Anupa Das, who made it to the “hot seat” on Tuesday’s episode, told Amitabh Bachchcan that it took her 20 years to come on the show. After winning ₹1 crore, Big B complimented her saying, “Ye koi saadharan khel nahi tha aapka, adbhut khel tha ye.” The 42-year-old told Amitabh that she never imagined that she would win ₹1 crore.
During the show, Das opened up about her mother suffering from gallbladder cancer. In an extremely emotional and powerful moment, she also mentioned the help she received from strangers for her mother. Now she wants to spend all her winnings on her mother’s treatment. After the victory, Bachchan contacted Das’ mother through a video call.
