Kaun Banega Crorepati - KBC - is an Indian television game show broadcasted on Sony TV. Readapted from the famous British TV Show - Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Amitabh Bachchan has taken this show to new heights in India.
The Director Arun Sheshkumar saw the buggy being used in a cricket match and envisioned a shot at KBC that even we at Quidich had never imagined. Once the buggy was on set, the director and DOP, both took it on as a challenge to push the operators and design shots that had never been seen before in general entertainment. Eventually, some of the most iconic shots ended up being on the BuggyQam, from the opening shot bringing the super star Amitabh Bachchan on stage, to the shot of where the participant became a crorepati, and the BuggyQam went around the hot seat in multiple 360 rounds. Sudhir (DOP) and Arun (Director) Were really able to conceptualize something unique.
“With the tight space on the KBC set, we had to operate the BuggyQam on pure instincts at times, but soon the director gained confidence with the way we manoeuvred and started calling for shots from the buggy impromptu.”
