All you need to know about Tej Bahadur Singh:
Hailing from a farmer family, the KBC 12 contestant has aspirations to become an IAS officer. He works on the farms but also studies hard to make his dream of becoming an IAS officer come true. During last night’s episode, Tej got emotional as he shared how his mother had to borrow jewellery so that she could accompany him to the show. He also said that the jewellery his mom was wearing in the episode wasn’t her own.
Singh, who shared that he’d been waiting to come on the show for a long time, also said that he wants to study so that he can help his family on the financial front and also build a new house and fund his younger brother’s education. Singh’s aspirations left Big B and the audience inspired. Big B, in fact, motivated him and was in absolute awe of his dedication towards life.
