She hails from Chandigarh, but Sawhney has been staying in Mumbai since a few years now. A home tutor, she is married to an actor who has done some small roles in Hindi films and has two daughters.  "We have rented a place in Mumbai and have been staying here since a few years," she said.

She said she couldn't believe she had cracked the jackpot, until the show's host, megastar Amitabh Bachchan hugged her. "My husband also had to come and tell me that I had won," she told IANS.

Her plans? "I want to sponsor some rituals of our Punjabi tradition. So, a part of the amount will go there. We will decide what to do with the rest of it later," added the 37-year-old.

In the last season of KBC, Bihar's Sushil Kumar had won the top prize.
