"Dekhiye main aisa maanta hoon ki koi bhi chunauti itni badi nahi hoti ki woh humare ummeed ko chota kar sake aur koi bhi ummeed itni choti nahi hoti ki uske saamne jeevan ki chunauti jo hai, woh badi lagne lage. A real life example of this is Akash Waghmare” said Mr. Bachchan whilst introducing Akash Waghmare on KBC.
27-year-old Akash Waghmare from Pune, is a Delivery boy who lives in an under-construction building and his only aim in life is to get a secure job and buy a house for his family and give them a better future. Akash is not only working hard but also studying for competitive exams to become a police sub-inspector. Winning a good amount on KBC would mean a lot to him as he could provide his parents with a better life they deserve.
Leading his life with a lot of hardships, Aakash Waghmare wishes he could also have a takeout meal, have the food delivered to him at his doorsteps and tip the delivery personnel himself. But he can’t afford it and has to manage with whatever is made at home.
Expressing his feelings, contestant Akash Waghmare shares, "From the last 5 months I'm working with an online food delivery app. At times I feel that the work I do of online food delivery, someone should get it for me also and I tip them. But, it’s not affordable, whatever we make in the house, we eat that only. Since the last 1 year, we've been staying in this under-construction house. There are a little difficulties here but we're happy that our family is together."
Talking about the irony of life, Amitabh Bachchan said to Akash, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is an irony that Akash who delivers food to everyone, cannot afford his own favourite food which is Biryani. And today, I would like to tell you that one delivery personnel would do this for you. Today's dinner will be delivered to you."
Taking everyone by a surprise, Amitabh Bachchan collects the parcel and turns delivery personnel for the contestant Akash Waghmare and shares, "I am the delivery personnel for you. And here is today's food for you. Your wish has been fulfilled by your delivery personnel."
An overjoyed and emotional Akash couldn’t believe this. "This is the biggest honour for me. In my life, I have never been respected so much. Thank you so much, Sir."
His parents who accompanied him to the show, expressed their sentiments as well. His mother conveyed a very sweet and heartfelt message to Mr. Bachchan. She said, “Mera beta aaj aapke samne baitha hai to main crorepati ban gayi!”
Akash Waghmare will be seen playing the game tonight.
