Mumbai: Sony Entertainment Television’s coveted gameshow, ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati – Season 15’ on Tuesday found its first crorepati in Jaskaran Singh.
Belonging to a small village at the cusp of the Indian border, Jaskaran’s story is an epitome of inspiration.
The 21-year-old would undertake a journey of two hours each to go to his college because he knew that knowledge is a leveller, which would take him one step closer to his dreams. Back home, his college studies were harmoniously balanced with UPSC and KBC preparations. And all his hard work and dedication bore fruit when Jaskaran found himself sitting opposite megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
The glorious host of KBC couldn't help but be entranced by the whirlwind of ambition and courage that Jaskaran brought to the show.
On the stage, amidst excitement and emotions, he revealed how his family rallied around him to give him the gift of education – which he now yearns to repay with the glittering success he's achieved on KBC. Armed with an indomitable spirit, this young firebrand declared with flair that his journey was paved with perseverance, reminding us that the real adventure of learning only commences beyond the school walls.
His dreams don’t stop at 1Cr, as Jaskaran Singh unveiled his aspirations to become an IAS officer. Mirroring the essence of ‘badlaav’ that has been brought alive in this edition of the quiz show, "The leap from KBC study sessions to holding that 1 crore rupee check is a symbol of transformation. My heartfelt thanks go to Amitabh Bachchan Sir, for bestowing me with his life lessons that emboldened me to take calculated risks. Gratitude also to my family, whose unwavering support and advice guided me to the hotseat.
“This victory is just a prelude to a grander ambition: I want to serve our nation as an IAS Officer. As I look ahead, I see a dual purpose for these winnings—securing family joy and funding explorations of the places I've studied. This isn't just a prize; it's a chance to shape my future," Singh said. (UNI)
