Along with much-loved features of the classic format, viewers can look forward to expect the unexpected this season, a turbo-charged version, with novel features, engaging contestants, and vibrant conduct by the host who’s the most – Amitabh Bachchan.”
This edition of KBC 9 will see the introduction of new lifelines. 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 Rs. 7 crores. This will be an ‘All Or Nothing’ deal, where all the remaining lifelines of the contestants will terminate. The iconic live-sized cheques will be replaced with digital currency transferred directly into winner’s account via ‘Axis Bank’.
