In Tuesday’s episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, Monday’s rollover contestant Tushar Bharadwaj - the dean of a boarding school in Assam - graced the hot seat once again. Amitabh Bachchan resumed the game and presented the question for Rs 80,000 and Tushar managed to answer the question at the cost of two life-lines for the same question.

Big B read out the next question for Rs 1,60,000 for Tushar. Who is the music director of the song ‘Tu Mile Dil Khile’? He answered it correctly: M M Kreem.

Tushar sang Tum Mile and dedicated it to his wife and everyone in the audience cheered for them.


The next question for Rs 3,20,000 Tushar was asked: In 2022, which city is slated to be the only one in the world to have hosted both the Summer and Winter Olympics? The answer was Beijing and he swiftly answered it. He won the amount.

Laughing and enjoying his play with Tushar, Mr Bachchan recalled his days at a hostel and shared how he was beaten with a cane.

Tushar, who is a Dean at a hostel, asked Mr Bachchan (studied at a hostel) about the pranks they played on their house masters. Sharing the memories from his childhood, BigB revealed that he and his friends loved playing billiards but only students from class 10th were allowed to play the game.

He continued, and revealed how he and his four friends would get up in the night and open the billiards room and play. He shared that they were caught by their teachers and were beaten with canes. He disclosed that there were three categories of canning two, four and six, he was beaten by four canes. 

Big B burst into laughter while explaining it and said that while getting beaten up they were not allowed to scream instead say thank you sir. 


He did not stop here, Amitabh Bachchan went on to share that as he studied at a boys school, they had a dormitory with a huge bathroom and 30-40 showers. All the kids would have a bath together and whoever was canned had black marks on their posterior and the entire dormitory would get to know who got canned. The way Big B narrated the story, everyone burst into laughter. He further revealed that now canning has become illegal.

Amitabh Bachchan presented the question for Rs 6,40,000 and Tushar took the help of a 50-50 lifeline and answered the question. The length of the international border of which state is 856 km, which is about 84% of the total length of its border? The answer was Tripura.

The next question for Rs 12,50,000 that Big B readout for Tushar was: The poet Vishakadatta’s historical drama ‘Mudrarakshasa’, deals with which dynasty? And the answer was: Maurya. Tushar confidently answered the question and won the amount. 

Tushar played the game very confidently, however, got confused at Rs 25,00,000 and used his last lifeline Ask The Expert. 

The question was: The eruption of which volcano caused what is thought to be the loudest sound ever heard in recorded history? The answer was: Krakatoa. With the help of Ask the Expert, Tushar correctly answers the question.

Amitabh Bachchan presented the question for Rs 50,00,000 but Tushar decided to quit the game as he was unaware of the answer. In which film did Dadasaheb Phalke first cast Durgabai Kamat, making her the first actress of Indian cinema? The answer was Mohini Bhasmasur.

Tushar walked away with Rs 25,00,000.
