"She never listened to her parents, and so she was thrown out of her house and went to her grandmother. She was treated the same way there as well. "But she continued to study on her own and she managed to get to the KBC hot seat. She won Rs 25 lakh and when I asked that what she will do with the cheque, she said she will give it to her father and tell him that even a daughter can do this."
