Mumbai: The most anticipated television reality quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati season 9 will be aired from today, i.e. August 28, at 2100 hours on the Sony Entertainment Channel. Once again the host of the show will be none other than Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

The ninth season of the reality show will have new features like Video-A-friend instead of the old Phone-A-Friend, and the winners will get the prize money directly in their account instead of getting a huge cheque. A life-line Jodidaar has been introduced, wherein the participant can bring along a partner to join him/her on the hot seat.

The game will be made more exciting with the introduction of a jackpot question for Rs 7 crore -- an all or nothing deal, where all the remaining lifelines of the contestants will terminate. The iconic huge cheques will be replaced with digital currency transferred directly into the winner's account, read a statement from the channel.

Some special episodes will see Big B inviting real-life heroes, who will not only be given an opportunity to play the game, but also be provided a platform to reach out to the country in support of their cause.

It may be mentioned that this year, the show received a record breaking registration of 19.8 million over seven days.
