Kaun banega crorepati this time? Who will get to sit on the hot seat and take questions from computerji? How many will meet the greatest Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan this time? These are some million dollar questions!
Its time to brush up your knowledge and current affairs. You are about to be bombarded with questions soon. Because KBC is back! Don’t worry if you are not confident enough with your answers. Audience poll, double dip and phone a friend are here to help you out. You can ask for an advice of an expert as well, which nearly turns out to be correct every time. The countdown has already begun. That too in a style. Mr. Bachchan has already started hiccoughing in the advertisements! So many Indians want to see him on their favourite television game show of all time.
When the show was telecasted for the first time on Star Plus, people became glued to their television sets at night. Long queues were formed outside STD booths to answer the question to become the lucky one to participate in the show. Gradually the final amount increased to 2 crore. Then the latest winning amount till last season was 5 crore. Sushil Kumar answered the jackpot question and became the first ever to win 5 crore in the show. His was a rag to riches story which inspired a lot of others from smaller villages to come to the show.
Is it the show itself that inspires people to watch it? Is it the jackpot prize that people crave the most? Or is it Amitabh’s style and charisma? His down-to-earth attitude with the participants? His way of saying salaam-namaste-adab-sat sri akal?
Many shows have come and faded with each passing year. Shahrukh Khan hosted ‘Zor Ka Jhatka’ on NDTV which could not give any real jhatka to the audience. He also hosted ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain?’ which was based on American TV show ‘Are you smarter than a 5th grader?’ It never went for a second season. Abhishek Bachchan tried following his father’s footsteps by hosting the show ‘National Bingo Night’. It just wasn’t good enough for the viewers.
KBC has managed to win in the race for TRPs in every season. Lets hope the show continues to be in this season as well ( season 6 ). With the presence of the Bollywood Superstar, the show promises to be a good one this time as well. The list of crorepatis is about to increase………watch out!
