Himani Bundela, a teacher from Agra, became the first crorepati on 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 13'.
She decided to quit the game with Rs 1 crore as she didn't know the answer to the Rs 7 crore jackpot question.
Monday's episode ended on Rs 50 lakh question that Himani answered correctly. And on Tuesday, the 25-year-old attempted the Rs 1 crore question without any lifelines.
Interestingly, the Rs 1 crore question had a connection to actor Radhika Apte.
