Jamshedpur’s Anamika Mazumdar is the first person to win Rs 1 crore on the current season 9 of Kaun Banega Crorepati. She made it to the jackpot question worth Rs 7 crore but decided to quit as she didn’t know the answer.
Anamika is a social worker and is married with two kids. A source told The Indian Express that host Amitabh Bachchan was impressed with how she played the game. “Anamika was a very practical and reasonable kind of a person who took each question very seriously.
When she reached the crore mark, even with no lifeline left, she reasoned all the options before choosing the right answer. Even Big B was surprised with her confidence and risk-taking attitude,” the source said.
With her prize money, Anamika said she wants to work towards uplifting the women of her region. Anamika revealed that she would like to invest it in her NGO called faith In India – Female Aura, which works for the upliftment of rural areas of Jharkhand.
