Registrations for Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 to begin from May 9
New Delhi : After reports that the makers of Kaun Banega Crorepati are planning on a new edition of the show after lockdown ends in India, the host Amitabh Bachchan has revealed that people will be allowed to register for the upcoming season from May 9.
Retweeting a short video tweeted by Sony TV, Amitabh Bachchan announced the commencement of the registration process. He wrote, "Ji.. its coming back to you again soon."
In the video, the Megastar can be heard saying, "Har cheez ko break lag sakta. Nukkad ki chai ko, chai pe hone wali hello hi ko. Sadko ke sath yaari ko, triple seat sawari ko, har cheez ko break lag sakta hai. Office wali chakri ko, aadhi raat ki tafri ko, shopping mall ke pyaar ko, chaurahe ke yaar ko, har cheez ko break lag sakta hai. Subah ke school ko, raste ki dhool ko, jeewan ki race ko, conference room ki maze ko, ghadi ki tiktik ko, shantabai ki jhik-jhik ko, train ki hahakar ko, dhadkan ki raftaar ko. Har cheez ko break lag sakta hai."
He adds, "Lekin ek cheez hai jise break nahi lag sakta- sapnon ko. Sapnon ko udaan dene phir aa rahe hain mere sawaal aur aapke KBC registrations 9 May raat 9 baje se sirf Sony TV par."
Due to ongoing lockdown in India, the promo for the show has been shot inside Amitabh Bachchan's house. Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari remotely directed the promo. Nitesh said, "Each year, when we start deliberating about KBC, we go through various insights which may trigger an impactful narrative. This time however, the very environment that we are in, sets the context of the film."
Talking about how challenging was it to shoot the promo during lockdown, he added, "First, I shot a scratch film with myself and shared it with Mr Bachchan, for him to get an idea about my vision. After which, Mr Bachchan shot the entire film at his own home, all by himself."
The makers will announce the commencement date of the show at a later stage when the situation will ease a little.
