- The episode had questions on politics, mythology, music and films
- Big B said "Well played" to the contestant
- This was this season's first 1 crore question
Monday's episode of Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 was a nail-biting one. The episode began with contestant Charna Gupta from Madhya Pradesh, who is a Labour Inspector by profession. Charna Gupta impressed Amitabh Bachchan at the very beginning with her sheer confidence and the ease with which she tackled the questions fired at her. But the highpoint of the episode was when she correctly answered the question worth Rs 50 lakh and played for Rs 1 crore. Charna had exhausted all her lifelines by then as Amitabh Bachchan kept reminding her but she seemed determined to play for a crore. This is the first time on this season of Kaun Banega Crorepati that a contestant has won Rs 50 lakh and attempted the Rs 1 crore question.
"In 1944, the Battle of Kanglatongbi was fought near which present day Indian state capital?" Amitabh Bachchan read out the question from his screen. Charna Gupta, who had promptly been answering all this while, confessed that she's confused about the options given on her screen and appeared to ponder over the right answer. Though she wanted to give the question a try, she exclaimed that she would lose her Rs 50 lakh as well if it turns out to be the wrong answer. To everyone's dismay, Charna Gupta decided to quit and take home the Rs 50 lakh cheque.
Amitabh Bachchan showered her with congratulatory messages and applauded her with his signature phrase: "Well played!" Well played indeed. However, before Charna Gupta resigned from her Hot-Seat, Big B asked her what would she have answered if she were to. "Imphal," said she when Amitabh Bachchan told her that would have been the correct answer.
