Assam’s Binita Jain created history on Tuesday’s episode of Kaun BanegaCrorepati by becoming the season’s first contestant to win Rs 1 crore on the show. The tuition teacher mom of two played exceedingly well and earned a tonne of praise from host Amitabh Bachchan as well. Host Amitabh Bachchan exploded with excitement as he announced that Binita had become the season’s first crorepati and she too was over the moon with happiness.
After gaining a little composure, Bachchan asked her the final question for Rs 7 crore, “Who invented the first stock ticker in 1867?” If she got it wrong, she would have gone home with just Rs 3.2 lakh. Upon seeing the question, Binita confessed that she had no idea what a stock ticker is.
Binita took the wise decision to quit the game with her Rs 1 crore but Bachchan asked her to choose an answer so that the right one could be revealed. She chose option A: Edward Calahan and turns out, it was indeed the right answer. Bachchan called it ‘unbelievable’.
