New Delhi: The popular quiz show, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 12’ (KBC) keeps everyone glued to their seats, be it the contestants or the audience watching from their homes. Trying his luck for the Rs 1 crore question on December 23 was contestant Shivam Rajput from Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. Failing to answer the question, he went home with Rs 50 lakhs.
Shivam played well during the entire episode while retaining his lifelines for the longest time. He was a rollover contestant who started the game in Tuesday’s (December 22) episode. However, Shivam had exhausted all his lifelines till the Rs 50 lakh question.
Answering the Rs 50 lakh question, Shivam played for Rs 1 crore. As he did not know the answer and was left with no lifelines, he quit the show winning a large sum of Rs 50 lakh.
Here’s the question that stumped Shivam.
