Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 got its second crorepati in Babita Tade.

Kaun Banega Crorepati, hosted by actor Amitabh Bachchan, has found its second Rs 1 crore winner in the span of a week. After Sanoj Raj from Bihar took home Rs 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 Rs 7 crore question only after she chose to opt out of the game with the prize money of Rs 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 Rs 1 crore. The correct answer was Zaheer Dehlvi.


She also tried to attempt the final question for Rs 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 Rs 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.
