On Tuesday night, Ajeet Kumar from Bihar became the fourth contestant to win Rs 1 crore on the Amitabh Bachchan-hosted game show Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11. However, he could not win the ultimate prize money of Rs 7 crore as he chose to quit after winning a crore.
Despite playing the game smartly, Ajeet stated that he had no clue about the final question of the show which was -- 'Who is the first cricketer to score two T20 international fifties on the same day in two different matches?' The options were Nawroz Mangal, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Shahzad and Shakib Al Hasan. After quitting, Ajeet guessed the answer to be Nawroz Mangal, whereas the correct answer was Mohammad Shahzad.
Later, while talking to indianexpress.com, Ajeet Kumar revealed what he wanted to do with the winning amount.
"The money is very big and it will definitely help me in getting a better lifestyle for myself and my family. We can easily use it for all our necessities. Also, I want to help people around me who need financial aid, so a sum will also be spent there. And if it’s possible, I would like to help in forming rehabilitation centres for convicts,” said the contestant from Hajipur, Bihar who is currently preparing to be a jail superintendent.
Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 airs every Monday-Friday at 9 pm on Sony TV.
