Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati keeps making headlines. This is the 11th season of his show.

On Tuesday, Senior Bachchan began the show by wishing everyone on Dussehra. Before starting the game show with rollover contestant Shailesh Bansal, Amitabh Bachchan shared an interesting anecdote about his life.

The Gurugram contestant had won Rs 80,000 in the last episode with two of his lifelines still intact. Shailesh didn’t know the answer to the 9th question, which was related to sports. He chose ‘Flip The Question’ but after having a look at the question decided to use his last lifeline.

With no lifelines left, Shailesh managed to cross Rs 3.2 lakh mark. He was quite lucky as his guess for the next question was correct, which made him win Rs 6.4 lakh. However, the next question left him in a fix. The question was, ‘Who started his career as a music composer in films as Sharmaji of the duo Sharmaji-Vermaji?’

Shailesh decided to quit the game as he didn’t know the answer and took Rs 6.4 lakh home. The correct answer to the question was Khayyam. Khayyam made his debut as Sharmaji of the Sharmaji-Varmaji composer duo with the co-composer Rahman Varma for the film Heer Ranjha in 1948.
