Amitabh Bachchan welcomed contestant Chirag Mandot, a data scientist from Mumbai, on Tuesday's episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13. The veteran actor was left in a state of shock after Chirag revealed that he was working in the US when he was called back home after the murder of his younger brother Mayank.
When the video introduction was played during the episode, Chirag said that his brother was only 21 years old when he started his coaching centre in Mumbai. He promised to look after their parents while Chirag was away in the US. However, he had to rush back home after his murder in 2019.
The contestant did not reveal any details of the murder, who killed him and why it happened. He said that whatever happened is in the past and all he wishes for now is to keep his brother's coaching centre running, start a foundation in his name and make sure everyone knows about him.

After listening to Chirag's story, Amitabh Bachchan was shocked. Big B said, "It hurts me to ask this but was the culprit ever caught?" Chirag answered, "Yes sir, the police caught the person on the spot. That's all sir. We just want justice soon. But all of that is in the past. There is no point talking or thinking about it because the person cannot be brought back. What we can do is ensure who Mayank was, what kind of person he was, what Mayank Tutorials is and that his brother will take the coaching centre forward. This is what I want to prove and it is one of my biggest motivations in life."
In 2019, a Ghatkopar murder case, where Mayank Mandot, the owner of Mayank Tutorials was murdered by his former employer, had made headlines. The culprit said Mayank had not paid him his one month's salary.
