KBC 11: Cook Babita Tade wins ₹1 crore, can you answer the ₹7 cr question that stumped her?
Kaun Banega Crorepati, hosted by actor Amitabh Bachchan, has found its second ₹1 crore winner in the span of a week. After Sanoj Raj from Bihar took home ₹1 crore, Babita Tade from Maharashtra has become the second contestant to win the prize money this season.
Babita, a midday meal cook from Amravati in Maharashtra, realised she knew the answer to the ₹7 crore question only after she chose to opt out of the game with the prize money of ₹1 crore.
Babita gave the correct answer to the question: “Which poet in the court of Mughal ruler Bahadur Shah Zafar wrote the ‘Dastan - e- Gadhar a personal account of the 1857 revolt?” The options were A. Mir Taqi Mir B. Mohammad Ibrahim Zauq C. Zahir Dehlvi D. Abu Al-Kasim Firdausi. She used her last remaining lifeline, expert’s help, to come up with the right answer and won ₹1 crore. The correct answer was Zaheer Dehlvi.
She also tried to attempt the final question for ₹7 crore but chose to quit for not being sure about the answer. Host Amitabh Bachchan asked the jackpot question, “Which of these states has had the most number of its governors become presidents of India?” The options were: A. Rajasthan B. Bihar C. Punjab D. Andhra Pradesh
On being asked to guess the answer, Babita replied, Bihar which was indeed the right answer.
Babita had revealed on the show that she cooks midday meal for around 450 kids in a day and is fondly called ‘Khichdi Kaku’. She earns ₹1500 per month but still loves her job. She had said that she wanted to earn just enough prize money to buy a mobile phone.
Earlier, Sanoj Raj from Bihar’s Jehanabad district became the first contestant to win ₹1 crore this season. The IAS aspirant didn’t do any special preparation for the show and said, “I was studying for civil services, so I didn’t do any extra preparation.”
