Amitabh Bachchan's quiz game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 7 now has its first crorepati.

Taj Mohammed Rangrez a history teacher from Udaipur, Rajasthan is the first contestant to walk away with the title of “Crorepati” on this game show.

On being crowned as the first crorepati of Kaun Banega Maha Crorepati, an elated Taj said, “It is a moment to rejoice & celebrate and it is extremely difficult to believe that ‘I am a Crorepati’. It is splendid indeed to know that I am also the first contestant this season to have won Rs. 1 crore. I was confident of the game and did not want to exhaust my lifelines at the start of the game itself. Now that I have won, my priority is to get my 7-year-old daughter, who is partially blind, treated. Also I wish to buy a house, educate three underprivileged girls and get two orphan girls married.”

A history teacher in Fatehgarh school, Taj Mohammed has been teaching for the past 10 years. He made his intentions clear when he answered every question confidently and kept away from using the lifelines until the 9th question for Rs 12.50 lakhs.

Taj was joined on stage by his elder sister on the show. Amitabh Bachchan complimented the fact on how well Taj played and that they already have a crorepati in the second week of the show.
