Its back with a bang. Amongst us who have the habit of watching those Star Plus kind of saas bahu shows must have observed the promotional campaign of KBC 2. Yes guys its back. Kaun Banega Crorepati 2 will be its new name and it will be hostel by the one and only Amitabh Bachchan. One can visit the site http://kbc2.indya.com for more details on it. I was one of those fortunate ones to win some money in the KBC 1. It was the time when we had to send the answers to the questions by SMS. I won a lakh of rupees in that and I was delighted to see my name in the winners list which was flashed on the screen.
This show has numerous changes attached to it. One of the most important change they have made is quite possible the campaign which they are using to propagate the show. The campaign stars Amitabh Bachchan talking all about people's aspirations and beliefs and their hopes and wishes. I must say the ad campaign is really great and the dialogues are also superb. The dialogue writer is Mr. Renu Dev Tailang who I know quite well. I also met him once in Mumbai. Let's see what is the new thing he brings in the show.
The other change is the prize money in the game which has been increased from 1 crore to 2 crore.
Let's see whether Star Plus can pull off another victory and give people a relief after a very boring schedule of saas bahu serials.
