KBC Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 premiere highlights: Amitabh Bachchan’s quiz show returns with a bang; play along here

Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) Season 11 First Episode live updates: Host Amitabh Bachchan returns on Sony TV for the latest season of the popular quiz show.

Kaun Banega Crorepati season 11 premiered on Monday, August 19. Hosted once again by actor Amitabh Bachchan, the popular game show tests contestants’ general knowledge with a series of increasingly difficult questions.

Based on the British show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? KBC, as it is popularly known, has been hosted by Bachchan for all but one of its 11 seasons - the sole exception was season three, which was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan.

Bachchan at a recent press event said that his decision to host the show was quite unplanned. “It was just a coincidence. The channel came about with this idea. Circumstances were such that everyone felt I should not go there (on TV) especially people from my home but I just felt that this was something new,” he said.

This season, viewers at home will be able to participate in the show as it unfolds. To do so, they’d have to download the SonyLIV app and follow instructions. Or, you could just stay tuned with our live updates of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 11 right here.
