With the promise of a #NewBeginning, Kaun Banega Crorepati will capture the essence of the progress that India is making, bringing forth some remarkable changes that will make the game play tougher and far more engaging.
Talking about ‘badlav’ in this season, one of the exciting new additions to the show is the introduction of the ‘Super Sandook’, which adds thrill to the game, providing a much-required respite that allows the contestant to revive what has been lost.
The second significant change is ‘Desh Ka Sawal’, which will drive more audience participation. Along with Video Call a Friend and Audience Poll, a new lifeline called ‘Double Dip’ has been added to the format and this season also brings back the adrenaline-pumping Fastest Finger First feature. A sleeker show-set brings together all these changes, lending itself to this fast-paced gameplay that will masterfully be executed by host Amitabh Bachchan.
