After all the wait, Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati is back with its 12th season. And before the Amitabh Bachchan-hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati airs on Monday i.e. September 28, 2020, we bring you the lowdown on the show, where to watch, how to watch and date and time. Talking about the show, Amitabh Bachchan recently wrapped up the shooting for Kaun Banega Crorepati and while he shot for the promo of Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 from home, later, he shot the episodes from the sets.

Since the shooting of the show started amid the pandemic, the makers of the show took all precautionary measures to ensure the safety of Big B, contestants, and the crew members. Also, the contestants who have been chosen for the fastest-finger first round, have been put under quarantine in a hotel before they enter the KBC 12 sets.  

When to watch

The first episode of KBC 12 premieres today i.e. September 28 at 9PM

Check out the post here:

Where to watch

The show will premiere on Sony TV and fans of the Amitabh Bachchan show have the option to watch Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 on its live-streaming platform Sonyliv app.


Unlike previous seasons, the number of contestants for the fastest finger first has been reduced to 8 as the seats need to be at a distance to maintain social distancing.

No audience

Due to COVID 19, there will be no live audience on the show. However, the contestants are allowed to bring along just one family member. Also, the lifeline ‘audience poll’ has been replaced with ‘video-a-friend’.


Due to the pandemic, this season of KBC will have contestants who have been hit hard with the lockdown and the new season will emphasize on turning ‘setbacks’ into ‘comebacks’.

Thank you very much for publishing my following message about KBC Advertisement before the episode telecast. I do not fancy watching KBC any more because there is no excitement and suspense. As the matter of fact, excitement and suspense is already been declared on the advertisement so PLEASE do not advertise the upcoming episode so that the viewers can enjoy fully with excitement and suspense. I am RKM from London UK

This is to inform to ALL KAUN BANEGA KAROPATI Organizers including Amitabh Bachchan that PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE kindly do not Advertise any part of the upcoming Episode before the Episode is telecast Because the suspense and excitement of that particular episode will be devastated for the viewers by the advertisement because the viewers will know up to how much the contestant will win the prize. For example = Mr Jay episode. Before the episode is telecast, in the advert Mr Amitabh Bachchan is asking the question for Rs 25 Lakhs question so as the matter of fact Mr Jay has already won up to Rs 12.5 Lakhs so WHERE IS THE EXCITEMENT FOR THAT EPISODE?????????? Can you please explain............................................

KBC is a show for enhancing the knowledge of the TV audience and in India the show is definitely one of its kind with both contents and trademark presence of the one and only Amitabh Bachhan Sir. I hope that this season of KBC will be as popular as all the previous seasons.
