Non-fiction show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is all set to be aired on SONY Entertainment Television. Adapted from the international format Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the first episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 2010 will premiere on television on October 11, Monday to Thursday at 9 pm. KBC 2010 is offering Rs 5 crore in prize money.

A number of changes have been introduced including a reduction in the total number of questions from 12 from 15. The Fastest Finger First contestants get to stay for a week, increasing their chances of getting on the Hot Seat. Another lifeline has been added, where an expert in the studio will help the contestant in his march towards a crore – all a contestant needs to do is to use the ‘Ask the Expert’ lifeline.
