2 Decades ,Season 12 : Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati makes a comeback on Sept 28

Kaun Banega Crorepati, one of the most intriguing and engaging game shows of India, is set to premiere on September 28th. Amitabh Bachchan, the only man who can pull off the role of the host effortlessly, is now set to host the 12th season of KBC and it will mark his two-decade association with the show
The return of this most loved show amid the ongoing pandemic is welcome news, but it has its challenges. Keeping in mind, the government-mandated restrictions, the makers have decided to not host an in-house audience. KBC without an audience is going to be different, especially since one of the lifelines involves the audience. “Audience poll” is a lifeline that a player can use whenever he needs help, but without an audience, there is no question of seeking help. This has been around for many years and has helped a lot of players progress in the game. But, as we all know, desperate times call for desperate measures. 

The lifeline will now be replaced with a new lifeline, called “Video-A-Friend”. The contestant on the hot-seat can avail this lifeline and video call a friend. There would be the same 60-seconds clock running and the other lifelines, Ask the expert, flip the question and 50-50 will remain unchanged. Some more changes have been made to follow the protocols. The fastest finger first round, which usually had 10 contestants, will now have 8. The distance between the hot-seat and the host-seat will be higher than usual. This is to reduce the number of people on set. 


The introduction videos that were usually shot from the contestants’ respective homes and cities will now be shot by themselves because the crew couldn’t travel. Even though there are a lot of hurdles in organizing the show the way it used to be, the channel is trying its best to bring the audiences the best experience they can.


KBC 12 is going to begin from Monday, 28th September at 9 PM IST on Sony TV, and viewers living in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore , Malaysia and Europe can watch it on YuppTV.
