Sushil Kumar is the first to win Rs 5 crore on KBC 5

MUMBAI: Sushil Kumar, a computer operator and tutor by profession hailing from Bihar, is the first to win Rs 5 crore this season on Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Amitabh Bachchan.

“Today, he has come and won five crore in the show, which is the top prize. Any person can achieve a lot, if he takes upon any challenge and is determined to achieve something in life. He is a living example of this theory,” said Bachchan.

Kumar, surprised by what he had achieved said, “I had not even thought that I would be able to win such a huge amount and I haven’t thought about what I am going to do. First of all, I don’t own a house; my house is not in a good shape. So, when I came here, I had thought that I would get my house renovated, but now I am going to get a new house,” said Kumar.

Kumar added, “It is a very big thing for me to meet Amitabh Bachchan. I used to see him on the television, so when I came here I touched his feet because I was unsure if I would be able to reach this stage, since ‘Fastest Finger First’ is very tough and there is no guarantee if one would play the game, even if he is very knowledgeable. So, I hugged him and I think this is a big achievement for me.”
