The popular TV quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) saw its 4th crorepati this season in face of Ajeet Kumar. However, similar to the previous three crorepati’s this season, Ajeet quit the show at the last question that had the ultimate price tag of 7 Crore.
After the crorepati trio, we have the fourth crorepati of the season, Ajeet Kumar, who surely won a lot of hearts with his brilliant display of gameplay. Dreams definitely come true on #KBC11 Mon-Fri at 9 PM. @SrBachchan pic.twitter.com/m5m0BMbtZo— Sony TV (@SonyTV) November 12, 2019
While you and I might have scratched head-on even the initial questions Ajeet smoothly answered the penultimate question to win 1 Crore. The Penultimate question was about a British satellite.
It said that, ‘Which was the first British satellite to have been launched successfully by a British rocket?’ The options were:
A. Ariel 1,
Don’t scratch your head as you are not loosing or winning anything answering this one like Ajeet. The answer to the question is “Prospero”. Prospero satellite, also known as the X-3, was launched by the United Kingdom in 1971. It was designed to undertake a series of experiments to study the effects of space environment on communications satellites and remained operational until 1973.
Now, the trickiest and the ultimate prize-winning question was a tough nut to crack even for die-hard followers of cricket.
The question was, ‘Who is the first cricketer to score two T20 International fifties on the same day in two different matches?’ Options were
A. Nawroz Mangal,
B. Mohammad Hafeez,
C. Mohammad Shahzad
D. Shakib Al Hasan
The answer was Mohammad Shahzad. During the 2017 Desert T20 Challenge Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad scored two half-centuries in two separate international matches on the same day (80 against Oman and 52* against Ireland) becoming the first cricket player in history to do so.
Ajeet quit the game at this time and was wrong to make a guess when asked to do so by the host of the show Amitabh Bacchan.
Ajeet, who is an ex-Indian Railway employee is currently undergoing training for the post of Jail Superintendent. The 40-year-old from Hajipur Bihar is a father of two and is married from quite sometimes.
