A 19-year-old boy who has a vision of becoming an IAS office someday has broken records and gone on to become the second crorepati of Sony Entertainment Television’s game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC 13). Sahil Ahirwar, who during his first year of college used to bunk lectures, enjoy with friends, watch films and pass his time away in his college canteen, dedicated his next two years in studies making him a rank holder. His dedication, knowledge and skills have helped him become the second crorepati of the season.
He draws his inspiration from his father who works as a security guard in Noida and believes that education plays a vital role in someone’s growth.
His father, who works diligently has only studied until the 10th standard. Sahil believes that knowledge can help a person achieve success and hence, he aims to appear for the UPSC exam and become an IAS officer. A young boy who’s seen his family struggle now aims to provide them with a house and much more. In the show, Sahil Ahirwar will be seen playing the 15th question for 1 crore rupees and to everyone’s surprise, wins the amount.
After this, he also attempts the Jackpot question of Rs 7 Crore however, he quits the game and takes home 1 crore rupees.
On becoming a Crorepati, Sahil Ahirwar who couldn’t contain his happiness shares, “Winning the title of a Crorepati is a big achievement for me. I couldn’t fathom this fact when Mr. Bachchan announced that I have one crore rupees. It was surreal. With this amount, I will gift my mother a new house, get my younger brother a new cricket set and pump in the amount to achieve my larger dream of becoming an IAS officer. I would like to take this moment and thank my family, friends and my teachers who have constantly supported me. My journey hasn’t been the easiest because I’ve seen my father struggle on an everyday basis. Even though he works as a Security guard, he does it to the fullest. My parents have supported me to pursue whatever I want but, they have always said to give in your best I whatever you do. This is a policy that I follow and suggest others to do, as well.”
