As Indians, we’re well aware of the importance exams play during our school years, what with last minute cramming and taking additional coaching from private tutors. Now, a past winner of reality game show Kaun Banega Crorepati is taking this concept a step further by offering coaching for wannabe contestants, at no added cost.

Anil Kumar Sinha, who won a crore on the show, has taken the initiative to help others get an entry to the hot seat round. “Many contestants are intelligent but lose their confidence due to nervousness in game shows. They are like a champagne bottle, once the cork is opened, the knowledge rushes forth. It took me 11 years to get an entry into the show, yet I didn’t lose patience, whereas others get discouraged and let it go,” says Sinha. He has written two books — one containing general knowledge questions and the other is a compilation of interviews of other winners on KBC and their journey.

Sinha got this idea of coaching aspirants when one of them contacted him to ask for tips. “Vineet from Coimbatore wanted to know how I made it and soon we got chatting on the phone. It wasn’t possible for us to meet in person, so when he asked if I could coach him daily for one hour over the phone, I agreed. I found the idea interesting and soon many others joined. I connect with people on Facebook and later guide them through emails. Two aspirants even come home to take guidance from him.”

 Sinha is eager to help as many people as possible and three contestants he coached have reached the hot seat. “Many offered money in lieu of my services but I refused them as I have got my jackpot from KBC. Now if I can help others, it would mean much more to me.” He only charges for the two books he has published.
