The famous game show Kaun Banega Crorepati 14 kept on meeting its second crorepati. Contestant Shashwat Goyal, who participated in Amitabh Bachchan’s show, got a chance to sit on the hotseat. In the show, he gave the correct answer to the question of one crore and became a millionaire, but then made a mistake on the question of 7.5 crores. See what was the question that Shashwat could not answer.
50 lakh question answered
In front of Shashwat Goyal, Amitabh Bachchan had put a question related to the film Slumdog Millionaire. The question was – Which of these questions did Danny Boyle describe the film as an inspiration for the Oscar-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire?
The options were Baazigar, Black Friday, Shool and Gangs of Wasseypur. The correct answer to this question was – Black Friday. By giving the correct answer, Shashwat won an amount of Rs 50 lakh.
This question asked for 75 lakhs
For an amount of 75 lakhs, Amitabh Bachchan asked Shashwat Goyal – Which of these food items has its origin in an Indian language in English? The options were ginger, banana, pumpkin or coffee.
To answer this question, Shashwat Goyal took the help of Audience Poll Lifeline. Host Amitabh Bachchan said that the audience’s help is usually not taken at this stage in the game. In the audience poll, the public told Ginger to be right. After this, the contestant decided to go with the audience after thinking and locked the option of ginger. This answer turned out to be absolutely correct and Shashwat won Rs 75 lakh. Coming to this stage, even if he had given eternal wrong answers, he would have gone home only after winning Rs 75 lakh. After this, Shashwat also gave the correct answer to the question of one crore rupees. Amitabh Bachchan was also very impressed by the way he played the game.

But today when Shashwat has reached the hotseat of KBC, his mother is not in this world. Amitabh Bachchan’s eyes also became moist after seeing Shashwat weeping remembering his mother.
