It's a game show where the contestants are made to sit on the hot seat and asked questions. Based on your knowledge, you win the prize money.
The serial has reached its tenth season with Bollywood’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan. The last season was a rocking one on the BARC charts and if it’s anything to go by, this season will be equally watched by people. Earlier the teaser was unveiled by Sony Entertainment Television which touched everyone’s heart with its message and of course, Big B’s charm that is unquestionable.
In an official statement, Sony said, ‘’Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is about the power of knowledge.

Have a look at the pictures below:
Danish Khan, Business Head, Sony said: 20 years of KBC will be completed in September. Since 2010 the show is with Sony TV we are delighted that the show is with us and hopefully will stay with us. The only person we thought as correct host was Amitabh Bachchan. The only person and other guiding light is Siddharth Basu. This year we have changes. Sony TV is the co-producer this year. Sony TV Studios is starting journey as co-producer with Synergy. This show brings entire family together. The core audience is young and the language is Hindi which Big B is eloquent in.
Ashish of Sony TV said also said : We have many new things this year. Knowledge is the heart of the show and it is something that has reigned supreme in India. There will some cosmetic changes on superficial level. The biggest change is augmented reality. It is a technological jargon. What you saw in form of graphics, you will see on the sets in a virtual form. We have build a capacity to create augmented reality pieces. The gear is very expensive and we have invested in it. The level of GK is high this time even from starting rounds.
Siddharth Basu, Producer, said: Want to thank Danish and the creative team for the hard work whether it is augmented reality. It is first time on Indian TV. The look and feel is rejuvenated too. The format will play out differently there will be video call with authors journalist and academics. There is the dhanalaya than the dhan vrishk. This time contestant selection was designed in a way that we quizzed them more. We have audio clues as well
on the whole we have in reflective way a kaleidoscopic mirror of India across states, occupations and demographics. This year the kind of people is remarkable. People from underprivileged backgrounds doing masters etc. It was a brave decision not to plug films. We see same stars across channels promoting same film. We have people who made a difference. We have people like Afroz Shah, Kailash Satyarthi. This time we have KBC Karamveer.
Amitabh Bachchan said: It is the contestant who is the soul of the show. I feel great amount of joy when I see them do well. It is remarkable to see how they change their lives in an hour. I feel bad when people make a mistake and lose the money. Many times we do two episodes in a day. Every time it get late I wonder why I cannot spend the night here. I love this set and place.
Big B on his personal kab Tak rokoge moment: What you just heard as a recitation is not just for me but for common man. He has the spirit of trying despite his obstacles. Ek line pakadke koi chale one will find his destination. It is unfair if I talk about personal experience. The poem is a great one to provoke people and makes one aggressive in approach towards life. All of us have incentive in life difficult to narrate all of them have gather here to push the dreams of the common man. I don’t believe that I am the trendsetter of Bollywood actors entering TV. I hope to continue working as long as body allows. We as a country face challenges there are 150 200 years ahead of us. We have been an independent country since 70 years and we have done remarkably well.
Big B on people seeing him as a family member on the show: I can’t do apne muuh miyaan mithoo. I can’t answer this. I feel like I make many mistakes in life.
About Aaradhya liking KBC: Have not had the chance to play KBC with Aaradhya. Will start playing with her. She knows about it and likes the background music. In her school there are quizzes too.
On his health and social causes: I am associated with a number of social causes. I have been struggling with hepatitis since 1982. In 2006, it was discovered that it ate up 75 per cent of my liver. I joined the campaign so that people do tests. I was not aware, it is sclerosis of liver. Similarly with tuberculosis. Lot of moral issues I hate talking about charities. Farmer suicides bother me immensely. I read people dying due to loans. I contacted people and saved families. What has recently disturbed me is death of our soldiers at the frontier we have identified 44 families we have prepared 112 drafts of a crore of rupees to aid families- 60 per cent goes to wife, 20 per cent to father. I am paying 1.25 cr to farmer families. I went to my bank Bank of India got list of farmer loans and paid them off. Other campaigns take time to fructify. We had a lot of obstacles in the polio drive. We need to be careful. We have to be sure on a personal level it happens quick.
On new actors: I am very impressed by Alia, Anushka and Deepika. Scared of working with them. They will eat me up. All new actors are brilliant, we are still trying to fine-tune. These people are so confident. Ranbir, Rajkummar, Varun, Kartik Aryan was so good in Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety. I’m so obsessed, I send them flowers.
On Salman Khan showing interest to host KBC: I will invite him to come on the show.
On acting in a web-series: I don’t have the capacity to create. I don’t mind acting on a digital platform.
