Agar Rs 7 crore ka question attempt hojaata toh I would have been more happy
I’ve been trying to be on KBC for the last four years and would always imagine how it would be when I will go on the show. Whenever someone went Rs 1 crore, I would put that moment on repeat and keep watching it, hoping that one day I would create it. Finally, my imagination came true and I won Rs 1 crore. Par agar Rs 7 crore ka question attempt hojaata toh I would have been more happy.
Amitabh sir is such a huge star but he never makes anyone feel his stardom
When the the episode began I told myself they have started the show but Amitabh Bachchan sir hasn’t arrived yet. Then I saw him coming running and making a dashing entry, I froze for next five minutes and was completely blank. I couldn’t believe that I’m sitting in front him. I kept asking myself is he is the same megastar who I’ve grown up watching and have seen him on KBC. I’ve immense respect for him in my heart. He is such a huge star but he never makes anyone feel his stardom or that he’s the same Amitabh Bachchan, who we see on big screen or on television. Unse baat karke Bilkul bhi nahi laga ke main Sadi ke Mahanayak se baat kar raha hoon. He’s such a humble soul and he did not make me feel the that he’s a legendary star.
He hugged me and said “kamaal Kar diya mundeya”
When he announced that I was the winner and have won Rs 1 crore, he hugged me and said “kamaal Kar diya mundeya” that I can’t forget ever. Another moment was when he announced my name for the fastest finger first. The hug was very special.
My village is close to India-Pakistan border during war crisis they ask us to vacate our home
My family is my priority and I would invest in them. I would like to use the money for my higher studies and my family. This is not the final destination, next year will be attempting civil services. I plan to buy a house where there are no insecurities. Our village is very close to the border and during 2017, when there was a clash between India and Pakistan, they asked the entire village to vacate. They asked us to go to a safe place. Ghar se safe kya place ho sakti hai… and we had to leave our home. So the danger is always there. Agar ghar chod ke jaana pade toh Woh ghar he kaisa…
My family was very happy and got emotional as well
The biggest compliment for my family was when Mr Amitabh Bachchan sir informed them that I’d won Rs 1 crore. When the episode aired he did a video call to my parents. It was a surprise for me and it was totally unexpected. At my home, we never do video calls and all and it has never happened. He first called them when I won Rs 25 lakh, then he again called them informing them that I’d won Rs 1 crore. He spoke to them in Punjabi and said “Ek crore jitt Gaya ye”. They were very happy and got emotional as well.
