To kick off the season, Amitabh Bachchan read out an inspiring poem about the labour of the common man and his never-say-die spirit. Titled ‘Kab Tak Rokoge,’ the poem, read out in his impressive baritone, was about every man’s struggle and his persistence to overcome any hurdle to realise a goal.

Amitabh looked handsome in a black chequered jacket on black pants and white shirt. He also wore a black tie with a sparkly tie pin.

Fastest Fingers First

Sonia Yadav was the first contestant of KBC 10.

Ex Indian Air Force squadron leader Sonia Yadav won the Fastest Fingers First round. Contestants were asked to arrange India’s monumental space research events in chronological order. Sonia was the only person to give the correct answer.

Sonia is a retired officer who hopes to join politics and work for the betterment of the girl child and animals. She is the eldest of her four sisters and hails from Rewari, Haryana. She is from a family of army men and is proud of the way her parents have raised her.

More CGI graphics

Amitabh Bachchan introduced the new graphics.

Keeping up with the technology, the show has introduced a new way of showing the prize money ladder and the lifelines. The 3D graphics now float around on your screen and the host also interacts with them as such.

The first lifelines are used

While Sonia did exceedingly well in the initial few questions, she faced trouble on a question about the Air Force. She was asked the origin of the Indian Air Force motto, Nabah Sparsham Deeptam. She had to use the 50-50 lifeline and the audience poll. The audience gave the right answer and helped her win.

Amitabh chats with Sonia’s parents

Sonia’s parents seemed proud at their daughter’s achievements. Amitabh told the audience about an episode from Sonia’s childhood in which she asked her mother who should she tie a rakhi to as she doesn’t have a brother. Her mother told her to tie it to her father. Sonia’s father grew emotional and said all his daughters still tie him rakhis.

Amitabh spoke a few words on the precious relationship fathers have with their daughters.

Sonia talks about her husband and daughters

Sonia said that she married a Bengali man and their wedding. She talked about sweet moments from her wedding and how the different food habits of her and her husband made for an interesting wedding.

She also talked about her two daughters -- her two-year-old German Shephard and her eight-month-old baby daughter. She talked with great affection for her dog, who she says taught her about the simplicity of feelings.

Sonia used her last two lifelines

Anjana Om Prakash helps Sonia win Rs 12.5 lakhs.

At the question for Rs 12.5 lakhs, Sonia faced trouble. She was asked to identify the eastern-most state capital of the mentioned states: Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Nagaland and Manipur. She uses her ‘jodidaar’ lifeline but could not find the right answer. However, and expert on call, senior journalist Anjana Om Prakash came to her rescue with the final lifeline and helps her win the prize money. The night answer was Nagaland.

Sonia quits the show

Sonia Yadav could not answer the questions for Rs 25 lakh.

Sonia decided to quit the show as she didn’t know the answer for Rs 25 lakh question. Amitabh suggested she should play only if she knows the right answer as she no longer had any lifeline on her.Thankfully, she decided to quit as she was no where close to the right answer.

Sonia walked away with Rs 12.5 lakh.

Second Fastest Fingers First

Somesh Kumar Choudhary wins the second Fastest Fingers First which asked the contestants to arrange the lyrics of Sanju song Kar Har Maidan Fateh in order. Somesh takes the seat but the hooter sounds, indicating the end of the episode. Amitabh will play the game with Somesh on Tuesday.
