Kaun Banega Crorepati, with a charismatic host in the form of Amitabh Bachchan helped many in achieving their dreams. It comes with a philosophy which appeals to the common man of the country and that’s ‘Koi Bhi Insan Chota Nahi Hota’. The tagline was proved right by Sushil Kumar, a computer teacher from a small village of Bihar, who won 5 crores. The show started with decent TRPs, but went on to become the highest TRP gainer, by taking Sony TV to greater heights and becoming the No.2 GEC.
The top prize winners of the show have been from middle and lower middle class backgrounds. When they won this high amount, their happiness had no bounds and the cherry on the cake was when Amitabh celebrated their victory. These contestants not only attracted viewers to the show, but also added TRPs in the show. When Sushil Kumar’s episode was aired, the show gained 7.2 TVR (Television Rating) on the first day and 8 TVR on the other day as he was a roll over contestant. Amitabh Bachchan was overwhelmed after looking at the confidence of each contestant.
A recent tweet by Sneha Rajani head of Sony channel, read “KBC this season – 120 million viewers All India! Astounding….(sic)”
Amitabh Bachchan had also tweeted recently that he will be back soon with the sixth season of KBC.
