Sushil Kumar gets Rs 5 crore on Kaun Banega Crorepati

Sushil Kumar has become a superstar in one night. He is the most talked about topic in India and other South Asian countries. He is the first person to have won Rs 5 crore on TV game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati".

When readers will read about him, they will find many comparisons between Sushil Kumar and the fictional protagonist Jamal of "Slumdog Millionaire".

The 27-year-old is an office worker who was too poor to own a television. So, he had to watch the popular game show at a neighbor’s house.

No doubt, he will be remembered to the mind of millions of Indian people for being the first contestant to win a million dollars on the popular TV show hosted by Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan. However, after paying tax, he will take home 3.5 crore rupees.

When asked what he would do with this huge amount of money, he said he had no plans. In a telephone interview to Reuters, he told:

"I'm going to repair my house, fulfil a few basic needs and then move to Delhi to study for the civil service exams."

He is a government employee. He works as a computer operator in Mahatma Gandhi Scheme and earns 6000 rupees per month. Now, after winning the Jackpot, he will leave his job and move to Delhi to study for the civil service exams.
