KBC seventh season launched with changes

Mumbai, Aug 30 : The popular game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati", hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, is back and this time it's bigger and better.


The jackpot prize in the "Kaun Banega Crorepati 2013" will be Rs.7 crore and participants will have to answer 15 questions to win the whopping prize money.

There will be four questions in the new feature "Sapta koti sandook" that will let contestants win from Rs. 1 crore to Rs. 3 crore, Rs. 5 crore and finally Rs. 7 crore.

Entering the hot seat has become more challenging as 'Fastest finger first' round has been modified. It will now be called 'Best out of three'.

That's not all. Five, instead of four, lifelines will help contestants to reach closer to prize money. 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.

The show, which has "seekhna bandh toh jeetna bandh" as central theme, will go on air on Sony Entertainment Television Sep 6.

Along with modifications in the game, the show's set has also been changed.

"It has been shifted from Filmcity in Goregaon here to Yash Raj Films studio in Andheri West. The infrastructure is better. In Filmcity, if it rains hard you have to stop shooting. If generator can't take load, then also you have to stop," Siddhartha Basu, chairman and managing director of Big Synergy Media Ltd., told IANS.

The show, based on international quiz show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", started in 2000.
