Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan’s show Kaun Banega Crorepati’s (KBC) Thursday episode was a roller coaster with contestant Viresh Chaudhary. Viresh was the first person in this season to win Rs 50 lakh, leaving Amitabh was surprised as well as proud.

Till the episode, Viresh had exhausted two lifelines– Jodidar and Audience poll. The contestant had crossed the second level and where he earned Rs 3,20,000. Viresh got stuck on the question of Rs 25,00,000, where he used another life line, video call to a friend. But, his IAS officer friend wasn’t sure about the answer. Viresh took a leap of faith and guessed the right answer. And the answer won him Rs 25 lakh.

Moreover, he managed to tackle the Rs 50 lakh question cleverly, and got that answer right as well. He was tempted to take a punt for the Rs 1 crore question, but not knowing the answer he smartly quit.
