Charna Gupta takes INR 50 lakh home when she has no life-lines left at the INR 1-crore question
Kaun Banega Crorepati is in its season 11 now, hosted by Shahanshah himself. In this season, Charna Gupta was the first person to reach this high. She used all the life-lines until the 1-crore question and got stuck up at that question. She is a government servant as a labor inspector from Madhya Pradesh.
She was just 2 questions away from the 5-crore question. But as there were no life-lines left and if she answered that question wrong, it would be of no value to her. As she decided to skip, she secured the amount won up till then and that was a huge amount of INR 50 lakhs. The question which she ditched was the Battle of Kanglatongbi which happened in 1944, was fought near which present time place?
For everyone’s curiosity and eagerness to know the right answer, Amitabh Bachchan asked Charna to answer, if she had to select one. She answered Imphal, Manipur’s capital, and that was actually the right answer.
Shahanshah applauded her by saying, “well played Charna”. A short clip for you can be seen by clicking here: https://bit.ly/2ZsSLZf
Amitabh Bachchan said in a press conference related to the show that the participant’s stories fetch him again and again to this show. This is his 10th season as one season was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan. There is a new segment added in the show called a flip question, in which contestants will be shown 11 topics and they can choose one for themselves and a question will be asked on that topic.
