Television show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' is back and how! Firstly, Amitabh Bachchan, who hosted the first two seasons of the show, is back as the host. Secondly, the prize money is whopping Rs 5 crore! Also, the number of questions has been reduced from 15 to 13.

The show will be launched on October 11, which also happens to be Amitabh Bachchan's birthday. 'Birthdays come and go. But to get an opportunity to release 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' on my birthday makes me feel really proud. I thank the channel for this and hope the audience find it exciting too,' said Big B.

A few episodes of the show have already been recorded. It can be recalled that the third season of the show was hosted by Shahrukh Khan.

So, will we see something new this time in KBC? Amitabh said, 'Even though the basic format remains unchanged, the show will be faster and crispier this time. There will be 12 questions for Rs one crore and the last one would be the jackpot of Rs 5 crore.'

The actor further added, 'Apart from 'Phone a friend' and 'Audience poll' lifelines, two new lifelines- 'Expert help' and 'Double Dip' have bee added. The '50-50' lifeline has been removed.'

Sidhharth Basu of Big Synergy said, 'Under a new concept of 'Ghadiyal babu', the participants would have to answer the first two questions in 30 seconds and the next five in 45 seconds. After the seventh question, there will be no time limit.'

You can also expect a lot of celebrities on KBC. 'Several celebrities would appear on the show. Instead of a single participant, a team would play this time around,' said Basu.

Let's wait and watch how the audiences respond to this new KBC.
