Babita Tade, a mid-day meal cook, in a Government school in Amravati, Maharashtra became the 2nd crorepati in Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11.
Last Week, Sanoj Raj, a UPSC aspirant from Bihar, was the first to take home Rs. 1 crore.
Babita Tade works as a cook at a government school, cooking khichdi for over 450 schoolchildren. She earns just Rs. 1,500 a month doing that – but said that she is proud of her job and likes cooking.
“Koi kaam chota bada nahi rehta (no job is small or big)” she says.
When Big B asked her what she would like to buy if she wins, she replied that she would like to get her own phone as currently, her entire family is using one phone. Amitabh Bachchan was surprised to know this and shared with Babita that many contestants who come on the hot seat want to make a house, clear their debts but she just wants a phone. Big B was so moved by her story that he even gifted her a mobile phone.
Although this episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati is yet to air, social media users have already been touched by Babita Tade’s story and her winning smile. Comments like “proud of you” and “amazing” have flooded the comments section.
The episode featuring Babita Tade will be aired on Wednesday and Thursday on Sony TV at 9 pm this week.
