Do you remember watching ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ with your entire family? The popular show where contests had to answer a number of questions based on general knowledge and current affairs. Well, only a smart and knowledgeable person could probably answer all the questions to win the ultimate cash prize of Rs.1 crore.
Speaking of which, a KBC Junior winner from 2001 has become an IPS officer. 14-year-old Ravi Mohan Saini from Alwar, Rajasthan had answered all 15 questions correctly to win the show back then. And now, nearly two decades later, he took charge as the Superintendent of Police, Porbandar, reports Hindustan Times.
Rohan was in class 10 when he had participated in KBC Junior hosted by veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan. After school, he went on to pursue his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). He then cleared the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination to become an IPS officer posted in Gujarat in 2014, reports News18.
