Lucknow: Sushil Kumar, who scripted history by winning the jackpot of Rs.5 crore in the fifth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, says that he plans to invest the prize money in real estate as it promises rich dividends.
“The real estate sector pays back heavy dividends and it is a sunshine sector in Bihar hence this idea,” said Sushil, who got Rs.3.5 crore after tax deductions, said here.
Sushil, who hails from East Champaran in Bihar, used to work as a computer operator before his big win in the fifth season of the game show. He was in the city for a felicitation programme and for him, city’s fabled Bhool Bhulaiyan proved to be a tough nut to crack.
Sushil on Thursday got lost in the Bhool Bhulaiyan and had to be brought out by the guide who was stationed outside.
The Bhul Bhulaiyan, part of the Bara Imambara is a labyrinth of hundreds of narrow stairway passages, some of which have dead-ends, some end at precipitous drops, while others lead to entrance or exit points.
Once out, a sweating Sushil admitted that “getting lost was frightening, but the structure was a marvel”.
A self confessed foodie, Sushil, however, could not make it to the non-vegetarian eateries of old Lucknow due to the traffic snarl ups owing to the cabinet swearing in earlier in the day.
“I wanted to try out the tunde kebabs and more but you can’t help it,” he said while gesturing to the traffic jams across the city.
