Sony Entertainment Television Asia will be pleased as its gameshow ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ crowns its first ever jackpot winner.
In the episode to air on Monday 22nd November, Rahat Taslim, a homemaker from a remote village near Ranchi becomes the first Indian woman to win the most prestigious title in the annals of Indian television. She will walk away Rs. 1 Crore richer.
Once on the hot seat, the gritty housewife-embroidery teacher from yore dug in. And sailed through. Rahat�۪s calm logical answers and reasoning, her composure impressed one and all, right from the host Amitabh Bachchan, to the in-studio audience and the programming crew.
An excited Rahat Taslim said, “I am happy and feeling very special today. Having won KBC, I feel like a celebrity myself! KBC has helped me conquer my dreams and am really grateful to Sony. Bachchan Sir, made me very comfortable. He’s such a big personality, yet he was talking to me, as if he’s a common man himself. My wish to open a boutique & give high education for my kids is now possible!”
The timing couldn�۪t have been better for the channel as recently rival Colors has been hogging the limelight with its reality show ‘Bigg Boss’, which airs in the same timeslot. Sure Monday’s episode will ramp up the numbers for the channel.
