So what will be new this season?
For starters, the show will have only 30-35 episodes spanning over a time-frame of six weeks. The makers have revealed that this is done intentionally to make KBC an annual affair.
The prize money has been set at a whopping 7 crore – this will be the last question, the second-last being for 1 crore.
This season of KBC will have no film promotions but will see brave-hearts from different walks of life present with Big B, sharing their experiences and raising awareness.
Another exciting feature will be that the viewers will get to play along with the contestants on TV on their phones! A hot seat, right on your own sofa!
There will be an introduction of a new lifeline called ‘Jodidaar’ that will let the contestant bring a friend of relative to guide him or her for a question. Also, the phone-a-friend lifeline is going to become video-call-a-friend.
The show will go on air on August 28. All set?
