The actor, who has connected with several fans over his four decade-long dedication to showbiz, is looking forward to the new show, and added that it "will be a thoroughly entertaining show, but has its heart in the right place".
Uday Shankar, CEO, STAR India, says "Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi", will "not only entertain but also inspire individuals and leave them with a reason to smile".
“Our vision has been to inspire a billion imaginations and we have aimed to do that with every content offering we bring forth as a network. With 'Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi', we have once again collaborated with the biggest superstar of the country Amitabh Bachchan for a unique project on Indian television," Shankar said.
To tease fans about the show, Amitabh has posted the link to a 30-second video on his Twitter page.
He can be seen making the dull and boring ride of an elevator interesting by breaking into an impromptu gig. He is seen dancing and prancing around in an elevator in a track suit with foot-tapping beats in the background.
