Melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar says that she was in tears after hearing Bollywood megastar and TV host Amitabh Bachchan reciting the parting lines at the grand finale of the season 8 of his popular show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (KBC 8).

The 85-year-old singer took to her Twitter page on 17 May to share the excitement over the grand finale of "KBC 8". In her message posted on Twitlonger, Mangeshkar expressed her feelings over Bachchan's performance in the last episode of the show.

Here is the English version of Mangeshkar's Hindi message posted on Twitlonger. "Hello. I was watching the last episode of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. Govinda, Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Parineeti Chopra and Ronit Roy were also present on the episode. The show was very nice."

Mangeshkar continued and praised Bachchan. "As usual, Amit ji made it a brilliant episode. He concluded the show by reciting a few lines 'mohobbat karnewale kam na honge, teri mehfil mein lekin hum na honge'. The moment he recited the lines, my eyes were filled with tears."

Meanwhile, Mangeshkar ended her message wishing Bachchan good health. "@SrBachchan Amit ji I have a very special place for you in my heart. I respect you a lot. May god keep you happy always and healthy and give a long life. These are my best wishes. Tathastu."

Bachchan was busy shooting for Shoojit Sircar's "Piku" in Kolkata, when he saw Mangeshkar's tweet. Big B immediately took to his Twitter page and thanked her for the warm wishes. "Lata ji... I am at a loss for words. I don't know how to thank you enough. I am grateful for your blessings."

However, season 8 of "Kaun Banega Crorepati", which was made with the tagline 'Yahan Sirf Paise Nahi, Dil Bhi Jeete Jate Hain', went live on air on 17 August. The season ended on 6 November and its grand finale was aired in two episodes on 9 and 16 November.
