Sony Entertainment Television announces the 12 th Season of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC).
In its 20 th year, KBC, is perhaps the most iconic show on Indian Television. It is widely
considered as a show that changes the lives of ordinary people, with the power of
knowledge. The show will be produced by StudioNEXT and the selection process will be
conducted digitally, through SonyLIV.
As a response to the present crisis, the entire selection process will be going digital. With
mass penetration of smartphones, and general awareness, KBC is expecting to see its reach
as well as participation increase multifold.
Step 1 – Registration
Sony Entertainment Television will commence registrations for the 12 th Season of KBC from
9 th May until 22 nd May. Mr. Bachchan will ask one new question every night at 9:00PM on Sony
TV. You can answer these questions either through SMS or through Sony LIV.
Step 2 – Screening
Participants who have answered the registration questions correctly and have been
shortlisted by the randomizer based on certain pre-defined reservation criteria, will be
reached out to, telephonically, for further assessment.
Step 3 – Online Audition
For the very first time, in the history of KBC, the auditions comprising a General Knowledge
test and video submission will be conducted exclusively via SonyLIV. While this may seem a
herculean task, every detail of the process will be explained through a simple tutorial, easily
accessible on SonyLIV.
Step 4 – Personal Interview
The last and final round is that of personal interview with the shortlisted auditionees, which
will be conducted remotely via video call.
The entire selection process will be verified by an independent audit firm.
For the very first time, Mr. Bachchan, too, has shot for KBC from the confines of his home. Ace
filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari remotely directed the registration promo, that touches all the right
chords, with Mr. Bachchan inviting the KBC aspirants, reiterating – Har cheez ko break lag
sakta hai… Sapno ko nahi…
Registrations start 9 th May onwards, at 9:00 PM, only on Sony Entertainment Television
