The latest episode of India’s beloved quiz show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, witnessed a historic moment as Jaskaran Singh, a 21-year-old student from Punjab, emerged as the first crorepati of this season. While Mr. Singh dared to take on the daunting ₹7 crore question, he ultimately chose to walk away with ₹1 crore.
The ₹7 crore question posed by the iconic host, Amitabh Bachchan, left viewers and the contestant on the edge of their seats. The question read as follows:
“According to Padma Purana, which king had to live as a tiger for a hundred years due to a deer’s curse?”
The options provided were:
A: Kshemadhurti B: Dharmadatta C: Mitadhvaja D: Prabhanjana
The correct answer, which would have made Jaskaran Singh a ₹7 crore winner, was D: Prabhanjana.
For the pivotal ₹1 crore question, Mr. Jaskaran utilized the double-dip lifeline, and when he delivered the correct answer, an exuberant Amitabh Bachchan embraced him in celebration.
Following Mr. Jaskaran’s remarkable victory, a promotional clip of the episode has been making waves on the internet, shared by the show’s creators on Instagram. The video introduces Jaskaran Singh to the world and sheds light on his background. Hailing from Khalara village in Punjab’s Tarn Taran district, Mr. Jaskaran’s path to success was marked by dedication and perseverance. He had to endure a four-hour daily commute to reach his college in the secluded region. Despite the challenges, he managed to complete his graduation, becoming one of the few to achieve this feat in the village.
In the video, Mr. Jaskaran expressed his long-standing aspiration to participate in Kaun Banega Crorepati, a dream he had nurtured for the past four years. Currently, he is preparing for the UPSC entrance exam and plans to make his first attempt next year.
Jaskaran Singh’s inspiring journey and remarkable achievement on Kaun Banega Crorepati 15 continue to serve as a source of motivation and inspiration for viewers across the nation.
