Manoj Kumar Raina with Amitabh Bachchan

Manoj Kumar Raina has become the first crorepati winner of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 6’ (KBC 6).

Manoj۪s dream has turned into reality with his participation in the game show, and now the Indian Railways employee wants to rebuild his house in his scenic hometown of Chowgam.

“I feel I am in seventh heaven,” Raina gushed with excitement. He is the first contestant from Kashmir to be in the hot seat, won a Rs 1 crore, met his favourite actor, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, and is now capable of re-building his house in the Kashmir Valley, which he left over two decades back due to the turmoil there.

“My house in the Kashmir Valley was destroyed during the militancy. We were forced to leave the place, and since 1990, I۪ve been living in Jammu. Since then, I have wanted to make a house in Kashmir, and that۪s what I want to do with the money I have won,” said the Kashmiri pandit, who also wants to also help others of his tribe, in whatever little way he can.

‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 6’ is broadcast on Sony Entertainment Television Asia.
