Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) programme is popular for making dreams come true especially for the middle-class population. Although not everyone reaches the ₹1 crore mark, many contestants take home at least a fair amount. More than the winning amount, the one glimpse of the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan is enough to make the programme such a huge hit.
The program witnessed a crorepati in the recent show. Yes, Anamika Mazumdar became the first winner of ₹1 crore in KBC 9.
FIRST CROREPATI IN KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI SEASON 9
Anamika Mazumdar is a housewife and social worker from the Tata Steel city Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. The NGO worker helps to uplift the tribal women of the State. Her charitable organization Faith In India also works to help children going through difficult circumstances in Jharkhand.
On winning the amount, Big B advised her to use the money wisely.
After winning the show, Mr. Bachchan told me that I must use this huge amount wisely and not take any hasty decision. I want to wait for this excitement to subside and then take the right step.
Anamika also added,
I want to spend this money to help people. Although I am tempted to go back home and use it immediately, I want to come up with the best way to utilize such a big amount.
THE JACKPOT QUESTION
On winning ₹1 Crore, Anamika Majumdar got an opportunity to win ₹7 Crores. But, she decided to quit as she was not sure about the answer.
The moment Bachchan sir said that my answer is right I wanted to cry out of joy, but I didn’t want to cry in front of everyone else… I knew my kajal would get spoiled but I couldn’t contain my tears. After I won ₹50 lakh, I was taking a lot of time on every answer and I knew I wouldn’t get such a chance again. All my lifelines were over and I didn’t want to lose after reaching that point. I was confused in the final question, but the final decision of 2-3 seconds changed my life.
Being the first ₹1 crore winner, the money would help Anamika to fulfill her dreams of becoming a social worker.
