I never expected to win a crore, 'KBC 10' winner Binita Jain


‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ season 10 gets its crorepati in Assam’s Binita Jain. She won one crore and a marvellous car. Binita is on cloud nine to win big bucks on KBC 10.

Binita Jian said about her big win, “It feels unimaginable. Honestly, I never expected to win a crore. But now that I have, I feel on top of the world. All these phone calls and interviews are also a new thing for me. I have always lived a low-profile life and never been accustomed to so much limelight and publicity,”

Sharing her experience of meeting the superstar, Binita said, “I was also starstruck. During the Fastest Finger First Round, my fingers refused to even move. I gradually made myself understand that you are here for the game and not for this (laughs). But he is a gentleman and so charming.”

Sharing her winning secret, the teacher said, “I think it’s the hunger for knowledge. With time, the more you get it, the more you want. I enjoy the process of knowing everything.”

After quitting the game, the 46-year-old surprisingly guessed the right answer for the seven crore question. But Binita shared that she did not regret her decision. “It was a wild guess and I did not want to take the risk of losing it all,” she said.

On the show, Binita revealed that her husband was abducted 15 years back and he never returned home. Stating that the incident only made her stronger, she said, “I was distraught by whatever happened. But I gathered my courage for my children. Seeing their faces gave me confidence every day. I came out of the troubled times and started a new life. It started with few students and then as more started coming in, I knew this was my calling. That has been truly my Kab Tak Rokoge moment.”

The teacher further added that women, unfortunately, don’t know their real potential. “They are much more powerful than men. It’s all about discovering our true talent. We can also deal with tough situations better,” she smiled to say.

When asked what she is doing to do with the winning money, the proud mother of two said, “My son is a very hard working person. He is currently doing his masters in dentistry. The money will be completely utilised to build a clinic for him as soon he graduates.”
