Amitabh Bachchan-hosted quiz show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 finally saw a contestant reaching the second last question for Rs 1 crore.
Charna Gupta, a labour inspector from Madhya Pradesh, successfully won Rs 50 lakh but chose to quit before taking the ‘crorepati’ leap.
Charna had already used all her lifelines and chose to not attempt the Rs 1 crore question, in order to not lose her existing price money. The question read out by Amitabh was, “In 1944, the Battle of Kanglatongbi was fought near which present day Indian state capital?”
While Charna decided to not attempt the show, Amitabh asked her about her probable answer, had she not quit the game. Unfortunately, Charna’s answer was indeed the right answer. Imphal is the capital of Manipur, near which the battle was fought in 1944. However, she eventually received the Rs 50 lakh cheque from the celebrity host who repeatedly said, “Well played!”
