Hussain Bohra of Pune, Maharashtra has won Rs 50 lakh by answering 14 questions and not taking a chance with the last one – that could have got him Rs one crore – in the 13th season of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' where the quizmaster is Superstar Amitabh Bacchan.


Hussain decided against risking losing what he had earned and opted to quit the game when he didn’t know the answer to a question that could have won him Rs one crore in case he replied correctly.

Hussain did not regret his decision.


Had he taken any risk, - as it turned out later – he would have lost big money and his Rs 50 lakh would have come down to Rs 3.3 lakh. After he quit the game as per the rules of KBC, and because the answer they were thinking was wrong. Since the fifteenth question had landed him in trouble and by the time he reached this point, all four of his lifelines had been exhausted, he could not take any help.


The question was, "Which of the eight Hazari peaks has the lowest height. When was it scaled the last time?"


In Amitabh Bachchan's fastest 'Finger Triple Test' in 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', Hussain Bohra gave the correct answer in the shortest possible time. He not only answered all three questions correctly but also answered two questions in the shortest time. With a time of 5.49 seconds, he managed to reach the hot seat and sit in front of the Megastar of Indian films to test his knowledge.


Hussain has done his BBA in Marketing and runs a business with his father. Talking to Awaz-The Voice, he said that because of good general knowledge, he could reach 5 million and wherever he was stuck, he used lifelines to help him.Hussain says that his habit of reading newspapers for the last 15 years has helped him answer KBC questions. Although his target was 3.2 or at the most 6.4 lakh, he won 5 million.


The popular television reality program on Sony TV has changed the lives of hundreds of people since it was launched in 2020. 


Hussain Bohra is one more name added to the list of lucky ones; he not only won a good amount but also shot into national fame with his answers.


In the 36th and 37th episodes of the same season, in the special episode on October 12 on the occasion of Durga Puja, Hussain played the game intelligently, with patience and discretion. He used lifelines whenever he got stuck.

There was only one lifeline left for Hussain till he won 25 lakhs. The 14th question was, 'Which animal has the largest and heaviest brain in the world?'

The answer was Sperm whale and expert Anuja Chauhan helped him with this. This help made Hussain win half a crore.


The next was the last question of the show and by answering it right, he could have won Rs one crore. Hussain says that this money will help him in fulfilling his responsibilities.
