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

Latest Update:
  • Today Episode:
  • 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.
