When the contestant picked option B, the fake Amitabh said it was correct. The video focused on Amitabh, but the words and lip movements didn’t match. The question was added to the video in the usual KBC style.
Not the first incident
This isn’t the first time Sony TV has warned about fake videos. Before, there was a video with a fake voiceover of Amitabh asking a bad question about Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The fake voice in Hindi asked, “Which chief minister is called an announcement minister because of their fake announcements?” The options were: Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, and Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel.
Choosing Shivraj, the fake voice said it was correct. Currently, KBC is in its 15th season.
