"Success, if any, has come due to
consistency and commitment."
On certain days quizmaster Sidharth Basu can be having his
breakfast, lunch and dinner at three different cities and still be
ready with his disarming smile for a camera shot.
For quiz master Siddharth Basu success is no big
deal. A person who has anchored, produced and directed dozens of hit
quiz shows including Kaun Banega Crorepati, Basu is a modest
man. "Exposure hasnít meant much other than the
opportunities it opens up. Success, if any, has come due to
consistency and commitment. Itís been a steady graph."
Basuís production house Synergy Communications
has done Quiz Time, Spectrum, Bean StalkQuiz, Mastermind India.
However, its biggest success to date has been Amitabh Bachchan
anchored KBC. Says Basu, " Itís been 26 years of work,
work and work."
Siddharth Basuís mentor/idol is theatre person
Barry John who also designs his sets. " To me he is a teacher
and a stage artist. He is a guru who taught by example and
Basu says his de-stressing happens " with the
family, watching TV, listening to music, sharing a good laugh and
taking a walk."
