The wait is now over for the grand opening of yet another season of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) tonight at 9 P.M IST and it will have none other than megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
He will be raising the curtain by reciting a power-packed and hope-filled poem emphasising the show’s theme to “make comeback after the setback”.
On 11 July, Bachchan was tested positive for COVID-19. After recovering from it, he made a big comeback on the set of KBC on 23 August.
T 3590 -I have tested CoviD positive .. shifted to Hospital .. hospital informing authorities .. family and staff undergone tests , results awaited ..— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) July 11, 2020
All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested !
Another big highlight this time is the first contestant of the show - Aarti Jagtap from Madhya Pradesh state, whose father is a plumber and mother works as a cook.
Battling all the challenges of life, her parents did everything to educate her and her siblings, and with her strong determination and self-belief, she made it to the hot seat of KBC.
There are many more inspiring stories of people who have been shortlisted after multiple selection rounds.
This is for the first time in 20 years that the show is not hosting a live audience and hence, the lifeline “audience poll' has been replaced by video-a-friend. Apart from this, a contestant can seek the help of an ‘intelligent expert”, take a “50-50” option, or even “flip the question”.
