A very warm welcome to you friends so you all know that Kaun Banega Crorepati 6 season has started and hence our forum.
i am her to welcome you
and give you a brief introduction...
kaun banega crorepati is a game show cum reality show which was created by Siddhartha Basu.It was presented by Amitabh Bachchan(1,2,4,5,6)and Sharukh Khan(3)
it is based on the U.K. show Who wants to be a millionaire?it was first aired in 2000 with Amitabh Bachchan as the host which was interestingly his first appearance on Indian television.The show met with huge popularity in the very first season.It was hosted by Amitabh for five seasons and Sharukh hosted one season.kaun banega crorepati 6 as the name itself says is the sixth season of kbc.
coming to some rules of kbc...
The standard Millionaire format is used, with the Fastest Finger contest before the main game.
All contestants must be over the age of 18 and citizens of India in order to be eligible. The person must not be a former "Kaun Banega Crorepati" contestant and, as defined in the Income Tax Act, 1961, must also be a resident of India. Furthermore, they may not be employees of the production company, broadcaster, or prize providers.
The contestant is asked to pick a "Padao", which means that after a certain question, for example after Question 6, he will at least get that amount of money after answering that question rightly. The pre-2010 United States format of a "shot clock" will be used in the first few questions -- 45 seconds. After the Padao, there is no time limit.
The money won after each question is roughly doubled from the previous amount won, exponentially increasing the amount won after each correct answer until the contestant reaches the final question, after which they win the maximum prize which is 5 crore in KBC6.
. Some lifelines used in kbc
- 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.
