Kaun Banega Crorepati, or KBC as it is popularly known as, is a famous game show in India telecasted on Star Plus. The currently running show is season three of the show, commonly known as KBC-3 or KBC-Tritiya.
The brain behind this show is of the famous quizzing master Siddharth Basu, of the ‘MasterMind India’ fame.
That is an Indian modification of the UK game show “Who would like to be a Millionaire.”
KBC season one was were only available in year 2000 hosted kbcreal.com by Mr.Amitabh Bhachchan and was a large hit on the list of Indian audience.
The growing season one was gracefully taken off air with a promise by Mr.Bachchan of returning.
Season two, popularized as KBC dwitiya saw some changes than the previous KBC, but was shortly removed air as a result of host’s health issues.
Though it was believed that another commencement will be done by the one and only Mr.Bachchan himself, that can compare with the previous two seasons, the audience was amazed to start to see the BadShah of Bollywood in the host’s seat of KBC season three.
ShahRukh brought alongside him an air of vivacity and wit to the show. To be able to stand apart and compete with the former host’s popularity, he induced his touch into the host’s script and his way of speaking.
This was disliked by some, on the other hand it was a daily treat for SRK fans to acquire a daily dose of the King Khan, and also experience him as himself with the awesome love of life and spontaneity.
KBC shortlists 10 people for every episode, they are referred to as Fastest Finger First or FFF contestants. They are given a question where they have to arrange the options in the right order. The one doing that most promptly is given the opportunity to be on the Hot Seat and play for 2 2 Crore Rupees through a ladder of ten questions. He could be also given three lifelines in the beginning, “Fifty-Fifty” that leaves one correct option and one randomly selected one on the contestant’s screen. The second lifeline is “Audience Poll” and the third is “Phone-a-Friend”.
There are two landmarks in the process, also known as “padaav” first at Rs.20,000 and second at Rs.6,40,000.
