Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is set to host the seventh season of gameshow "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (KBC), says he is just a host and doesn't take any credit for the show's popularity.

"I take zero credit. The most important part of the show is the show itself. It's a very well constructed show and not just a simple question and answer thing. Very deep research has gone into it.

"Anybody can run the show. It's running in 127 countries and I am not there in those countries, I am only here in India. There is an intrinsic value in the show," Amitabh Bachchan told IANS in a group interview.


The forthcoming season will for the first time in the history of KBC will have a jackpot prize of Rs7 crores and is all set to get bigger, better and brighter.

"Season 7 will be maha crorepati and this time the prize will be Rs. 7 crores. Its back - bigger, better and brighter with format tweaks," Siddhartha Basu, CMD, Big Synergy Media Ltd, said.

The show will have few changes, including a new lifeline called Power Paplu. The money tree will now consist of 15 questions.  It will also have a brand new set and design elements adding glamour to this fantastic show.

KBC will launch on Sep 6, Friday to Sunday at 8.30 pm on Sony Entertainment Television.
