The 13th season of the popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ KBC is currently underway and is hosted by Big B Amitabh Bachchan. Himani Bundela has become the first millionaire of this season. The rest of the contestants are trying their intelligence and luck. When the episode, which aired on Thursday (September 2), began, 35-year-old Samiksha Srivastava was on the hot seat. She had won Rs 10,000 in the previous episode. Unable to answer the question for Rs 12.5 lakhs, she walked out of the game on Thursday, winning Rs 6.4 lakh.
During the game show, Samiksha shared that she once lived near the host Amitabh Bachhan’s Mumbai bungalow Pratiksha. She shared that she was a student in Mumbai and sometimes caught glimpses of Amitabh Bachchan. She further added that she still remembers the day he waved at her.
As for Samiksha’s time on the hot seat, she used the Audience Poll lifeline during the question for Rs 40,000 and gave the correct answer. She used the lifeline Flip the Question to answer the eighth question for Rs 80,000. She used the Ask the Expert lifeline to win Rs 1.6 lakh on the 9th question. After ending all of her lifelines, she managed to win Rs 6.4 lakh by answering the following questions. However, she did not know the answer to the 12th question for Rs 12.50 lakh, and she didn’t even have a lifeline in her hand. So, she decided to quit the game for Rs 6.4 lakh.
The question she couldn’t answer was, ‘Who, among these, is India’s first woman mining engineer?’ The options were Chandrani Prasad Verma, Mohana Singh, Rajeshwari Chatterjee and A Lalitha. The correct answer was Chandrani Prasad Verma.
During the Q&A session, the show’s host Amitabh Bachchan usually interacts with the contestants. He also introduces them to the audience. During the conversation, Samiksha shared the story about her living near Amitabh’s bungalow and catching glimpses of him. At that time, she was a student, and the house where she was staying was near Bachchan’s bungalow. “Once Amitabh looked at me and waved his hand, She can not forget that day,” Samiksha said. According to the India Today reports, she is working as a review assistant vice president at a multinational company that manufactures power conductors for transmission lines.
