Kaun Banega Crorepati has created another millionaire this season. Sunmeet Kaur Sawhney is the first woman to win the ultimate prize of Rs. 5 crore. The 37-year old is a high school graduate and works as a tutor. A source says, “She was confident and answered all questions coolly.

When she won Rs. 25 lakh, she said she could now clear her husband’s loan. Surprisingly, she had two life-lines remaining for the jackpot question.

The host, Amitabh Bachchan, even advised her to walk away with Rs. 1 crore, since if she got the answer to the next question wrong she would get only Rs. 1.65 lakh. But she went ahead with a prayer and won.”
