In the November 26 episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 12, Ankush Sharma who hails from Jammu, appeared on the show. He played a decent game but got stuck at the Rs 50 lakh question. As a result, Ankush decided to take home prize money of Rs 25 lakh.
The Rs 50 lakh question which he couldn’t answer was: In the book "Q&A" by Vikas Swarup, what is the subject of the last question asked to Ram Mohammad Thomas in the TV quiz show? It came with the following options- a) Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 29 b) Mumtaz Mahal's father c) Three Musketeers d) Costard, a Shakespeare character.
The right answer is a) Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 29. Amitabh Bachchan then shared that Danny Boyle’s Academy Award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire was loosely based on the book.
In the episode, Ankush also spoke about his admiration for Shah Rukh Khan whilst answering a question on Hrithik Roshan. He revealed that his favourite film is Mohabbatein and that SRK's films have inspired him a lot with regard to romance. Mr Bachchan replied by talking about his fondness for the actor. Big B called Shah Rukh one of the most talented actors in the country, and agreed that he is the ultimate romantic hero of Bollywood.
For the unversed, Ankush is a vertically challenged man and he also shed light on his personal struggles that come with the same.
