'KBC' new season to have Rs 7 cr prize money

Mumbai, Aug 30, 2013 (PTI):

The seventh season of popular game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan is back with an aim to make people aware of the importance of continued learning.

The central theme of the seventh season is 'Seekhna Bandh Toh Jeetna Bandh'.
The show will have some changes this time - there will be 15 questions, the ultimate winning amount has been raised to Rs seven crore, new lifeline 'power paplu' introduced with which contestant can revive any of the already used lifeline, fastest finger fast round now becomes best out of three and the winner at the end enters the hot seat.

"With all the new offering the show this year is bigger, better and brighter. The show is reborn, rejuvenated and is innovative. Our aim is to up the general knowledge quotient as well," Siddhartha Basu, chairman and managing director of Big Synergy Media Ltd, told reporters here. Also, there will be a new set and location of the show.


"The show has been shifted from Filmcity in Goregaon to Yash Raj Films studio in Andheri. This is primarily because the infrastructure is better and it has nothing to do with Mr Bachchan's health. This new place is far better. We wanted to do the last season also there but couldn't as the shoot for 'Dhoom 3' was under progress," Sneha Rajani, senior EVP and business head, Sony Entertainment Television, said.

Bachchan will be hosting the show yet again and is excited about the entirely new experience.
"I am afraid of the questions asked by the media... There are times when I am not aware of it (question) and there are times when we don't have an answer," he said.

The show goes on air from September 6 on Sony channel from Friday to Sunday at 8.30 pm.
