Amitabh Bachchan‘s iconic show Kaun Banega Crorepati is back on television after a gap of three years (the last season was aired in 2014) and the audience is loving every bit of it. The show is said to have received the highest number of registrations, this year. The ninth season opened to great numbers and still continues to be one of the most-watched shows in the nation. Clearly, people are rejoicing the return of this cult show.
If reports are to be believed then the makers have already found their first crorepati of the season. Sony TV released a promo of the show yesterday in which a contestant named Biresh Choudhary is shown to have reached the 15th question, for which the prize money is rupees one crores. While it still remains to be seen whether he managed to cross the milestone, a certain section of the media has it that he has won ‘one crore’ rupees. If this piece of news turns out to be true then Brijesh will become the first one, in season 9, to not only have reached the 15th question but also to have won it. But, the question that still stands is whether he will go for the next question for 7 crore rupees.
