- Big B continued the game with Mohita Sharma in tonight's episode
- She is an IPS officer
- Big B also played the game with Jwala Jit Singh from Gorakhpur
Tonight's episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 was quite special. Host Amitabh Bachchan welcomed the second crorepati of this season, IPS officer Mohita Sharma. As the show started, Big B continued the game with Mohita, who had played till 9th question on Monday's episode. Without using any lifeline, she answered the question for Rs 3,20,000 with ease. She had used only one lifeline in the previous episode. Her knowledge about various subjects and style of playing the game sensibly left Amitabh Bachchan quite impressed. The Rs 1 crore question that made Mohita Sharma the second crorepati of this season was - "Which of these explosives was first patented in 1898 by German chemist Georg Friedrich Henning and first used in World War II?" The options were - HMX, RDX, TNT and PETN. The correct answer was RDX.
For answering the Rs 1 crore question, Mohita Sharma took the help of expert Pankaj Pachauri.
