Taj Mohammed Rangrez
, a professor of history from Rajasthan became the very first contender to be called as the ‘Crorepati’, with a cash prize of Rs. 10,000,000. According to him, he didn’t use the Flip the Question lifeline because he needed the money for his child’s operation. He said he is unsure whether he can answer the next question correctly and if he uses it, he won’t be able to quit which means, if his answer is wrong, his winning will amount to Rs 320,000 only and he could not provide enough money for his child’s operation.
