Mary Kom, Sunil Chhetri donate INR 12.5 lakh they won on ‘KBC14’
Mumbai, Aug. 8 (IANS): After Aamir Khan, Mitali Madhumita and Major D.P. Singh had the audience riveted to their stories, six-time World Champion, Olympic Games medallist and Rajya Sabha MP M.C. Mary Kom and international footballer Sunil Chhetri took the hotseat on ‘KBC 14’ to answer the questions asked by host and megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
During a conversation laced with banter, Chhetri quoted a line from one of the songs from the Big B’s hit film ‘Mr Natwarlal’: “Mar gaya? Lekin aap to zinda ho?” To this, Bachchan responded by saying: “Yeh jeena bhi koi jeena hai lallu?” Chhetri also showed some of his football tricks.
Then, the two celebrity guests had to answer a question, which they did and won INR 12.5 lakh. The question was: “People who work and live near which forest worship Bonbibi, a goddess who they believe protects them from tigers?”
They had to choose from: Bandipur, Ranthambore, Sunderbans and Kanha. The answer was Sunderbans. The money will be shared respectively by the Mary Kom Regional Boxing Foundation and The Voice of Stray Dogs.
The game had to end here because the time was up and the host could not ask the INR25 lakh question.
