In the promotional video, Bachchan warmly invites contestants and viewers to the new season, hinting at exciting content to come. He refers to the upcoming season as a “new beginning,” sparking curiosity about what changes the new season might bring. In a previous teaser, it was suggested that this season would introduce a new concept, hinting at a more technologically advanced version of the show.
The show will air from Monday to Friday at 9:00 PM Indian Standard Time. It will be broadcasted on Sony TV and will also be available for streaming on Sony LIV.
Bachchan, who recently celebrated the 1000th episode of the show, has been open about the challenges he faced when deciding to take on the project due to financial constraints. Despite these difficulties, he has remained committed to the show and even initiated the tradition of sprinting towards the stage for the show’s introduction, a tradition he has maintained despite advice to the contrary.
KBC has been empowering people to fulfill their dreams based on their talent, and the upcoming season promises to continue this legacy. As the official account of Sony captioned the video, “Aapke sapnon ko uunchhi udaan dilaayega yeh manch!” which translates to “This platform will give your dreams a high flight!”
