Super star Amitabh Bachchan is once again all set to host game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), with its Season 9 premiering on August 28 on Sony Entertainment Television (SET).

KBC 9 will be bursting with new lifelines, thrilling gamification and an array of technological advancements in a concisely packaged limited episode season. The hitherto ‘Phone-a-Friend’ lifeline will be revamped this season to Video-A-Friend. Additionally, an aptly titled new life-line ‘Jodidaar’ has been introduced - wherein the participant can bring along a partner to join him/her on the coveted hot seat. The game will be made more exciting with the introduction of a jackpot question for rupees 7 crores. This will be an all or nothing deal, where all the remaining lifelines of the contestants will terminate. 

Taking the promise of celebrating the commoner and his/her exemplary contribution to the society, Mr. Bachchan will invite real-life-heroes in special episodes. These individuals will not only be given an opportunity to play the game, but also be provided a platform to reach out to the country in support of their cause.

The viewers will get to reminisce the journey of Kaun Banega Crorepati on Indian television in a special ‘Curtain Raiser’ episode which will be telecast on Sony Entertainment Television on 25th August at 9:00 p.m. Kaun Banega Crorepati will bring the game closer to the viewers by taking the engagement a notch higher. This year, the show received a record breaking registration of 19.8 million over 7 days.

Amitabh Bachchan, the celebrated host shared, “Kaun Banega Crorepati celebrates the dreams and aspirations of the common man and their tryst with knowledge. The show is close to my heart and I am glad to host its 9th ninth edition on Sony Entertainment Television”

NP Singh, CEO, Sony Pictures Networks India said “Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is a show that truly does Go-Beyond the ordinary to touch the lives of people from all walks of life.
