Taking to their official social media handle, Sony Television Entertainment released a sneak peek, captioned, ''Chalegi hockey, chalega bhala, #KBC13 mein Neeraj, Sreejesh aur AB sir ke sang dikhega game Olympic wala! Zaroor dekhiyega yeh romanchak pal #KaunBanegaCrorepati '', into the exciting episode featuring the two biggest sportspersons of the country, Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra and Hockey player PR Sreejesh. In the video, Bachchan brought out a Hockey stick and a Javelin and asked the athletes to share some of the tips to learn their sport. 

The 23-year-old Olympic medalist Neeraj Chopra showed the three different grips used to throw the Javelin and also showed his preferred ones to the veteran actor. The duo also shared a laugh together as the young player stated, ''Main aapko phek ke dikha deta par...'' (I would have demonstrated my throw here..) to which Bachchan was quick to discourage the idea saying, ''Sir, bilkul mat kijiye sir'' (Please do not do it, sir). This earned a round of laughter from the audience.
