When Himani Bundela lost much of her vision in a motorcycle accident in 2011, doctors made several attempts to get her to see the world again, but they failed. The brave girl from Agra, who is now a 25-year-old woman, did not give up. And she kept harboring one hope – to get a chance to appear on a reality show and she’s here on KBC 13 on the verge of earning 7 million rupees.
She did it, and how! Himani, who teaches mental math, at an Agra school, is the first ‘KBC 13’ contestant to win Rs 1 crore. And now the big question is, will you be able to answer all 16 questions and walk home with 7 crore rupeesOr settle for what you’ve earned and give up trying?
Like the famous scene in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ where the entire country waits with great anticipation for Dev Patel’s character Jamal Malik to answer the ‘crorepati’ question posed by Anil Kapoor, ‘KBC 13’ fans will be praying for luck. . come knock on Himani’s door.
She, not her? The August 30th and 31st episodes will show Himani’s journey of triumph. Rs 1 crore and then try 7 crore rupees. She will also be seen teaching some mental math tricks to famous reality show host Amitabh Bachchan.
“The winner doesn’t do anything different, but she does everything differently.” These were Himani’s words when she described her date with Hot Seat.
“Since I was a kid I wanted to be a part of some reality show and when I saw ‘KBC,’ the only thought that came to mind was that this is where I should be,” Himani said.

What was it like to be within reach of a pat on the back with India’s most revered movie star? “Being in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC 13) and meeting Mr. Bachchan has always been my dream. I am glad to be able to fulfill it. It made me feel so comfortable that I didn’t experience any nervousness. The most moving moment was when he offered me water. “

She added: “As a visually impaired woman, I hope my stint at ‘KBC’ offers hope to people who are like me. Many students with disabilities are admitted to schools and universities, but there are no training academies to prepare them for competitive exams for government jobs.
