Comedian Gaurav Kapoor is a famous standup comic and has tons of viral videos to his name. But a recent event has left him rather confused and wondering, “Ye kaisa achievement hai?” He shared a video on Instagram to share this rhetorical question while talking about his name appearing on the game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) hosted by actor Amitabh Bachchan. Gaurav Kapoor hilariously found out his name was used as an option for one of the questions.
