Season 13 of the game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ has found yet another winner: Geeta Singh Gaur, a housewife, successfully answered the 1 crore question and will be shown attempting the jackpot 7 crore question.
Geeta, according to a Sony Entertainment Television commercial, is a 53-year-old housewife who has spent her entire life raising her children. However, in her “second inning,” she desired to live for herself. She was also seen driving a jeep with her dog at her side. The advertisement concludes with KBC host Amitabh Bachchan yelling as he announces Geeta has won one crore rupees.
She is the season’s third crorepati, following Himani Bundela, an Agra teacher, and IAS candidate Sahil Ahirwal.
Himani, a visually impaired participant, was involved in an accident in 2011, which caused her to lose her vision over time. “Before going on the set, I did not know how will they look at me. Will they be sympathetic or treat me equally? I was also competing with general contestants, who of course had an upper hand when it comes to usage of technology and computers. All my fears vanished soon as everyone looked at me with dignity and treated me so normally. That gave me more confidence,” she told Indianexpress.com.
Meanwhile, during the episode in which Sahil won, he admitted his love for Taapsee Pannu and even peppered Amitabh Bachchan with questions about her. “I was so excited when Amitabh Bachchan said that I had answered the ₹1 crore question correctly. I can’t believe that I am the second crorepati of the season. When I first got selected for Kaun Banega Crorepati, I just wanted to play really well. I didn’t come to the show for the money. All I wanted was to use my knowledge in the right way on such a big platform. I wanted to give my 100 percent, which I did.”
‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ is a show which allows netizens to sit on the hot seat with host Amitabh Bachchan, who asks them a series of general knowledge questions for which they keep winning cash prices.
