Detail about their origin and Seasons
Season 1: 2000–2001
KBC premiered on July 3, 2000 and was presented by Amitabh Bachchan, His first appearance on Indian television.  Initially, KBC offered participants the chance to win 1 Crore (ten million) Indian rupees. The decline in KBC viewers paved the way for the immediate transformation of the series into Junior KBC with children as participants, which aired since May 6, 2001.   The season ended on December 31, 2001.  The show was well received in its first season.
Season 2: 2005–2006
On August 5, 2005, after a four-year hiatus, the show was restarted and renamed Kaun Banega Crorepati Dwitiya or KBC 2. During this season, the grand prize amount was doubled to 2 crore (twenty million) rupees. It was abruptly discontinued by STAR Plus after Amitabh Bachchan fell ill in 2006 after filming his final episode on January 13, 2006. Bachchan had filmed 61 of the planned 85 episodes when he fell ill. He announced he would return after recovering, but when his health prevented him from filming the remaining 24 episodes, Star TV made the decision to halt production.
Season 3: 2007
Star Television recruited Shah Rukh Khan to host the show’s third season when Bachchan turned her down. The grand prize remained 2 crore (twenty million) rupees. The show’s third season began on January 22, 2007 with the airing of the first contestant as Prasenjit Sarkar, who was the last contestant to drop out midway through the second season due to Bachchan’s health. The show started well, but the show’s ratings dropped significantly due to the host change. The season ended on April 19, 2007 with a special finale.
Season 4: 2010
The show was restarted after a three-and-a-half-year hiatus. The fourth season (dubbed KBC 4) was hosted by the returning Amitabh Bachchan and began on October 11, 2010. This season aired four days a week, Monday through Thursday nights. The tagline for the season was “Koi Bhi Sawaal Chota Nahi Hota” (English: Every question is important. Literally: No question is small). The show moved from STAR Plus to Sony TV. The new logo, designed for the fourth season, featured the new Indian rupee symbol, unveiled earlier this year. Competitor Trial for Season 4 opened on August 2, 2010 at 9:00 PM IST. The total prize pool for this season was 1 crore (ten million rupees) and a demand jackpot of ₹ 5 crore (50 million rupees). The fourth season of the show was a great success thanks to the return of former host Amitabh Bachchan. The season ended on December 9, 2010.
During this season, like its international counterparts, several rule changes have been made to the show. The number of questions was reduced from 15 to 13 and, as in the US version of the show, a timer was added to each question.  There was a 30 second time limit for questions 1 and 2 and a 45 second time limit for questions 3 to 7. Questions 8 to 13 were not timed. Any unused time was invalidated and unsaved (unlike the US version which cashed in time for the last question). Like the version of the game in other countries, when a lifeline is used, the clock stops and when the time limit runs out, the contestant has been forced to leave with their current winnings. This season introduced the “Double Dip” and “Ask the Expert” life lines (similar to the American counterpart of the Millionaire watch format). Additionally, starting this season, Fastest Finger First contestants who previously came for an episode can now stay for a week. [C]
