Himani Bundela, a visually impaired woman, became the first crorepati of the 13th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. Himani answered this question to win Rs 1 crore. "Which of these was an alias used by Noor Inayat Khan to work as a spy for Britain during the Second World War?". You can check the answer here.
Born in 1996 in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, Bundela is a teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya. She is a graduate and has completed her B.Ed. According to her father, she lost her eyesight in an accident when she was 15 years old.
"Losing vision after the accident was unexpected. When I went for the operation, I didn't have an idea, that something like this would happen. For six months, face par smile jaisa kuch tha hi nahi. (I was) completely depressed. But my family and friends supported me during that phase and their support kept me motivated. Mere bhai-behen bohot chote chote the but they used to support me. Phir unn cheezo se bahar aagayi main bohot achese," Himani told Times Now Digital.
She said that she has been watching the show since she was nine years of age and was super excited about participating in it one day and meeting Amitabh Bachchan as well. She has been trying to register for KBC for the last 5 years, but when she received the call from KBC in May she disconnected it twice expecting it to be a fake/scam call. Although makers contacted her many times and then she came to know it is not a scam. Later, she completed the process and stepped towards completing her dream.
"I used to send messages for the quiz show, but it always showed pending. Then I used to always think what must be the selection producer, does it happen through message? But when the online procedure started and after doing registration when I would get a message that your registration is done. I never believed that I would be sitting on the hot seat," she said.
