 Monday’s episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, saw a Chhattisgarh student, Pankaj Kumar Singh, reach the hot seat. The young man won 12.5 lakh but could not answer a question worth 25 lakh. Can you answer it?

The question that left Pankaj confused and made him quit the game was: “In which present-day district did Shuja-ud-Daula build the Chhota Calcutta fort in the eighteenth century?”

The four options given were: Amethi, Ayodhya, Murshidabad and Varanasi. The correct answer was Ayodhya, which Pankaj could not guess.

In the episode, Pankaj told Amitabh Bachchan that he suffers from a rare spinal disease called Juvenile Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is a rare type of arthritis that causes pain in the back, joints, buttocks, thighs, heels, or shoulders.

The 30-year-old contestant participated in the show as a part of a special initiative called 'Asha Abhilasha’. As a part of the initiative of fulfilling the dreams of contestants, Pankaj Kumar Singh got to talk to his crush, Genelia Deshmukh, on the show.
