Sanoj Raj from Jehanabad, Bihar on Friday emerged as the first contestant to win Rs 1 crore on Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11.
Post his big win, Sanoj spoke exclusively to indianexpress.com, “It was a great time on the game show. I also managed to earn a good amount and am so excited to become the first crorepati of the season. KBC is a show that I have followed for a long time. When I would correctly answer questions asked on the show, I would calculate that I could have won so much money (laughs). That’s how I decided to try my luck as soon as I turned 18. After a long wait, I managed to clear the audition. It has been a long journey.”
The Amitabh Bachchan-hosted reality game show Kaun Banega Crorepati has been edutaining us for almost two decades. The show is an Indian adaptation of the British show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
As is apparent by all the hullabaloo on social media, the show’s popularity has not waned. The producers make small changes to the format once in a while to make it seem fresh to the audience. The promos of the show feature human interest stories, so the viewers feel connected with them.
The current season of Kaun Banega Crorepati began airing from August 19.
