Kaun Banega Crorepati is among those shows on Indian Television which top the TRP charts as soon as they come up with their fresh season. Hosted by none other than Amitabh Bachchan, KBC is famous for bringing out to the country the most inspirational stories and people with great knowledge.
Earlier, KBC Season 8 found its first 7 crores winner in the Narula brothers, Achin and Sarthak. who hail from Delhi.
But the door of 7 crores of this ninth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati wasn't open until Anamika Majumdar, a housewife and NGO worker from Jharkhand broke the jinx and the show finally got its first one-crore winner.
Let's know more about Majumdar.
KBC 9's first crorepati Anamika Majumdar, 41, is a social worker. She is married and has two kids. She runs an NGO called Faith In India - Female Aura. Anamika will invest her winning amount in her NGO that works for rural areas of Jharkhand.
Majumdar, who hails from Jamshedpur says "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."
"After winning one crore, 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," she said according to Hindustan Times report.
After she won Rs. 1 crore, she was given the choice to play the jackpot question for Rs 7 crores, but she decided to not take that risk. Reviving the moment when she was declared a crorepati, Majumdar says, "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 Rs 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 by the final question, but the final decision of 2-3 seconds changed my life," says Majumdar.
