As Amitabh Bachchan gears up to don the quiz master’s hat once again for ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati‘, the shows undergo a few changes in tune with the changing times. The show, in its seventh season, is bigger in terms of its prize money and overall set up. So what are the new things that have been incorporated in the show? Here is the list.
The prize money in the seventh season is whopping Rs 7 crore and the one who wins the prize money will, aptly, be called ‘Mahacrorepati’. They have made the road to the hot seat a bit tougher. The fastest finger first will now have three questions instead of one. The first one to answer all three questions correctly will get to sit on the hot seat.
Once on the hot seat, the participant will have to answer 15 questions instead of 12 which were asked earlier. The last four questions of the game show will be called ‘Sapta koti sandook’ that will let contestants win from Rs 1 crore to Rs 3 crore, Rs 5 crore and finally Rs 7 crore.
Contestants will have new five lifelines now. While ‘audience poll’ and ‘phone a friend’ will continue as lifelines, ‘flip the question’ will return in place of ‘ask the expert’. ’50:50′ will replace ‘double dip’. The latest addition is ‘power paplu’. It will help to revive any used lifeline.
KBC now has a brand new set with some new interesting elements. The earlier set was similar to the set of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ on which the show is based. The show is now be shot at Yash Raj Films Studio while earlier it was shot in Filmcity.
The show which started in 2000, is based on the theme, “seekhna band to jeetna band” this year.
