Since 2000, Kaun Banega Crorepati has been ruling the hearts of the audience. After a successful twelfth season, the makers are all set to release the thirteenth season of the quiz show. Now, the latest report suggests that Amitabh Bachchan’s quiz show will be premiering on August 23. It is said that the grand finale episode of the dance reality show, Super Dancer Chapter 4 will be held on August 29. However, an official confirmation is still awaited. Furthermore, the reports also say that there will be a change in the quiz show. This year, the selection and screening process will be held digitally.
Well, in the previous season as well, the makers had to incorporate some changes owing to the COVID-19 situation. For KBC12, the maker had to scrap the audience poll lifeline, removed the live audience and they had fewer contestants in the Fastest Finger First round. Well, as the horror has not ended, we wonder if the makers will continue the same for KBC13 as well. Meanwhile, some days back, in an interview with Indian Express, KBC producer Siddharth Basu addressed the online criticism for ‘selling sob stories’ in the show.
“KBC has never been just another quiz show. The human story has always mattered, and that’s what created the sensation of the first season in India, based on which Vikas wrote his book Q&A. It’s never been only sob stories though on KBC. If people get emotional, that’s not engineered. That’s natural on a life-changing show before a massive audience and a larger-than-life host,” he was quoted saying.
“There is a huge range of people from across the length of India on KBC telling engaging and relatable stories about ordinary Indians. It’s a show that touches lives with the heart as well as the mind,” he added.
