The 12th season of the most popular quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Amitabh Bachchan has kick-started on 28th September. Due to the pandemic, a lot has been changed in the show in terms of its format. No live audience is sitting on the sets, just as other shows, due to safety norms. So, the show is going on without one of its most interesting part called the audience poll lifeline. In its place, there is a new option called ‘video a friend.’
Aarti Jagtap became the first participant in the show this season. She was asked to answer a question related to Dil Bechara, the last film of the well-known actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The question was, who is the actress to debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in the movie, Dil Bechara.
Aarti knew the name and without taking any help she answered that it was Sanjana Sanghi. The first contestant of KBC 12 won Rs. 6.40 lakh.
Big B has himself recovered from the pandemic a few days ago. Keeping his and others’ safety in mind, the show makers have taken no risk regarding maintaining social distance and all other guidelines. The actor posted a photo of himself on social media before the show went on air and he was working with the team.
The picture showed Amitabh wearing a face shield. The makers also released a video to inform about the changes being made to the show in order to maintain the new normal rules. The introductory videos were filmed by contestants themselves from their homes. The hot seat is also kept at a distance from the seat of the host.
