First up was Harshvardhan Nawathe. The man from Mumbai was the first top prize winner back in the first season of the show. He answered all 15 questions correctly on October 19, 2000 to win ₹1 Cr, and also said that he wanted to buy a Mumbai local train all for himself with that money. Though that never happened, but well, a man can dream.
