Meet first crorepati
At the age of just 25, Himani Bundela has become the first crorepati of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ season 13. When Himani was 15 years old, she lost her eyesight in an accident. The financially normal family did four operations on Himani’s eyes, but the eyesight did not return.
Himani Bundela, who worked as a teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya, narrated all the experiences of her struggle from her childhood to losing her eyesight, winning crores of rupees in KBC. Know his story from him:-
Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be a part of reality shows. I was fascinated by reality shows when I was 5/6 years old. When KBC started, I loved this show because it was about knowledge. I had made up my mind at that time that one day I want to go to the show and meet Amitabh Bachchan sir, Times of India reported.
She said “I used to sit with my friends at night and play our quiz show. We used to play the title music of KBC and play games. And whenever the new season of KBC aired our interest in the show increased further. Finally, when the online registration started, I was sure that I would be able to make it to the show someday. It’s been a long journey.
‘Trying since 2009 ‘
I was fond of watching TV since childhood. When I used to watch reality shows and see people performing, I used to think that can I also come on TV?
Then I watched KBC and realized that in this show we can go on a common sense basis and then I decided that one day I have to sit on that hot seat and meet Amitabh sir.
Now the world has also seen that I not only reached the hot seat but also won one crore rupees. I cannot describe this experience in words. But it is not a sudden success.
I had started trying to register in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ from 2009 itself, but every time the attempt failed. Registration could not be done. Meanwhile, my world changed, my eyesight was gone, but ten years later in 2019, the registration was done, but I did not get a chance to sit on the hot seat. The registration was successful thrice in a row from 2019 to 2021 and finally got the chance in 2021.
