In a student special week of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13, a resident of Nirala Estate, Greater Noida West, Aaradhay Gupta was seen answering the questions of Amitabh Bachan on the hot seat. The 11-year-old boy won 12 lakh 50 thousand rupees at the show.
Aaradhay Gupta who studies in class 6th surprised Amitabh Bachchan with his talent and charm. Talking to Amitabh Bachchan, he said that he likes to dance, sleep a lot and trouble his elder brother.
On selection in KBC Aaradhay says, “I just wanted to meet the one and only Amitabh Bachchan. Everyone has a dream to meet with Amitabh Bachchan and win money in KBC. I won 12.5 lakh rupees. I don't have access to the money until I turn 18.”
Talking about his preparation for the show, he shared, “In my preparation, Byjus helped me a lot. Byjus is a very good portal and you have all subjects such as science, maths, history. The concept is very good and then I read NCERT books. My elder brother also helped me to prepare for KBC.”

Aradhay shared that the question worth rupees 12 lakh 50 thousand was one of the difficult questions where he used the lifeline of expert advice. By the time, he reached the question of 25 lakhs, Aaradhay had lost all the lifelines except Fifty Fifty. He wisely decided to quit the show.
The young boy also danced with Amitabh Bachchan in the episode and shared that it was one of the most memorable moments of his life. His mother, father and elder brother were also present on the set.
He added, “It was a wonderful moment for me to meet with Amitabh Bachchan. I talked to him personally. Amitabh sir also appreciated me.”
Aaradhay loves Anil Kapoor’s character and his watch in the film Mr India. He told Big B the reason behind it and said that this watch will help him in his offline classes. When Amitabh Bachchan asked him the reason behind it, he shared that it is easier to sleep during online classes wearing Mr India’s watch. Not only this, but this watch can help them during offline studies too.
