Actors Pankaj Tripathi and Pratik Gandhi recently appeared on megastar Amitabh Bachchan's popular quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 13'.
The two actors had a gala time on the show during the 'Shaandaar Shukravaar' episode and were seen sharing interesting anecdotes from their professional and personal lives.
The actors were playing to win a big amount for charities they support and managed to earn Rs 12.5 lakh.

After exhausting all their lifelines, the actors agreed that there is no 'Ishq in taking this 'Risk'. Pratik Gandhi said "Risk hai toh iskk hai" sounds good only as a dialogue and he doesn’t want to apply it on the show.
The question for Rs 25 lakh was:

Pratik Gandhi and Pankaj Tripathi decided that it would be best to quit the show with Rs 12.5 lakh in hand. But host Amitabh asked them to make a guess anyway before leaving. They chose Mahabalipuram, however, the right answer was Lothal.
The two actors had a lot of fun with the host and relived many memories from their childhood and early days in the film industry. On the other hand, Pratik recalled how he is often told that he earned an ‘overnight success’ after Hansal Mehta's 'Scam 1992'. However, he added that for him, nothing was overnight as it took him 14 years of hard work to taste the success.
