Sony Entertainment Television Asia will be launching the eighth season of its blockbuster gameshow ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ next month. BizAsia has exclusive launch details.

BizAsia can confirm that ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ will launch on Sunday 17th August with a special featuring TV comedian Kapil Sharma.

After this, the channel will revert back to its regular editions of the show with 90-minute episodes planned between Monday 18th August and Thursday 28th August, which will air between 20:30 and 22:00. Then, from Monday 1st September, the series will run for 60-minutes at 20:30 Monday to Thursday.

It will be interesting to see what other changes the channel will be making during this as other fictions will be disrupted due to the change in schedule. One thing is for sure Amitabh Bachchan’s fiction ‘Yudh’ will end in mid-August.
