Before Kaun Banega Crorepati 10, here are 9 questions that won crores. Can you answer them?
Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati, the country’s most popular game show, is coming back with its 10th season on Monday. The host will bring back a tonne of money, some interesting contestants and a whole lot of difficult questions back on our television screens.
As the show added another season to its long list, we look back at all the times contestants won big or lost even bigger on Kaun Banega Crorepati. It is a well known fact that as a contestant answers more and more questions correctly and collects more cheques signed by Amitabh, the questions also get more difficult. While the initial few questions ask you to guess a song’s words or complete an old idiom, the later few ask you about the most peculiar things most of us have no clue about.
A few bright minds are able to answer them correctly while some overconfident ones take the leap and end up losing a big amount. We bring you the question that made Harshvadhan Navathe a crorepati, the question that was posed to the first man to win Rs 5 crore, Sushil Kumar, and the question asked of the first and only winners of Rs 7 crore, brothers Achin and Sarthak Narula. Can you answer any of these correctly?

On Tuesday Amitabh made “KBC official with the media” after which he penned a heartfelt note on his blog. “It’s been 18 years of KBC,” wrote the veteran star while adding, “... and this be the 10th season .. barring a few interludes and it being hosted by Shah Rukh (Khan) and several stars for different regions of the nation, when it runs in their State, this programme has been the anchor that has provided life changing moments for the common man and woman ... and that really is the attraction ever ...”
