New Delhi: Himani Bundela from Uttar Pradesh has become the first crorepati of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’. The 25-year-old, a visually-impaired math teacher from Agra, correctly answered the question, without any remaining lifeline to win a prize of Rs 1 crore. She, however, couldn’t answer the 16th question that was related to Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, that could have won her Rs 7 crore.
Himani won Rs 50 lakh in the previous episode and started with Rs 1 crore question in Tuesday’s episode. After winning Rs 1 crore, she decided to quit the game, as she wasn’t sure about the answer for the question, that would have made her won Rs 7 crore.
As the episode began, megastar Amitabh Bachchan guided her to the hot seat and advised her not to be nervous as she has been playing well. The 15th question was related to British spy Noor Inayat Khan, was for Rs 1 crore. She answered the question correctly and won the amount.

Options: Vera Atkins, Krystyna Skarbek, Julienne Aisner and Jeanne-Marie Renier
Answer: Jeanne-Marie Renier

The jackpot question, which Himani couldnt asnwer was about the ‘Father of the Constitution’ BR Ambedkar. Unsure about listening to the Rs 7 crore question, she was a little confused about the answer. She decided to finally quit the show and take away Rs 1 crore along with the vehicle.
