Kaun Banega Crorepati, the reality game show, which has changed the lives of many people, giving them a new inspiration to live by, has found its first crorepati of KBC season 10. Binita Jain, a teacher from Guwahati, has the viewers stupefied by her effortless performance in KBC 10. Binita's winning moment in front of Bollywood's heartthrob, Amitabh Bachchan was, indeed, an inspiration to millions of Indians because of her compassion and positive attitude towards life, which she revealed in the show.
While social media is going gaga over her commendable success in KBC 10, Binita, in an exclusive interview with News Nation, shares her experience of actually being on Kaun Banega Crorepati and fulfilling her dreams.
Taking a trip down memory lane on her crorepati journey, Binita says, "It was very difficult from the very first day. It is not at all easy to be selected during the registration process. It entirely depends on luck".
"They ask you questions over phone and you would have to answer those without judging if the condition is favourable. Audition too is not an easy task though I found the 'fastest finger first' round the most difficult one on my way to the hot seat," Binita says.
On being asked how she was going to spend the whopping amount of Rs 1 crore, Binita said she will invest the entire prize money for a bright future of her son. "My son is a dentist by profession and most likely we will spend the money to set up a dental clinic for him," she says.
Binita, who has become an inspiration to many in her own right, further untangled her key to success. Sharing her winning secret, Binita says, "Everyone has their own problems. While some people know how to deal with it, others surrender before those hardships in life. It's just that you have to stay strong which will surely help you to go a long way towards success".
On a related note, host Amitabh Bachchan was also touched by her life story and called her an inspiration to those who keep fighting in life no matter what it throws at them.
Binita, the 46-year-old teacher from Guwahati, also shares her happiness at being right opposite Big B, someone she has always seen on television and newspapers. "It feels unimaginable. Amitabh Ji has made my journey a way more special. Otherwise it would have been a mere question-answer game show for me," an excited Binita says.
"Amitabh Ji is one of those big reasons for which I have always wanted to be a part of the show. It's like a dream come true moment for me. Though, the entire nation is crazy for him, for me, I am the biggest ever fan of the superstar," she reveals.
Binita then describes her victory in front of senior Bachchan as a 'Sone Pe Suhaga' (ice on the cake) moment of her life.
While on the hot seat during KBC's October 2 episode, the crorepati opened up on her personal life. Her husband was abducted by terrorists 15 years ago and all their efforts to bring him back home had gone in vain. Stating it as one of the big reasons that led her to the hot seat, Binita said, “I was distraught by whatever happened. But I gathered my courage for my children. Seeing their faces gave me confidence every day. I came out of the troubled times and started a new life. It started with few students and then as more started coming in, I knew this was my calling. That has been truly my Kab Tak Rokoge moment.”
Post that, Binita joined a coaching centre as a teacher in Guwahati. The latest crorepati winner teaches Social Studies and English to a group of 125 students in order to support her family’s financial situation and take care of her kids.
