Kolkata: Former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly, who will begin hosting the Bengali version of hit quiz show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" from Monday, said he practised for it more than he did for his sport.
"For the first time in my life I have rehearsed for so long. For matches I would practice at the nets for four hours but for this show I rehearsed for six hours," Ganguly said here.
Asked to compare himself with Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan who have hosted "Kaun Bangega Crorepati" (KBC), the Hindi version of the game show, Ganguly said: "They did the show in their styles and I would do it in mine. We all are different and can't be compared. How I fare is up to you to decide when the programmes is telecast".
