Meanwhile, the show returned with its latest edition along with a host of new additions to the format, including the reinstatement of the studio audience.
Last year, the 12th season of 'KBC' underwent several changes to adapt to the social distancing norms of shooting amid the coronavirus pandemic. For the first time in 20 years, the show had hosted no live audience and hence, the lifeline 'audience poll' was replaced by video-a-friend.
The ongoing season returned of the lifeline. The other three lifelines are -- 50:50, Ask The Expert and Flip The Question.
For the latest season, changes have also been incorporated to 'Fastest Finger First' segment, which decides the contestant who will next take the Hot Seat opposite Bachchan.
The segment has been modified to 'Fastest Finger First - Triple Test'. Instead of one question, the answer to which had to be chronologically aligned, contestants will now have to answer three general knowledge questions.
