Amitabh's tweet read, "T 2509 - KBC on !! 2 back to back rehearsals  .. and then to another studio for ????????? ?? ??????? ! just back ??  and now Ef ?? ??????? (sic)."

According to a report, the format will be the same as before but it will have new additions and will be high on technology.

In the opening episode, Big B will be seen donning a black suit and with tikka on forehead and his sweet smile completes his big and down-to-earth persona.

There will be no phone a friend, but instead the contestants will will be video calling their friends for the right answer. It will be exciting to see that the friends of the contestants will be now get the chance to see and talk to Big B.

 A source was quoted by the Indian Express as saying, "This season, the expert advice has been done away with and a new lifeline jodidaar (partner) will be included."

A trusted friend can accompany the participants to the show. "The contestants will get a chance to get any of their trusted friends to accompany them on the show. The partner will be seated in the audience and can help the contestant once during the course of the show."

The show will be fast now as more questions will be asked in an hour. The reports said, "It would be faster in terms of time given to the contestant to answer, and also cutting away the unwanted drama."

The new season will have more price money. "The season will also be for a shorter time period, airing only for six weeks (30 episodes)."

The report further said, "It would be a risky move, for if they give a wrong answer, their prize money would drop down to a certain level." As we revealed recently, KBC will replace Beyhadh. The game show might begin from mid-September and will be aired at 9 pm slot from Monday-Friday.

The show might start from mid-September and it is speculated that it will replace ‘Beyhadh’ and ‘Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi’ to cover the one hour time slot.
