 By the time Anupa Das had reached the Rs 1 crore question, she had used three of her four lifelines and was left only with the ‘fifty-fifty’ lifeline. She used it to answer the Rs 1 crore question correctly and became the third crorepati contestant of the 12th edition of KBC.

The 1 crore question that Anupa answered correctly was: “Who was awarded the Param Vir Chakra for his bravery on 18 November 1962 at Rezang La in Ladakh?” The options were: (A) Major Dhan Singh Thapa (B) Lt Col Ardeshir Tarapore (C) Subedar Jobinder Singh (D) Major Shaitan Singh.

As the game proceeded, Anupa chose to opt out of answering the Rs 7 crore question, which was: “In One Day International cricket, which team have Riaz Poonawala and Shaukat Dukanwala represented?” The answer was “United Arab Emirates” and it so turned out that the contestant had guessed it right.
