As you already know to register for KBC you need to send messages to their number that are ties up with some network provider like Airtel, Idea, Vodafone and others. So normally you are charged approx. Rs.4-6 per sms and according to the total Indian Population that includes 28 states, if 100 subscribers attempts a single message that will sum up to 6 x 100 x 20 x 28 = Rs.336000 so this is the amount that's raised within a time period of 15 min.

So now as you can see a sum of Rs.3.6 Lakh is generated within a time period of 15 min but you are allowed to vote for 24 Hours so you can easily Sum up the total amount. on how much money is generated using this single stream.

This was the first stream of income, the second stream is direct and even more wide depending on the advertiser and period he intends to advertise. Well normally watching the KBC show you might see some ads popping up like Cadbury, or others and rest are taken into consideration when the break comes in, so you are able to see all those ads like Airtel and other, so that sums up a lot of money.

So if you just make a total of all the money that's generated you could easily figure how easily these modern shows are making money and paying all those BIG hosts and surviving with their crew and staff members.

Well now we all assume this thing when we see Mr. Big-B on the stage of KBC, well we think how much this great personality is being paid to host this show and that too the way its meant too. Well there is not doubt that without Sir. Amitabh Bachchan this show went to the degraded line when Sharukh Khan stepped, well no one else then BIG-B could handle this show so well, so now how much you think he was getting paid that he stepped into to host this show, well according to reports he was paid approx.
