- Birhesh Choudhary could easily answer questions up to Rs 12.5 lakh
- Big B gave him the title of 'Biggest Winner'
- Jayshree Jadhav took over later
Biresh Choudhary could answer all questions till Rs 12.50 lakh. (In case you missed watching the epic episode, here's a sneak peek).
As mentioned in his speech, on which auspicious day did Finance Minister Arun Jaitely present the Union Budget for 2017-18? Answer - Basant Panchami.
Big B later called up Mr Choudhary's wife and informed her that he has already won Rs 12.5 lakh.
In the question worth Rs 25 lakh, he used both the remaining lifelines but nevertheless, he played and conquered. The question was - Which of these companies supplied ballot box for independent India's first elections? (Options: Mahindra & Mahindra, Mysore Iron Works, Godrej & Boyce and Tata Steel. FYI, the answer is - Godrej & Boyce).
Question asked for 50 lakh.
Which of these Indian para-athletes won the gold medal in high jump at the Rio Paralympic Games?
A. Varun Singh Bhati
B. Thangavelu Mariyappan (Correct anwer)
C. Sharad Kumar
D. Devendra Jhajharia
And... Biresh Choudhary answered this too. With this, he became the first contestant to win Rs 50 lakh in the season.
However, he quit the show at Rs 50 lakh as he couldn't answer the question worth Rs 1 crore. (Big B really wished he became a crorepati and so did we). Amitabh Bachchan gave him the title of the 'Biggest Winner.'
The next contestant, selected after a fresh round of Fastest Finger First, was Jayshree Jadhav, from Maharashtra. She became emotional after Big B announced her name. Jayshree won Rs 3,000 and will play rest of the game on Friday.
