Now, another contestant named Sanoj Raj, who hails from Bihar's Jehanabad, became the first-ever crorepati of this season.
The channel recently released a promo on their official Twitter handle wherein host Amitabh Bachchan excitedly says, '1 crore' as Sanoj answers the 15th question correctly. Then Big B rolls out the Rs 7 crore question. Sony TV captioned the promo, “Sanoj Raj is our season’s first Crorepati! He will attempt the jackpot question for Rs 7 Crores now. Will he succeed? Find out on #KBC, this Thursday and Friday at 9 PM @SrBachchan. (sic)”
