Visually Impaired Contestant Becomes First Crorepati in KBC 13
The famous Sony Entertainment quiz show – Kaun Banega Crorepati (or KBC) – got its first Crorepati winner this season. She is Himani Bundela, a visually impaired contestant from Agra. She was accompanied by her father. She answered the 1 Crore question correctly. When coming to the last question (carrying with it a prize value of Rs 7 Crores), she was unsure of how to answer. So, she quit the show with her prize money of Rs 1 Crore.
This is the 13th season of KBC. Hosted by the living legend Amitabh Bachchan, the show is famous for its excellent hosting by Big B; and for his sense of humour.
