Manoj becomes the first Crorepati of KBC-6
Kaun Banega Crorepati 6 (KBC-6) got its first Cororepati as Manoj Kumar Raina, an Indian Railway employee on September 8, which was telecasted on Sunday on Sony tv.
Manoj, an uprooted Kashmiri pandit from the Kashmir Valley during the 1989 militancy broke out wish to build his own house again in his hometown of Chowgam, which he finds heaven.
Raina turned to be a special contestant as he became the first to make it to the hot seat from Kashmir and won 1 crore that is a dream come true for him. He also met his favourite actor Amitabh Bachchan, which was an awesome experience for him.
"My house in the Kashmir Valley was destroyed during the militancy. We were forced to leave the place, and since 1990, I've been living in Jammu. Ever since then, I have wanted to make a house in Kashmir, and that's what I want to do with the money I have won," said the Kashmiri pandit.
Manoj also wants to help the other people of his tribe in whatever way he can.
The 48-year-old Raina lives with his parents, wife and has a 10-year-old son in Jammu and his family was present on the sets of KBC when he made the history to cheer his success.
"Amitabh Bachchan is a real legend. He shows so much love and affection, he is so warm, and the way he talks to people, on and off the set, is magical. It is unmatched," added Raina.
"I tried to get into KBC in 2000 first, when the show began. For three months, I tried hard day and night, but then I was very disheartened. Then I didn't try until I chanced upon a poem, which imparted the learning - Koshish karne waalon ki haar nahin hoti (Those who try, never fail)".
"So I decided I shouldn't feel like a loser, and instead, try for the next season of KBC. As soon as Mr Bachchan announced the sixth season at the end of the fifth season, I was excited. I was focussed about making it to the show, and I did," he added.
