Mumbai, July 14 – The much awaited Kaun Banega Crorepati will come with snappy changes with lots of innovation set to be incorporated into the format. Even the show host Amitabh Bachchan will expect to come up with an entirely different style, unlikely previous KBC shows.
According to a reliable source from the crew of KBC it has been quoted that KBC is going to be more snappier and faster. The number of questions has been reduced from 15 to 12 and now the contestants have to give answer in a specified time of 30 seconds or the clock stops them to further reply. In addition, phoning a friend option undergoes an innovation. Earlier there was voice to answer but now it the three experts will appear on TV live.
Interestingly, superstar Amitabh Bachchan was about to host another popular show Bigg Boss but Colors missed out because of the date problems of contestants for another reality show Fear Factor.
“Fear Factor was to have members of the Indian cricket team as contestants. Everything was settled, but then the IPL controversy broke and BCCI cancelled the players’ participation. This was a big setback for Colors, so they had to delay their programming till they were able to find alternate participants .” Said the source.
Thought the problem is sorted out but the process took time and delayed for contacting Big B for Bigg Boss. When Mr. Bachchan didn’t hear from the channel for long he thought the channel would miss the program and as a result Sony got the Big B for KBC.
