KBC 12: Registrations for this Amitabh Bachchan show begins. Here’s the entire virtual selection process explained step-by-step.
The registrations for Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 12 have begun and will be wrapped by the end of July. The pandemic might have put a rest to the activities all across the world, but not on the dreams. At least that’s the theme of the popular game show this season. Hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, KBC 12 has already released its first promo that was shot at Jalsa. The entire show, for the first time in history, has gone fully digital. Starting from the registration to submission, audition, and selection, all the KBC 12 processes have gone virtual this year. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how the things are going to work for the audience
Registration for KBC 12
The first question that has been asked by Bachchan in the latest episode is: ‘Where in China was the Coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19, first identified?’ The actor will appear on Sony TV at 9 pm every day till May 22 to ask the registration questions. The viewers can answer these questions either via SMS or the SonyLIV app. A randomiser will shortlist a few contestants among those who have given the right answers. These shortlisted participants will be called and informed about the next stage of selection.
Audition for KBC 12
The short-listed contestants will be asked to audition digitally and clear a general knowledge test online via the SonyLIV app. They will also have to submit a video along with the test.
Personal Interview for KBC 12
After the registration, audition, and video submission, the last stage is the personal interview. These interviews will be conducted through video conferences after which a list of final contestants will be released and those who have a chance to play ‘Fastest Fingers First’ will be called and informed.
Mid-Day quoted Amit Raisinghani, head of business planning and communication, Sony, commenting on the entire virtual process. He said, “This is the season of first as the entire screening and selection will be managed digitally. We are confident that this season will redefine the power of knowledge.”
