Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most popular reality shows and it has made sure to keep the audience hooked to their seats. While the show has been becoming interesting with each passing day, people are counting on the show for maximum entertainment.
Recently, the show had contestant Bhumi Singh from Bihar on the hot seat. She is a school teacher and she reached the hot seat of KBC 12 but got stuck on the question worth Rs 50 lakh.
The question was related to the newspaper that made Bhumi Singh quit the show. It was about the first newspaper which was published in the country. Bhumi left the show and took Rs 25 lakh with her.
Here’s the question:
Which was the first newspaper to be published in India
A) Bombay Samachar
B) Hicky’s Bengal Gazette
C) Madras Courier
D) The Bombay Herald
The answer to this question was: Hicky Bengal Gazette. As free thought and freedom of expression swept across the world, an Irishman called James Augustus Hicky gave Calcutta and India its first printed newspaper in 1780.
Fort the uninitiated, Kaun Banega Crorepati is set to get its first crorepati in Nazia Nasim. The Delhi resident will win Rs 1 crore in the episode that will air on November 11. Nazia works as a communication manager with Royal Enfield.
