Default 2022-2023 KBC Kaun Banega Crorepati 14 Contestants, Winners, Prize won, Questions, Answers, Episodes, Guests

Latest Update:
  • Today Episode:
  • Contestant Karan correctly answers Rs 75 lakh question after quitting the game
  • The quiz-based show Kaun Banega Crorepati got its first Crorepati in Kavita Kaushik. However, she failed to answer the Rs 7.5 crore question and took home Rs 1crore. She wisely used the audience poll for the 1 crore question and managed to get the right answer. Host and megastar Big B appreciated her for the same.
  • Amitabh Bachchan discovers 'gyan ki shakti' in the first crorepati of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 14' Megastar Amitabh Bachchan asked 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 14' contestant Kavita Chawla why a cheque for Rs 3,20,000 meant so much to her after she expressed her joy over getting it. Chawla, who went on to become the reality quiz show's first 'crorepati' this season, said in her answer to him that she was once earning Rs 20 a day once and now, using her intelligence, she was getting that substantial amount in a matter of just a few hours. Bachchan then said that she was endowed with 'gyaan ki hakti' -- her "superpower" was her knowledge.
  • Amitabh Bachchan reveals how much he weighs and his fear of trigonometry, Contestant Komal Gupta makes host Amitabh Bachchan announce her name for the hot seat once again in the beginning of the episode. Komal is a weight lifter and she credits her father as an inspiration. Komal reveals she was 11 when she visited an akhada for the first time with her father and started training. She has won medals in state and national level championships.
  • Mary Kom, Sunil Chhetri donate Rs 12.5 lakh they won on 'KBC14'
  • Kaun Banega Crorepati 14 premiered last night (August 7) and Dhulichand becomes the first contestant to reach the newly introduced step in the show. The makers have added an extra question after Rs 50 lakh – Rs 75 lakh and contestant Dhulichand is the first one to reach the level. The promo from the upcoming episode released by the makers gives a glimpse of it.
  • KBC 14 Premiere: Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan salute Major DP Singh and Colonel Mitali Madhumita for their bravery, Sunday with a special episode of 'Aazadi Ke Garv Ka Mahaparv' celebrating 75 years of India's Independence. Started with a patriotic poem. Big B said he has returned to the show after 232 days. Big B welcomed Aamir Khan, Major DP Singh, a Kargil war veteran and Colonel Mitali Madhumita. Aamir shared the story behind Big B getting him onboard on Twitter. The Bollywood actor said he only used the platform to promote his films or the ones made by his friends. Big B said he should do KBC's 'prachar' as well. Aamir tells him KBC doesn't need any 'prachar'. Colonel Mitali Madhumita narrated how a facility at the Indian Embassy in Kabul was attacked. She didn't know the attack was on their people. She shared how she took the help of Afghanis and rescued many. For this she was awarded the Sena Medal. Amitabh Bachchan stood up and saluted her for her courage. After winning Rs 40,000, Major DP Singh took the place of Col Mitali on the hot seat. For a question related to Dev Anand, Aamir Khan and Major DP Singh used their first lifeline. After they won Rs 50 lakh, they had exhausted all their lifelines and chose to exit the game.
  • Next, MC Mary Kom and Sunil Chhetri were welcomed by Amitabh Bachchan. The two mention the charities they'd be donating their prize money to. The two of them didn't know the first question and decided to use a lifeline - audience vote. Thereafter, they moved swiftly up the ladder. Sunil Chhetri showed everyone football tricks and even made Big B complete his dialogue from the movie, Mr Natwarlal. The guests and the host continued the game. Mary Kom and Sunil Chhetri used two lifelines to answer the question that made them win Rs 12.5 lakh. However, time was soon up after they won Rs 25 lakh.
  • 'KBC' director reveals format changes, talks about joys of working with Big B
  • The 14th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati is all set to premiere on August 7 and many special guests are going to grace the hot-seat. Alongside Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, Kargil War veteran Major D.P Singh, Col. Mitali Madhumita (first woman officer in the Indian Army) to win Sena Medal Gallantry, Padma Vibhushan sportsperson MC Mary Kom, and Padma Shri Sunil Chhetri (Footballer) will be present.
  • The show will premiere on August 7 (Sunday) at 9pm. “Ravivaar, 7th August se Raat 9 baje, shuru hoga Kaun Banega Crorepati ka naya adhyay. Hoga azadi ke garv ka mahaparv.” Aamir Khan says, “Mere liye bahut khaas din hai aaj.”
  • The show will now have a new slot of Rs. 75 lakh. The changes have been made to pay respect to the 75th Independence Day.
About the Season 14: New Rules
  • Fastest finger first with 10 contestants to make it to the hot-seat.
  • The rules and the new changes in the format of the game. Of the known format, Big B added the contestants, who will win Rs. 1 crore will get a car alongside the prize money.
  • Rs. 7.5 crore winner will also take home a car, but of another variety.
  • The game this season will once again have 3 lifelines instead of 4. Originally, when the show premiered, it had 3 lifelines and ‘Ask the expert’ lifeline was added from season 4. This season will be devoid of the ‘Ask the expert’ lifeline. And instead of ‘Phone a friend’ lifeline, the makers have tweaked it to ‘Video call a friend’. Of 3 pre-given contacts by the contestants, they can select one person to seek help from in case they get stuck in the game.
  • The lifeline for a question and while the call drops after 60 secs to lock the answer, the person on the video call gets to stay until the answer is revealed.
  • Apart from these additions and changes, it was previously known that if a contestant fails to answer Rs 7.5 crore, he/she will atleast take home Rs 75 lakh unlike in previous seasons, where the prize money would drop down to Rs. 3.20 lakh.
  • The show will now have a new slot of Rs. 75 lakh will bring alive the enthusiasm of 75 years of Independence in the show as well.
  • "Further bringing alive the zeal of Independence, this season, contestants will be gratified with higher wins. Introducing the 'New Padaav', this time, the contestants can enter the safe haven with a win of INR 75 lakhs and can further go on to win the highest prize money of 7.5 crores. For viewers sitting at home, this year, the gratification of 'Play Along' will be immediate as players will get to sit on the hotseat every Friday."
  • The other highlights of season include 3 lifelines - Audience Poll, Video-a-Friend and 50:50 adding excitement to the gameplay. "After a stupendous success of the children's special week in the last season, the current season will witness little geniuses taking the hotseat. These are the Paramount changes to the format.
  • The set has got a refreshing new look. It stays with its classiness yet it's modern and has got a lot of exciting content around. That's what viewers should look forward to," he elaborated about the format of the show.
Host:
  • Amitabh Bachchan-hosted show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 14' is about to start
  • Big B also wrote a lengthy post about returning as the host of the show this year.
  • He took to his blog and wrote, "Back to the boards and the apprehension and fears and doubts arise again .. and each season presents itself similarly .. others think otherwise .. they are not wise , or in due process of the understanding needed to face camera and audience .. a claim much debated , but in all earnestness it is factual for me .."
  • Big B had also shared that everytime he thinks 'never again', he is reminded of his commitment to the show. "There is an 'each time I say never again' and yet it all comes back when the commitment has been made...so comply and accept and go ahead with the best efforts...and so one tries," he added.
  • Big B praised the confidence of his team and hoped everything would fall into place.
Director's View:
  • Director Arun Sheshkumar said: "The beauty of 'KBC' is that this is one show where your talent is your knowledge. Your talent is your luck. You don't need to know dancing or singing or any kind of an extra co-curricular talent per se. What you have studied or what you are reading is what you are bringing onto the show as your experience and your personal life."
  • "So, 'KBC' attracts those kind of people to come and share their experiences in terms of current affairs, their general knowledge, and the aspiration to win big money and change their life." He further shared how he envisioned Amitabh Bachchan at the centre of his directorial perspective.
  • "Mr. Bachchan is the pivotal point of the show and he is a conductor, as we call it. He is the man who is running this whole orchestra called 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. The beauty with which he adapts and gels into the situation is a director's delight. Watch him mold to the situations and ease out the contestants or bring the tension onto the game. It's like the word is given and it's a go."
  • "As far as conducting the whole show and the way this entire set functions, it is primarily because Mr. Bachchan at the time of the first season had said, 'Only condition I'll enter television and do this show is if we run this professionally.' That has been paramount stress of keeping everything very organised and disciplined and the atmosphere very light. The focus is, of course, Mr. Bachchan and we try to keep him comfortable so that he can comfortably run the entire game, the way he likes," he added.

Kaun Banega Crorepati 14: Ajay Devgn's film Tanhaji helped Harsh Poddar from Delhi to answer this Rs 50,00,000 question
  • Brij Kishor Singh, from Surat, a diamond cutter. He had won Rs 1,60,000 in the previous episode and Big B presented the question for Rs 3,20,000 which he failed to answer and came directly down to Rs 10,000. Big B read out, Which of these cities is well-known as a hub of the International diamond industry? Brij Kishor used his second lifeline 50-50 but could not guess the right answer. The correct answer was: Option C, Antwerp, Belgium.
  • After Brij Kishor Singh made an exit from the show, Big B played yet another round of Fastest Finger First and Harsh Poddar from Delhi made it to the hot seat. While welcoming him to the show, Mr Bachchan revealed this is the first on the show that a contestant has got all the three questions right in less span of time. The 35 year old is in the business of medical supplies after belonging to a family of doctors and having a wife, who is a dentist. During his introduction, the contestant spoke about how he got into the business of medical supplies after coming from a family of doctors. He also talked about his father who guided his way to the business model and helped clear his doubts.
  • Mr Bachchan then resumed the game with Harsh Poddar. The first question for Rs 1000 which Harsh faced was an image question. According to a Hindi proverb, which animal's tail does not become straight? He chose A) Image option A and got it correct. After answering the next few questions, he reached the first Padhaav of Rs 10,000. Which of these deliveries is also called a 'bumper'? He chose C) Bouncer and cleared the first hurdle.
  • They chatted about their favourite cricketers, but Big B refused to share the name of his favourite Indian cricketers and joked that had he not been an actor, he would have worked in diplomatic services. He reasoned saying that all are his friends and if he misses out anyone's name, they would beat him up.
  • For the Rs 20,000 question, Harsh was shown a scene from a film and was asked: What was the name of the original film that this Hindi film is a remake of? Harsh confidently said Option A) Arjun Reddy.
  • The megastar then quizzed Harsh about who takes who to the movies and since Harsh is a huge film fanatic, he took his name. But when Big B confirmed with his wife, she stated that they both take each other out for movies. The KBC host enjoyed the cute nok jhok between the husband-wife duo and stated that he wanted to see this.
  • Continuing the game further, Big B read out the next question for Rs 40,000. Which of these names is that of a gate of the Red Fort in Delhi? Harsh swiftly answered B) Lahori Gate and it was the right answer. Answering the next few questions with his logical thinking and without any help, Harsh left Big B impressed and he praised the former for it. Harsh reached the second 'Padhaav' for Rs 3,20,000: Which of these animals is also known as '****er Whale'? Harsh was not sure of the answer and he used his first lifeline 'Audience Poll'. The correct answer was A) Orca.
  • Big B then chats with Harsh about his marital life and he shares whenever he's happy or returns from work happy, his wife, but before he could complete the statement, Big B takes over and says, “Today you are smiling too much who did you meet". Harsh quickly asks Big B “Arey sir does this happen with you too?” Big replies saying “Sir it's a universal truth." He further shares a few incidents and the host and the audience laugh their hearts out.
  • Big B then asks the 11th question for Rs 6,40,000. On 16th February 2022, Shri Amit Shah presided over a ceremony marking the 75th raising day of which of these organisations? Harsh is not very confident of the answer and decides to take 'Video Call A Friend' lifeline's help. However, his friend is not able to help. He then uses his other lifeline 50-50, the two options that his friend had mentioned were erased. He takes a wild guess but with a logical thinking. He selects option B) Delhi police.
  • Mr Bachchan read out the question for Rs 12,50,000. This is Rufus, a hawk used to keep pigeons away from which iconic sporting venue in London? He was shown an image. Harsh again applied logic while answering and selected Option D) Wimbledon, leaving Big B impressed.
  • While answering the next question for Rs 25,00,000, Harsh went with his gut feeling. Which businesswomen's first major venture started in a garage and involved extracting an enzyme from papayas? He was very confident about option A) Kiran Mazumdar - Shaw and the answer turned out to be correct. Big B congratulated Harsh saying, "Well done".
  • The game progressed ahead and Big B asked the 14th question for Rs 50,00,000 to Harsh. John Dryden, England's first poet laureate, wrote a play named after which Mughal emperor in 1675, while the meroro was still ruling? Harsh, who is a huge movie buff which he had confessed earlier, once again applied logic. Taking the reference from Ajay Devgn's film Tanhaji, he went with Option C) Aurangzeb. He kept giving the film Tanhaji's reference. He won Rs 50,00,000 and requested all the parents and future parents that they should never stop their kids from watching movies. This left Big B super happy and he stated, "Aap ko badhiyi aur aap ke muh mein ghee he nahi bahut saara shakar bhi".
  • Harsh revealed on the show that he plans to open a dentist clinic for his wife and that is the dream the couple share. During the break, few people from the audience requested Harsh to take them out for lunch and he promised them. Big B then pulled his leg saying that he would need Rs 1 crore to take the entire audience. Mr Bachchan asked the next question for Rs 75,00,000: Which of these flowering plants does not get it's name from a person? As Harsh was not aware of the answer, he decided to quit the game and didn't want to take a chance. The correct answer was: B) Gladiolus. He took home the prize money of Rs 50,00,000.

Kaun Banega Crorepati 14: Take a look at the Rs 50 lakhs question that contestant Prakyath was unable to answer

Contestant Prakyath has been playing quite well and has won Rs 5000. Big B further asks him more questions and he answers them correctly.

Big B further goes on to ask the sixth question which was a video question from the movie Om Shanti Om. The question was:

Big further goes on to ask the eighth question for Rs 80,000 and the question was:

Normally, how many bones are present in a human tigh?
  1. 1
  2. 5
  3. 3
  4. 4
Since contestant Prakyath is unsure about the question he asks for the second lifeline 50:50 and the two wrong options are removed and option A and B are on the screen. Prakyath selects option A and wins Rs 80,000

Big B recites the second padhav question for Rs 3,20,000 and the question was:

  4. India as a republic
Prakyath asks Big B to lock option A after giving a proper reasoning for the answer and He wins Rs 3,20,000 and also gets his first cheque. He further asks Big B to show the cheque to his mother after signing it.

Contestant Prakyath further gears up to answer the teeth question for Rs 12, 50, 000 and the question was:

Which god appeared before Sage Valmiki and asked him to write the Ramayana?
  1. Lord Rama
  2. Lor Shiva
  3. Lord Vishnu
  4. Lord Brahma
After being unsure of the answer Prakyath asks for his last lifeline that was video call a friend and Big B shows him the three names that he had shared and Prakyath chooses Meet Shah for help. Amitabh Bachchan greets him and gives the call to Prakyath for the question. Prakyath’s friend hears the question and says that it's option D Lord Brahma. Prakyath asks to lock option B and eventually he gets it correct and wins Rs 12,50,000.

Amitabh Bachchan further goes on to ask him the next question for Rs 25,00,000 and the question was:

Known as India’s ‘Missile Woman’ Tessy Thomas worked as the Project Director in developing which missile?
  1. BrahMos II
  2. Akash I
  3. Agni IV
  4. Nag III
Prakyath says that he is not sure but feels it is option C and keeps on thinking on the question. He says he doesn’t know exactly but would be taking a big risk and wants Big B to lock option C Agni IV. Prakyath awaits to hear that it's a right answer and Big B shouts out loudly and says that it is the correct answer and he wins Rs 25,00,000.

Everyone in the audience applauds his intelligence and Big B says it's a well played question.

Prakyath interrupts and says that he would like to says something. He further adds “This amount is quite big and until now I was doing internships and ther you are given a small amount for your work so the first stipend I got I brought a watch for my mom so this 50 lakhs I would like to dedicate this to my mom.”

Big B tells Prakyath’s mother that “There are very few children who think in such a way and that to at such young age. You should be proud of your son. It’s a very good wish that you have thought of thinking about your mom. Very well done Prakyath.”

Prakyath further asks Amitabh Bachchan “Sir when you had earned your first salary what did you do with it”, Big B replies “My first salary I also thought the same thing of giving it to my parents and therefore with the first salary I did this and bought something for my mother and father. My first job was in a Kolkata company where I was an executive and the moment I got my first holiday I packed my belonging and took my gifts and went to Delhi. With all my heart I gave the gift to my father, it was a watch which I had bought. But there is twist in the story when I opened the box the watch was missing and later I found out that when I had gone for shower my maid had stolen the watch and it was very sad for me. But I thought of gifting my family when I got the money.”

After a little talk Big B resumes with the game again and asks the next question for Rs 50,00,000 and the question was:

Which Royal Indian Navy warship was jointly responsible for the sinking of the Japanese submarine RQ-110 in 1994?

  1. HMIS Jumna
  2. HMIS Ratnagiri
  3. HMIs Parvati
  4. HMIS Lilavati
Prakyath says that he is not sure but feels it is option B and keeps on thinking on the question. He takes a few minutes to answer the question, but later thinks of quitting the question. Before leaving Big B asks him to guess one option and he selects option B and to which Amitabh Bachchan says it was a wrong question and the right answer was option A.
He takes home Rs. 25,00,000 and as soon as he left the hooter rings loudly and the episode ends
