After the college was shown in the contestant's introduction video, Amitabh said, “There were so many good things in the video. One of them was that I studied in this college.”

“That hostel room is lovely, isn’t it? It’s in a corner. You can see the wall from that room. We used to jump that wall to watch movies,” he added. He shared how his degree never came to his use and also said, “Seriously, let me tell you that all the years I spent there proved to be a waste. I didn’t achieve anything. I just lost.”

Kaun Banega Crorepati 15 aired from Monday to Friday at 9 pm on Sony TV. The show also streamed on SonyLIV app.
