The story of bringing Ko Banchha Crorepati to Nepal
While doing higher education in India, we used to watch ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ with much enthusiasm. After completing education, we returned to Nepal and started working here.
Until just a few years ago, none of us believed that the franchise of programs like ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ can be brought to Nepal and it will turn out to be a success.
However, after the success of Nepal Idol, Himalaya Roadies and other reality TV shows, we felt people watch Nepali television too if programs are of good quality.
It is really exciting to bring in the first ever ‘Ko Banchha Crorepati’ game show with iconic host – Rajesh Hamal. We are sure we will be able to create a new benchmark of quality TV show in Nepal. We are expecting a massive registration of participants. We are expecting it to become a trendsetting show on Nepali television. We hope it to brings the whole family together and knowledge is shared in the most interesting and entertaining way.
We expect ‘Ko Banchha Crorepati’ will be a milestone for Nepali television audience.

Under this show, the contestants would have to tackle a series of multiple-choice questions to win cash prize up to 10 million Nepali rupees. There will be a total of 15 questions in a set and in case the contestant manages to answer all the questions correctly, he/she will win the amount of one crore Nepali rupees. As per the Indian series, there will be two other milestones apart from the One Crore—Nrs. 10,000 and Nrs. 320,000 and can walk away from the game with the milestone amount they crossed and quit.
