Interestingly, even after 18-years since it first went on air, KBC has not lost its sheen and continues to attract a massive fan following. Though the format of Kaun Banega Crorepati 10 remains the same, there are a few changes this time around. For example, the questions are evidently little difficult. For the first time on any Indian reality show, the latest technology is being used. In lifelines, the audio call has been replaced with video conferencing.
This year, KBC has introduced the feature on the Sony Liv app where audiences can play along with the contestants. On the other hand, Jio customers have a double benefit as they can get a chance to sit on the hot seat facing Bollywood’s megastar, Amitabh Bachchan.
