So the registrations will begin from May 9 onwards and the legendary actor will ask questions on Sony TV. So all you interested viewers, start honing your general knowledge as that will come handy to answer Big B’s questions. And one right answer can help you land directly on the hot seat.
Owing to the Covid-19 situation in the country, this time(as per IANS report), the auditions will take place digitally and it will be divided into four parts- registration, screening, online audition and personal interview. Also, Big B’s announcement video was also shot entirely at his home.
Speaking about the show, Nitesh Tiwari, who remotely shot the promo, told IANS, “Each year, when we start deliberating about KBC, we go through various insights that may trigger an impactful narrative. This time, however, the very environment that we are in, sets the context of the film,”
He further added, “KBC is not just a game/quiz show for people. It’s more than that. It’s an opportunity to realise one’s dreams. One doesn’t stop dreaming given the adversity. In fact, the dreams only become more significant, and that was the trigger for this film. Shooting this film was a challenge, though. 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. I hope this campaign strikes a chord with the audience and they participate wholeheartedly.”
