Akshayjyot was not sure about the correct answer. So, he used the 50-50 lifeline. With this, he was left with two options, Gaza and Gazipur. Though he was sure of Gaza as the answer, he didn’t want to take a risk and decided to quit the show. Upon quitting, he guessed the answer as Gaza, which was correct. However, happy with his decision, Akshayjyot took home Rs 6,40,000.
The next contestant to take the hot seat was Akash Waghmare, a delivery person from Pune, Maharashtra. He won Rs 10,000 on Tuesday’s episode and will continue playing in Wednesday’s episode.
