Firoz Fatma from Saharanpur wins Rs. 1 Crore
First Female Crorepati of The Season on Sunday 1st December, 8:30 pm Only on Sony Entertainment Television
‘Aap crorepati ban gayi hain’ resonated one last time on the sets of India’s most loved quiz game show Kaun Banega Crorepati as host Amitabh Bachchan congratulated hot seat contestant Firoz Fatma. Hailing from Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, Firoz Fatma (22 years old) is the first female contestant this season to walk away with the most desired title, that of a ‘Crorepati’ on this life changing game show.
A BSc. Student, Firoz never wanted her sister to stop her studies, so she sacrificed her education due to financial problems. She participated in the game show to win a certain amount to pay off her deceased father’s loan. On the second last day of the game, Firoz had lost all her hopes to make it to the hot seat. But her knowledge which she gathered only by reading newspapers and watching news channels helped her reach the most celebrated hot seat.
After winning a crore an excited Firoz said, “I was very nervous when I wasn’t able to make it to the hot seat in the second last episode and felt I have to go home empty handed. But then I aced the fastest finger first round and made my way to the hot seat. Also, I didn’t feel as the 1 Crore winner until the audience clapped and Bachchanji hugged me. It is a great feeling”.
With the winning amount, Firoz wants to help her family get rid of the loan and study further. She also wants her mother to live a tension free life.
