Audience Poll Is Back
While last year Amitabh Bachchan hosted the show in the absence of a studio audience due to the coronavirus situation, this time there will be an audience in the studio. With this, the Audience Poll is making a comeback this season! The other three lifelines include 50:50 (wherein 2 incorrect answers will get deleted from the four options) and Ask The Expert (wherein the contestant can seek help from one distinguished professional) and Flip The Question (wherein the contestant will get an opportunity to change the question altogether and choose a topic for the replacement question).
