MUMBAI: The 10th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is all set to see more involvement from its host channel Sony Entertainment Television (SET). The broadcaster is co-producing the show via its newly launched production house Studio Nxt along with rights holder Big Synergy. The show will be aired from 3 September, weekdays at 9 pm.

SET business head and EVP Danish Khan said, “Sony Original is the sub brand of SET, Studio Nxt is another independent entity which is a production house to produce fiction, non-fiction, scripted, non-scripted and digital IPs.”

He added that it is an independent production house that will cater to Sony as well as platforms outside.

The show was kick-started with the campaign #KabTakRokoge, celebrating the spirit of resilience in people. Viewers can look forward to a special curtain raiser episode which will be telecast on Sony on 2 September at primetime.

The network claims to have received record-breaking registrations of over 31 million within a span of 15 days. The show promises to be a visual delight for viewers with the use of Augmented Reality (AR) for the first time on Indian TV.

Since Khan’s tenure at Sony as marketing head, KBC has always seen brainstorming for every aspect except the host. “Amitabh Bachchan was the best host in our mind from the day one. Since then, every year we have been trying to do something new, last year we had introduced the Fridays, Nayi Chah, this time we are coming up with AR to happen for any reality GEC in India. We have done huge investments and it is worth it,” he said.

When it comes to the promotion of the show, Khan said that there is a lot of media explosion. He added that as there’s a lot of penetration of social media and internet, there is little to plan and more to create.

The channel expects the ad inventories to be completely sold out within the next seven days. The show is co-powered by Vivo V11 Pro and Mahindra Marazzo while Aakash Institute, Axis Bank, Asian Paints, CEAT, Raymond and Syska Wires & Cables are the associate sponsors.
