In the recently released 30-second promo of the game show, Bachchan says that at 9 pm on 17 June, people can begin answering the registration questions. The promo also features a group of people dancing in a baaraat, celebrating the return of Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Interested individuals can register via SMS, IVRS or online. Those who are selected will be intimated through e-mail and SMS, or people can also check the TV, newspapers or the official website of the game show. The website also has practice quizzes which can help prepare for 17 June.

Amitabh Bachchan also shared the first look of this season.

"KBC has gracefully agreed to reappear and in doing so has coerced me into recording the registration questions for the contest to be on air by August-September! This year!" wrote the actor on his personal blog.

Bachchan has hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati seven times since it first aired in 2000. Season three of the show was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan, who was also the host of another game show, Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?
