Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 (KBC 9) that has been entertaining viewers for almost a month now, has finally got its first crorepati.

Anamika Majumdar, hailing from Jamshedpur, has won Rs 1 crore and has made history by becoming the first contestant to win the highest amount in the ongoing season. Although Majumdar had reached the jackpot level – Rs 7 crore question, she decided to quit and instead settle in for Rs 1 crore.
