KBC sixth season 2012 is BacK
show will telecast on tv friday to sunday.
Mumbai: Game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati", to be hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan yet again, will be back in its prime time slot, channel officials said on Tuesday.
"It will be a prime time show. I can't tell you the exact slot because we are in discussion we are brain storming the right time. But certainly it will be a prime time slot," Sony Entertainment Television (SET) senior vice president and marketing head Danish Khan said.
"We have not decided the days but the talks are on. We will soon make an official announcement," he added.KBC had been slotted for either 8.30 or 9 p.m. time band so far.
The channel on Thursday announced yet another marketing and communication campaign "Sirf Gyaan Hi Aapko Aapka Haq Dila Sakta Hai" as the communication theme for the upcoming season of the game show."The challenge was how do we take the philosophy to the next level. We came up with 'Gyaan hi aapko aapka haq dilata Hai' because it's a great factor to empower people.
When you see the show you will see shades of that,"said Khan."One of the most important part of the show is how we democratise the entire KBC. We have taken immense pain with lot of pleasure to ensure that we expand the base of KBC. Every time you are going to see KBC episode, you will see a small India."Big B, who has been hosting various seasons of KBC for quite some time, will be seen again for the KBC 2012 as well.
Khan says they can't think of anyone else in his place."There is absolutely nobody like Mr Bachchan. His appeal transcends across all the age groups. He can relate and connect with people of all backgrounds. His command over the language - Hindi, English and many other local language, his humility and sincerity these are the factors that drives his popularity."
LifelinesA contestant can use a lifeline when he/she is undecided about which answer is correct. A lifeline can only be used once. The current lifelines in KBC5 are the same as KBC4
- Audience Poll: If the contestant uses this lifeline, it will result in the host repeating the question to the audience. The studio audience get 10 seconds to answer the question. Audience members use touch pads to designate what they believe the correct answer to be. After the audience have chosen their choices, the results are displayed to the contestant in percentages in bar-graph format and also shown on the monitors screens of the host and contestant, as well as the TV viewers.
- Phone a Friend: If the contestant uses this lifeline, the contestant is allowed to call one of the three pre-arranged friends, who all have to provide their phone numbers in advance. The host usually starts off by talking to the contestant's friend and introduces him/her to the viewers. After the introduction, the host hands the phone call over to the contestant who then immediately has 30 seconds to ask and hope for a reply from their friend.
- Ask an Expert: This lifeline allows the contestant to ask an expert via live face-to-face audio and video connection. The expert could be anyone from a celebrity to a previous Millionaire contestant. Ask the Expert is available throughout the game. There is no set time limit, and the contestant and expert are allowed to discuss the question.
- Double Dip: This lifeline allows the contestant to make two guesses at a question. In the 4th season this lifeline was made available after the contestant correctly answers the seventh question.In the 5th season,however,all 4 lifelines were made available from the start of the game. A second incorrect answer results in a loss and the contestant's winnings dropping back down to the last milestone achieved. This lifeline differs from others in that once the player has chosen to use this lifeline, he/she must answer the question, and cannot walk away or use any further lifelines on that question.
- Fifty-Fifty (50/50): If the contestant uses this lifeline, the host will ask the computer to randomly remove and eliminate two of the "wrong" answers. This will leave one right answer and one wrong answer, resulting in a situation of eliminating 50% of the choices as well as having a 50% chance of getting the answer right if the contestant is in a situation of making a guess. In 2010, 50/50 was replaced by Double Dip.
- Flip the Question: The contestant earned this lifeline upon answering the fifth question. The computer replaced, at the contestant's request, one question with another of the same monetary value. Any lifelines used on the original question prior to the switching were not reinstated.
