ON A HIGH Vasanth can't get over his KBC experience

There is something more for Bangloreans to boast about now. Vasant Balakrishnan, a young software engineer, was on television in Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) last night. Vasanth answered the questions confidently and is also the roll over contestant who will again be on your television sets tonight.How does it feel? "It's an exhilarating experience. I was not at all a fan of Shah Rukh Khan. But he has simply bowled me over. Never once did he behave like a star and was always reassuring me," says Vasanth in a telephonic interview to MetroPlus. How did he get into the show? "It was through a scheme introduced by Airtel. And I'm glad I got this once in a lifetime chance," adds the man, who had decided to gamble his winnings in Las Vegas. Shah Rukh not only advised him against it but also made him promise that he won't do that. Another thing that touched Vasanth was the actor's simplicity as "he was so amused with my profession as a software guy into the field of coding," says the boy who even asked the star to give him a massage! "That's right. He told me `ask for a massage or water or anything' and I opted for a massage as I thought that would relieve me of my tension."Vasanth is on a high as the star compared him to Hrithik Roshan and even asked him if he had muscles like him. The star called Vasanth a Rockstar as "I sang an old film number for him". In case you missed all the action and the popular massage, just tune into Star Plus tonight and watch the Bangalore boy do us proud. S.S.R.
