As India gears-up to come together once again to be mesmerized with KBC, Jio, the lead associate is set to add several new and first-of-its kind integrations for the benefit of millions who’d be viewing the show on their TVs or mobiles. To begin with you will also see a Jio-contestant at the show during the Fastest-Finger-First rounds.
