The 70-year-old plays the quiz master in the popular game show and has been associated with it from its inception in 2000, except for the third season in 2007 when superstar Shah Rukh Khan took over as the host.
"The rehearsals for KBC have begun, the team is in its elements, and the excitement of yet another season draws near. It all began in the year 2000, and that makes it an association of 13 years with the game show. That is some time period," Big B posted on his blog.
Bachchan hopes that he continues to get the appreciation from his fans and the audience for this season as well.
"The love and the affection of the people have been with me all along and I do hope that it shall continue as we set about it all over again," he posted.
Apart from KBC, he will also be seen in director Prakash Jha's "Satyagraha". The political drama has been shot in Bhopal and will be released Aug 23.
