have a one-on-one discussion about the show, it was an immense pleasure to see the aura built around this person, who is called the biggest superstar of our country.”
