  • There will be four questions in the ‘Sapta Koti Sandook’ a brand new feature, that will give the contestants a chance to win from Rs 1 crore to 3 crore, 5 crore and ultimately 7 crore
  •  ‘Fastest Finger First’ round now becomes a ‘Best out of three’ and the winner at the end enters the Hot Seat
  • More choice of lifelines – ‘Flip the question’ (Alat Palat) returns in place of ‘Ask the expert’ and ’50:50′ comes back in place of ‘Double Dip’
  • A new lifeline called ‘Power Paplu’ has been introduced. This lifeline will aid those who seek to revive any already used lifeline
